The modern world is fast paced and time often seems to slip by with us barely noticing. It’s for that reason that it’s important that we don’t spend time or attention on things that are frivolous, negative or just plan stupid. Check out our comprehensive guide to things you shouldn’t be wasting your time on, and see if there’s anything on this guide that you can cut out of your life.
1. Putting Makeup on for the gym and sports
It looks weird and it’s only going to melt off, which negates the purpose of putting it on in the first place.
2. Hitting ‘snooze’
Get your lazy butt out of bed. You set your alarm for a legitimate reason.
3. Constantly refreshing Facebook
Try living life rather than waiting for an acquaintance to update you on how their lunch is going.
4. Doing things you hate
Life is far too short to waste your time on doing something you hate. By that, I mean doing unnecessary things. You should probably still wash up and whatnot.
5. Checking your phone constantly
Did you hear your message tone? Did it ring? If you answered ‘no’ to either of those questions, put the phone down and back away slowly. No, you don’t need it when you go to the bathroom.
6. Dwelling on problems
In the immortal words of Vanilla Ice, “If there was a problem. Yo, I’ll solve it.” Instead of wasting time by dwelling on a problem, work out what you can do to fix it.
