This week, stay away from Instagram and Facebook. Cut down on how much time you spend staring at other people’s feeds and comparing yourself to them. Focus on your own existence instead.
This week, combat your insecurities by focusing on the things you love most about yourself. Put together an album of pictures that make you feel beautiful and create a list of qualities you love about yourself. That way, you can check them whenever you need.
This week, share your thoughts sparingly. Remember that you don’t always need to blurt out the first thing that comes to mind. Ask yourself whether what you have to say will contribute something meaningful to the conversation or will only hurt someone.
This week, trust your instincts. If you have a bad gut feeling about a situation, then be careful. Your caution is not an overreaction. It’s not something to be ashamed or embarrassed about.
This week, roll with the punches. Things might not go exactly as planned, but that doesn’t mean that you’re bound to have a bad day. It can still be salvageable as long as you’re flexible.
This week, let yourself be unavailable. You don’t have to run around doing favors for everyone and you don’t have to accept every invitation out. You can spend time with yourself if you would prefer.
This week, be decisive. When you make a commitment, fully commit instead of acting wishy-washy. You’re intelligent and independent enough to make your own choices, so stop second guessing yourself.
This week, don’t feel guilty about putting yourself first. Don’t let anyone convince you that you’re selfish or heartless. You’re allowed to take care of yourself. In fact, it’s the healthiest thing to do.
This week, don’t promise more than you can deliver. Don’t take on more than your mind and body can handle. Be careful about where you direct your energy and when.
This week, don’t be afraid of confrontation (as long as you’re in a safe space). You don’t want to pretend everything is okay when you’re suffering. It’s so much better to get your feelings out in the open. To tell the truth, even if it’s awkward.
This week, put some serious effort toward your goals. Even a small step in the right direction is still forward momentum so do something, anything, that gets you closer to your intended destination.
This week, let logic guide you. Your emotions matter, but they could lead you in the wrong direction, so try not to make a purely emotional choice. Think about what your head says is best, too.
