Things I Want To Say No To This Year

This post may contain affiliate links. 

There's a great page in my PowerSheets, in the workbook section at the front, to list out the things you want to say no to and things you want to say yes to in 2019.  What a fantastic idea.  I'm generally like Rory Gilmore with my pro/con lists, for all major decisions (okay, and small ones), so this was right up my alley with it being basically one giant 2019 pro/con list.

Since my word of the year is 'edit' and I'll be editing a ton of areas of my life, it was actually pretty easy to come up with all the things I want to say no to.  Things that were not a good part of last year and therefore need to stay there and not come into 2019.  So here's my no list:
  • GrubHub and other methods of ordering food delivery
  • Clutter
  • Sugar (I knew even before going into Whole30 that I have a real problem with sugar)
  • Online shopping
  • Being over scheduled
  • Dairy (same as sugar)
  • Mindless television
  • E-mail subscriptions
  • Gators and kittens
  • Naps (Sorry nap lovers, it throws off my schedule for days)
  • Fast food
  • Twitter
  • Shots (the booze kind)
  • Vitamins, supplements, and over the counter medication
  • Notifications
  • Events that start after 8 p.m.
  • Plastic
  • Single use anything
  • Ponytails
  • Uber
  • Game apps on my phone
  • Addressing symptoms, not issues
  • Light beer
  • Drama
  • Fast fashion
  • Profits over principles (I get pitched so many sponsored posts for products that test on animals #thankyounext)
  • Pants
  • Spending money
  • Toxic people
  • Toxic products
  • Excessive self indulgence
  • Cute shoes that hurt my feet
  • Sephora
  • Food waste
I want to say no to these things with the same physical gagging reaction with which I've been saying no to cherries and meat my entire life.  What are you saying no to in 2019?  It's a good exercise, you should try it if you haven't.
