On day 2 of Live Better In 14 Days With Pen And Paper we’ll continue to help ourselves by getting rid of something we need to stop doing. We all have bad habits, and one easy way to get rid of one is to think of several.
Write down five things you’d like to stop doing. They need to be things you can reasonably stop doing – no writing “I’d like to stop paying taxes.”, ok?
For example, one I often write down is that I’d like to stop having any alcohol during the week. It makes me tired and useless in the evening, and it’s a waste of money.
Simple enough? Here are a few that might be useful:
- Stop watching TV in the evening
- Stop eating ____________ or _____________ or ___________ to be healthier and/or lose a few pounds
- Stop ignoring the check engine light/missed bill/stack of junk mail/I’ll get to that soon pile.
I think you get the idea. Five things. Go!
