In life we’re always told to DO DO DO. This is a list of the ‘don’ts’ you should follow daily to lead a healthier and happier existence overall. Sometimes NOT doing is the best thing for us.
The Don’t List of Life
Don’t live in a black and white world when you can exist in the wonderful gray.
Don’t hum a tune when you can sing out loud.
Don’t question the universe when it only has what’s best for you in store.
Don’t resort to small talk when you could open yourself up to new people, interesting conversations, and challenges to your own thoughts.
Don’t doubt yourself in things you’ve never even attempted before.
Don’t take for granted the people who lift you up, hold them close to your heart.
Don’t ask for things you deserve, demand them.
Don’t break yourself just to fix others.
Don’t go your whole life without watching the sunrise or sleeping under the stars.
Don’t underestimate how much you have to give when your strength is so much greater than you know.
Don’t hide behind your clothes, let them accentuate the beauty that’s already inside you.
Don’t forget to take risks. Playing it safe all the time makes for one boring life.
Don’t let anyone tell you that you’re not good enough or that you can’t do something. Be undeniable and resolute with your self-confidence and inner splendor.
Don’t try to always play the hero. We all need a little rescuing of our own sometimes.
Don’t go a day without laughing or giving someone a hug.
Don’t forget to rest. Your body AND mind deserve a break.
Don’t hold grudges. Especially with those who will be present throughout your entire life.
Don’t think negatively about someone before allowing yourself time to get to know them.
Don’t shut out opportunities because they seem impossible, open your heart, open your mind, and believe in your potential.
Don’t shake hands like a wet fish. Shake with confidence and firmness.
Don’t short-change yourself, you have so much to offer the world.
Don’t think negatively about yourself before allowing yourself time to discover who you truly are.
Don’t strive to be smaller, embrace the space you take up in the world.

Don’t overreact in the moment, take a deep breath and think through your next action.

Don’t dwell on yesterday, look to tomorrow where a new beginning awaits.
Don’t say I can’t when there is so much ‘can do’ within you.
Don’t wallow through the day and just bide time. Approach every moment with enthusiasm and zeal for what’s to come next.
Don’t be on time, be early.
Don’t wallow in body shame. Accept and embrace it for what it is and all that it does for you.
Don’t just serve yourself, serve others at the same time.
Don’t waste time comparing yourself to others. You’ll never be them and they’ll never be you.
Don’t let others deny your worth, bask in the wonderfulness of all that makes you YOU.
Don’t close your eyes out of fear, open them to the possibilities.
Don’t go to bed angry, you won’t wake up happy.
Don’t go for adequate when you can go for your best.
Don’t stand at the edge, take the leap.
Don’t aim for perfection when being yourself is the ultimate triumph.
