1. You never call in sick
Although you might think never taking a sick day shows commitment, if you're genuinely ill and need to take a day off to recover, don't think twice about it. Your colleagues don't want you coughing all over the snacks table at work and sharing your germs, and nobody else is going to think less on you for taking the day off - so you shouldn't either.
2. You feel guilty for canceling plans
See above. If something has come up which means you can't actually commit to plans you've made prior, it's not the end of the world. You're allowed to change plans - especially if it's for a legitimate reason or because you actually just don't want to go. It'll be forgotten within days, anyway.
3. You're constantly tired
The chances are you've said yes to too many things, are working too hard and don't give yourself any time off - be it from work, social life or other commitments. The solution? Clear a weekend in your calendar, slob around with snacks and watch a Netflix marathon. Bingo.
4. You over think things
Nothing is more emotionally draining than over thinking things, especially as we all tend to dwell on the negatives or mistakes we've made previously. Or worse, over thinking things that haven't even happened yet - which can only be a recipe for getting wound up. Give yourself a break, yeah?
5. You don't praise your achievements
If you don't celebrate your achievements, however big or small, everything will start to merge into one long line of monotony. Whether it's a new job, running a PB or even eating a whole pack of Oreos in one sitting, self praise is important for your well being.
6. You compare yourself to others
Comparison is the thief of joy, and so by strolling through Instagram and asking yourself why you're not as rich/pretty/curvy/clever as X, Y and Z on your timeline, you're only being harder on yourself than you need to be. Use them as inspiration, yes, but what's the point in stressing out and comparing yourself to people you don't even know when it makes you sad?
7. You never feel good enough
Also known as imposter syndrome, making yourself feel constantly inadequate is unnecessary. Whether it's work, relationship or otherwise based, you wouldn't be in the position you're in if you weren't good enough for it - so stop making yourself feel like it's a fluke or isn't down to your hard work.
8. You worry about everything
Constant worrying, often about things that won't even happen, is never going to have a positive impact on your life. If anything, it'll only put you in a constant state of anxiety and hold you back from what you should actually be achieving. DON'T LET IT.
9. You can't let things go
Yes you probably could have handled that break up better 9 years ago or thought of a better response to that embarrassing moment during the work night out last week, but stop beating yourself up about it and take a break.
