Things In Life You Should Stop Wasting Time On In Order To Be Happy
I get a lot of feedback from people thanking me in form of emails and comments on my blog about lessons they have learned and implemented in their lives. Today, I reflected on things I am doing and what I need to stop wasting time on.
There are many things I could substitute that will increase my time and help me gain productivity.
Do you have things that are robbing you of time? Thoughts that cloud your day and cause you sleepless nights?
Here are things to think about, the five things you need to stop wasting time on.
1. Being As Busy As A Bee
The name of my blog should tell you I am busy and always on the go. I used to have little time in my day for any extras. At least, that’s how it used to be. I have tools, tips, and strategies that help me schedule time every day to not be too busy. Have you dedicated time in your day for yourself? If you haven’t, you need to do.
Just 30 minutes a day can make all the difference. Stop wasting time by telling yourself you are too busy.
Light candles, lie down, clear your mind and just meditate.
2. Stop The Drama
My gosh, I cannot stress this enough. Stay away from drama. Do not allow toxic people to have a place in your life. It is not worth it. Speak positive affirmations, talk about your blessings. Life has so much to offer us.
Struggle doesn’t equate to failure or a bad life. Keep people in your life who love, support and encourage you.
If you have people in your life who are toxic, don’t motivate you, or constantly bring you down, let them go.
The more you focus on something, the more of it you will see.
3. Leave The Past Where It Belongs – In The Past
We all change, and that is a good thing. You are not the same person you were ten years ago or even last year.
We continue to grow and evolve, so let go of the past and continue to look forward and move on.
Learn from your experiences. Don’t beat yourself up for mistakes you have made in the past.

4. Stop Wasting Time Not Enjoying Life
Don’t live your life hating it. You are here for a reason. People always say live your life to the fullest, it’s not cliche at all. It is so true. It is important to stop wasting time on the things that don’t matter. Things that don’t fulfill you.
Life is far too short to waste your time on doing unnecessary things you hate.
You only have this one life, so live it well. Tomorrow is not guaranteed. Follow your heart, it knows the way.
5. Just Stop Complaining
Omg! There are so many people who spend their lives complaining about EVERYTHING! It irritates the living daylights out of me. The weather is too hot, their job sucks, the neighbours are annoying, a colleague is too happy, their car is crap, their back, legs and toes hurt, but you know what’s fine? Nothing!
These kind of people just have a way of dragging down your mood, sucking happiness out of you.
If you happen to be someone who complains about everything, trust me, you are ding yourself no favours. Complaining will get you nowhere, and the only person who it’s hurting is you.

These are some of the things I have stopped wasting time on. Our world is fast-paced and time often seems to slip by with us barely noticing. Don’t miss out on the good stuff around you.
No need to wait for Friday in order to look forward to the weekend. You should be looking forward to something every single day.
Life is a very precious thing. I appreciate every second given to me.
On your final day, you can look back and be grateful for a life well-lived, or look back with regret.
Your decisions on how you live your life will take you to where you will end up. I have three bucket lists.
One is of the things I want to do or experience before I kick the bucket, places I want to visit, and things I want to accomplish. The lists are ever-changing and evolving.
I have crossed many things off each of them, and replaced them with new ones.
Want to start your own bucket list? I have a printable for you here. Create a Christmas Bucket List.
If you don’t celebrate Christmas, make a bucket list of things you want to stop wasting time on, or things you want to accomplish before the end of the year. I love getting into the Christmas spirit right after the gratefullness of Thanksgiving. I love using little Christmas Deco like these in my home.
Every second of the life given to you is a precious and you have to make something good out of it.

Ask yourself this: “If today was the last day of my life, would I be happy with what I’m about to do today?”
I hope you answered yes. If not, do you agree there is room for making change?
Life is on the right track when you are mostly doing the things you want to be doing.
