The Year of the Quitter: SEVEN THINGS TO STOP DOING IN 2021
Natural Solutions|February 2021
Instead of making new resolutions to add (and later discard) in the new year, Steve Cook says we should be focusing on what we want to subtract. Rather than adding to your already jam-packed to-do list, look for what you’ve been doing that isn’t serving you well. Then quit doing it.

“Many people found that 2020 stripped away their illusions and showed them the parts of their lives that aren’t working,” says Cook, author of Lifeonaire: An Uncommon Approach to Wealth, Success, and Prosperity (Lifeonaire Promotions, LLC, 2018, ISBN: 978-0-9863228-7-7, $14.99). “Wherever you’re suffering— finances, lifestyle, relationships, spirituality—if you dig down to the root you might find the problem is you’ve bought into a cultural narrative that tells you to hustle, grind, stay busy, and keep pursuing more.” Not only does the blind pursuit of “the American Dream” not lead to happiness, it actively detracts from it.

In Lifeonaire, Cook challenges us to consider what we really desire out of life. Through this fictional story, he shares how Americans blindly pursue financial wealth—thinking that money will reward them with what they want—and helps us to discover that our heart’s desire is to become more than just a Millionaire…what we really desire is to become a Lifeonaire.

That said, here are seven things you should quit doing in 2021:

QUIT USING MONEY AS A METRIC TO MEASURE HOW SUCCESSFUL YOU ARE.

You should not stop doing smart things with your money, but do stop measuring your success on it. Chances are there are many people that have much more than you yet are still not happy. At all.

QUIT TAKING ON DEBT.

Not sleeping well? Your immune system could be to blame.

Do you have trouble sleeping at night? Do you find yourself frequently falling ill or feeling under the weather? Well, those two things could actually be related! Your immune system is more active at night, which is why melatonin, your sleep hormone, is associated with protecting you from viruses, cancer and more. Good sleep is empowering to your immune system. Unfortunately, if you have some chronic issues such as bacteria, viruses, parasites or toxins that put stress on your immune system, they can interrupt your sleep and defeat your best efforts to attain good quality sleep.
