Blog Challenge #9: What are your worst habits?

Here is a list of the top 7 habits people do that negatively affect their lives. I don’t really do any of these…

habits

 

I also don’t bite my nails, sleep in my makeup, eat too much junk food, or shop too much (my hubby may disagree on that one). This challenge is hard for me because I’m the kind of person that if I see a bad habit in myself I try and correct it. So I will tell you about the top bad habits that I have broken.

 

  • Negative thinking ~

I think a lot of women suffer from this habit. We sometimes always think the worst or go to the worst case scenario in our minds. I took a class about “cleaning out your thought closet”. It was very productive in helping to adjust my thought process, taking every thought captive, and living life to the fullest by choosing joy! Choosing Joy – that reminds me of the minimal and beautiful script picture my boss gave me that has hung on my wall in two different houses. The simple reminder on a daily basis really helps change your internal attitude.

  • Leaving a dirty kitchen for days ~

Yes, I was that girl. I would leave my kitchen piled up with dishes in the sink for days. This started in my little apartment when I was single. I would dread going home and seeing the mess and finally realized that it was giving me anxiety. My kitchen was the first place I went in the morning…because COFFEE…and it was the last place at night I went to have some water. So I was starting my day and ending my day looking at a mess. Once I started keeping it tidy, it did a wonder on my mental outlook each day. I felt recharged and orderly in the morning and prepared and confident at night.

 

  • Not enjoying the little things in life ~

I used to find myself wishing away the days of work or chore day. Even some days as a new mom, I want to speed ahead the newborn phase. I am still working on breaking this bad habit but I try and look for little ways throughout the “boring basic” days to find little moments to enjoy little things. My #1 little thing to enjoy each day is my cup of coffee. I make sure I use a cute mug or cup and saucer. I make sure I get up early enough to not be rushed. I make sure that I savor it.

  • Wearing the same thing over and over again ~

Yes, I consider this a bad habit. I tend to fall into a rut of only wearing a few outfits over and over again. I also wear the same earrings, necklace, and ring day in and day out even though I work for a jewelry store and have a ton of beautiful jewels that sit there and never get enjoyed. I made it a personal challenge to start “shopping my closet” (both with clothes and jewelry). It’s amazing how looking good is half the battle sometimes. When you put together a new outfit from your closet and break out the matching earrings, it does something amazing to a girl! Try it!

 

Those are some of my top bad habits that I have found a way to break or am working on. What are some of yours? If you are following along with this blog challenge…next week is: What is your best physical feature?

 

Happy Friday!

  1. You have a perfect attitude in the sense that you work towards fixing what you see as an issue. Many people have negative traits that they leave to fester. I admittedly am a procrastinator and an over analyser. I do work on it though and I now make sure I do the most dreaded task first, otherwise I will leave it for ages.
    For the second part of your challenge, my best physical feature is my eyelashes. Kind of a weird one, but they are naturally long and curly. I always wear mascara though!

    1. Yes, I have seen first hand with family members what year old, or even decade old bad habits can do to a life. Not for me! Always trying to better yourself and learn from mistakes is the best approach to this journey called life! Thank you for commenting! And ME TOO!!!! My eyelashes are long and curly too! We are blessed girls!!! :o)
