  • Social media

    You don’t have to get rid of it, just take a break. It’s very therapeutic to take a break now and then.

    You’ll realize how much more you’re getting done throughout the day when you’re not checking Facebook every hour.

  • Junk food

    Summer is almost here and if you want to get your summer body back, it’s time to get rid of the junk food in the house.

    Bring in fresh fruits and veggies and start planning and preparing your meals.

    Start eating clean and you’ll feel so much lighter.

  • Reality shows that make you stressed

    Take a hiatus from drama-filled reality TV shows.

    Sometimes all of the yelling back and forth will give you a headache.

  • Toxic people

    Take a break from people that weigh you down, cause you stress and are drama-filled.

    Not much more needs to be written.

  • Sentimental items

    No, not the ones that you love and give you fond memories.

    I want you to get rid of the ones that cause you pain when you look at them.

    Get rid of the ones that make you sad and bring up not-so-great memories.

  • One bad habit

    We all have bad habits.

    Whether it’s a bad habit that affects your health or it’s just a habit that you personally need to work on to make you a better person, think about what you can do to eliminate it.

  • Saying yes to everything

    Work on saying, “no”! If you don’t want to do something, don’t do it and don’t feel bad about saying no.

    Sometimes you need to say no to things you don’t want to do so you can make room for things you really want to do.
