1) Make your habits enjoyable

Our lives are nothing but a continuation of self-made habits. It’s up to us whether those are good or bad habits.

2) Find something that excites you

Something I will never forget from her book, Buy Yourself The F*cking Lillies, is that she claims to not be a disciplined person (she has been journaling her anxieties out onto paper every morning for the last 9 years), but an enthusiastic person.

3) Stop doing things that make you feel bad

Period. Like drinking too much.


  • Make your habits enjoyable — not just healthy or routine — but enjoyable.
  • Find something that excites you! — and do whatever it takes to sustain those feelings of enthusiasm.
  • Whatever is making you feel bad — physically, emotionally, mentally, whatever — just stop doing it.
