3 Things to Stop Doing for a Happier Life

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 350 million people around the world suffer from depression -and this number keeps increasing every month. So if you want to tackle depression, stop doing these three things to cleanse your mind and stay happy.

1- Making Excuses

Excuses are easy because they give you a satisfying reason for why you weren’t able to get a promotion, have a fulfilling relationship, start a business venture, or anything else you might not have succeeded at. Excuses calm you down temporarily, but since you weren’t able to reach a specific goal, you find it hard to live with. So stop making excuses and tackle the things that cause you to feel depressed.

2- Exhausting Yourself

Life comes with so many responsibilities and duties that it is difficult to find a moment of peace. One of the reasons why so many people feel unhappy is that they have no time for themselves. So make sure to take some time out of your busy lifestyle just to reflect and give yourself time to breathe -you’ll notice a major difference.

3- Comparing Yourself to Others

The world is full of people, and that means there will be a lot of people doing better than you. If you start comparing yourself to them, it will not help you achieve more -in fact, it will make you feel worse about yourself, and you’ll end up achieving less. Instead, the best thing to do is to compare yourself to...yourself! With time, you’ll find yourself making remarkable progress.

If you are serious about making positive changes to your life, there are more things you should stay away from for the sake of your own happiness, such as fear, grudge, guilt and regret. But because it’s hard to stop doing all these things at once, you can start by getting rid of one bad habit per week and live a happier, more fulfilling life.
