    Number 3. Saying “yes” just because.

    It really resonates with me. It’s the whole “you’re too nice” thing. Putting others needs and feelings in front of your own all the time leads to being taken for granted unfortunately. We need a balance of helping others out but also doing what’s right for ourselves.

    I so needed to read this. I am 20 years old, i will be 21 in March.

    Now i do not drink that often really, so thats alright.

    I AM SO INDECISIVE, in every aspect of my life, which irritates the hell out of my boyfriend.

    If i see something i want i tell myself its just a treat, and then im super upset when the money leaves my bank haha!

    Sleeping more makes a whole lot of sense, my mind and my body do need a little rest now and then.. Well every night!

    Thank you for such an easy to read post, and a beautiful blog.

    Loved it x

    #1 Binge Drinking is a new one I have been telling myself to completely stop. I turned 29 in September and I told myself I wanted to break the “i can handle one more glass of wine” mentality into my 30’s. I just don’t like feeling groggy in the morning anymore and like you said it is very unhealthy and unsafe!

    Also, #5 is a constant struggle but, I think I am finally learning a few much needed lessons in my spending habits.

    This post is perfect for me. I’m about to turn 21 next month and I’m really.looking forward to it. Of course, I’ve already had my share of drinks (not a ton but still), but I’m excited to be able to buy stuff ‘I’ wanna drink. And also bring able to buy cheese fries at the bar’s store because they’re bomb (but because they also sell alcohol you have to be 21 to enter, wasn’t always like that).

    I’m definitely too indecisive for my own good. I’m constantly second guessing myself, especially when it comes to school work.

    I have insomnia so getting enough sleep is a luxury that I don’t get to have.

    I’m not even gonna go into ‘overspending’ *cringes at self*

    Oooooh great tips! So hard not to draw a line on saying yes to just because- sometimes it does end up being fun!! But most of the time, yes huge waste of time and money

    I turn twenty in two weeks, so these are so helpful for me! I have a huge problem being indecisive/people pleaser. I want to change that this upcoming year! Saying yes to everything really catches up with you and I am in the middle of that busy, stressful time due to my people pleasing! I love sleep, so I can for sure get more! I had a problem with overspending, but lately I have been so much better! I need to make sure that continues this year! Thank you so much for your words of wisdom! All of these are preparing me well for turning twenty soon!!!

    I’m so happy that I never really picked up these habits in the first place – I guess growing up impoverished kind of put a dent in any ability I would have had to overspend on stuff I don’t need or binge drink a lot.

    I guess if I had a habit I would like to break, it be my penchant for staying up late and watching Youtube videos until the wee hours. It probably won’t happen, but I can still dream!

    Stumbled across this post. It is as if I wrote it myself. I had to bring out my notepad and write them down. They are all habits I need to break.
