Five Habits You Must Stop In The 2020s

Five Habits You Must Stop In The 2020s. Hello everyone, I hope you are well. In today’s post, I will share five habits you must stop in the 2020s. As we stand on the verge of entering a new decade, there’s a palpable sense of excitement in the air. 2020 is just around the corner, and with it comes the promise of new beginnings, opportunities, and challenges. We’ve set our goals and prepared our minds for the journey ahead. But to truly make the most of this new era, we must be willing to let go of old habits and patterns that no longer serve us. We need to make a conscious effort to step out of our comfort zones, take risks, and embrace change. We can make 2020 our best year yet with hard work and dedication.

Five Habits You Must Stop In The 2020s

Lack of Self-Care

As we all gear up for the upcoming summer season, it’s essential to remember the importance of self-care. While it can be easy to get swept up in the excitement and busyness of the season, taking time for yourself is crucial to maintaining your well-being. This is especially true for single mothers, who often have to juggle multiple responsibilities and demands on their time. Self-care can take many forms, from physical exercise and healthy eating to meditation and relaxation techniques. Whatever methods work best for you, prioritize them and carve out time in your busy schedule for yourself. Remember, taking care of yourself is not selfish – you must be able to show up fully for your loved ones and responsibilities.

Lack of Sleep

It’s common to hit the snooze button on your alarm clock every morning. However, doing so repeatedly can lead to a bad habit that can disrupt your sleep cycle and negatively impact your overall health. When you hit snooze and go back to sleep, you fall back into a deep sleep stage, and when the alarm goes off again, you are jolted out of that deep sleep, leaving you feeling dizzy and tired. This can affect your daily productivity and lead to long-term health issues.

Therefore, it’s crucial to make an effort to wake up on time and avoid hitting the snooze button. You can try setting your alarm for a later time so you get enough sleep or keep your alarm clock away from your bed so that you have to get up to turn it off physically. You can improve your sleep quality and overall well-being by breaking the habit of hitting snooze. Also, have you heard about EMF Jewelry? These accessories protect us from the electromagnetic waves emitted by cell phones and laptops, which can mess with our health and sleep patterns. I plan to get one for myself, maybe an EMF bracelet or a necklace, and I hope it makes a difference.


In the new decade, it’s essential to recognize that overthinking can hinder progress and productivity. While it’s important to consider all angles and possibilities when making decisions, dwelling on them for too long can lead to excessive stress and anxiety. Instead, learning to make quick decisions and trust your instincts when necessary is essential. This doesn’t mean that every decision will be perfect, but it does mean that you’ll be able to move forward confidently and avoid getting stuck in a cycle of indecision. So, in 2020, let’s focus on being proactive and decisive and trust that we can handle whatever challenges come our way.

Less Talk, More Action

In a world with endless distractions and competing priorities, it’s easy to get sidetracked and lose sight of our goals. However, to achieve success and realise our dreams, we must take action and progress towards our aspirations. The beginning of a new year is a great time to reflect on past shortcomings and chart a new course for the future. By implementing the tips outlined in the Top 5 Tips to Motivate Yourself, we can develop a focused, driven, and committed mindset to achieving our goals. Let’s make 2020 the year we hold ourselves accountable and take proactive steps to achieve the success we deserve.

Negative Self-Talk

The power of words is often underestimated. Getting caught up in the negative things people say about us or our negative thoughts about ourselves is easy. But as my grandma always reminded me, our words have much power. We believe in ourselves more when we speak positively about ourselves and our abilities. We become more confident, which can translate into success in all our lives. It’s important to remember that what we think and say about ourselves ultimately shapes our reality. So, let’s choose our words carefully and speak kindly to ourselves and others.

That Said

The new decade offers us a chance to change our lives positively. By adopting new habits and letting go of old patterns that no longer serve us, we can achieve our goals and live a fulfilling life. Remember to prioritize self-care, sleep enough, trust your instincts, take action, and speak kindly to yourself and others. Let’s make 2020 our best year by committing to personal growth and development. Good luck!

I hope you enjoyed that.

Talk Soon.

    I am the queen of overthinking! I have a crown to prove it too. Not really, but it is something I’m waaaaaay too good at and need to stop. It isn’t even overthinking about big things. Every time I catch myself doing it, it seems to be over something seriously trivial and ridiculous. That is definitely the big habit that I need to break.

  • Kelly Martin

    This is a great list of habits to get rid of in 2020. I’m always looking for ways to improve. The one I need to work on the most is overthinking.

  • Daphne Takahashi

    What a great post! 2020 really is the year to be more positive and self-caring. We need to care more about ourselves to be able to evolve be more strong and take care of our loved ones too! thanks for sharing!

  • Subhashish Roy

    Overthinking or not letting go of thoughts that come to my mind once I have gone to bed is something I have to improve on consciously. It leaves me with less sleep and the need therefore to get up a little late.

  • jerry godinho

    Our society thrives on ‘being busy’ and it has become a status symbol and the end result is burnout. I like your points of self care. Sleep is the best thing you can do for yourself as it really helps overall. Thanks for writing this and reminding us and no negativity. Jerry Godinho

  • Britt K

    I’m going to be honest, lack of sleep is also a BIG one for me. I have a bad habit of prioritizing other things over my sleep which I do recognize is not the wisest choice. One of my big goals in 2020 is to start making time for a good night’s sleep… at least most nights lol

  • Aryanne Padilha

    Absolutely! I can’t function without a good night of sleep and that means 8 hours uninterrupted please and thank you, baby Jesus! haha I love the list, lack of self-care get easily get anyone burnout and feeling miserable!

  • Thuy

    I need to prioritize sleep, that’s really the only one on this list that I’m guilty of. Typically I get too invested into what I’m doing and I stay up late.

  • LuLu B - Calabrisella Mia

    I’m also guilty of hitting that snooze button! I’m constantly saying “10 more minutes….10 more minutes…” and before you know it you are crawling out of bed an hour later! I need to make the effort to get up when my alarm rings – I end up being mad at myself because you can do so much in that hour and at the end of the day, did I really get that much more sleep in?!

    Wishing you a positive, happy and productive 2020! 🙂

  • Lindsay Brown

    I’m so guilty of allllll of these things! But, as the saying goes, New Year New Me! Self improvement is so important and these are great tips on how to get started on a self improvement journey! Thanks for sharing your ideas!

  • Alexandra

    I think my biggest issue is overthinking things. Really, it is ruining my life! I catch myself often and then ask myself, “Is thinking about this now going to make it better or change anything?” Then when I answer the question, which is a resounding, NO, I stop thinking about it. But it takes practice because usually, the thought comes back again.

  • Scott J DeNicola

    Sleep is so important but so many people don’t get enough. It can be difficult for sure when you have children but also becomes more difficult as you get older. When I hit 40 I started to find myself having a harder and harder time falling asleep and staying asleep. Exercise and taking care of yourself helps to a degree as does proper eating. Great tips.

  • DeShena@extravagantlybroke.

    You hit the nail on the head with all 5 things. Overthinking is a big one for me. It’s something I work on constantly. I know that I struggle with getting hung up on details so I have to reel myself in and realize that things don’t have to be perfect, then accept when they are good enough!
