What are 3 Things I do even though they don’t benefit me?

Hi everyone! I first want to apologize for the inactivity on my blog. I’ve been super sick and completely unmotivated because of it. I also had to travel out of state for a day with a friend, which was fun, but because I was sick I didn’t enjoy it as much as I would have if I was feeling okay. I’m feeling a bit better today so here I am to share a journal prompt with you all!!

What are 3 things I keep doing even though they don’t benefit me?

1. Eating junk foods

I think that eating unhealthy foods definitely deserves to be number one on this list. Of course it’s okay to occasionally treat yourself, but eating junk foods on a regular basis is not good. Unhealthy foods only give me temporary satisfaction. But at the end of the day they just make me feel like crap.

My eating habits have been something I’ve been working on for a while, but I have been getting a lot better at eating more nutritious food as of recently. I’m working on eating out less often and only shopping for healthy food. So far so good!

2. Sleeping in really late

I have a huge oversleeping issue. Sometimes I can control it and other times I’m just too lazy to get out of bed. Even when I should. I love to sleep a lot, but at the end of the day I just feel like it wasted time and I end up overtired from sleeping for over 9 hours.

Recently I started to work less in my room and near my bed and only associate my bed with sleep.  I was a little doubtful as first, but It’s honestly helped a lot.

4. Procrastination

I feel like everyone has this issue. But sometimes it’s worse than it should be. I typically procrastinate because of boredom, and then I end up not getting stuff done. My phone has become my worst enemy when its time to get stuff done. And simply the Internet in general.

I usually try to keep my phone and laptop out of eyesight when working on something. When I’m working on the computer I have to try extra hard not to press the ‘new tab’ button.


Most of the things on this list I noticed are stuff that gives me temporary satisfaction. But in the long run they end up bring me down. So I’ve realized that I need to think more of the long term effects of things whenever I’m about to do something that isn’t so good.

I hope this article was helpful! Honestly it was helpful for me to right this since I realized somethings about my long term goals.

Feel free to leave a comment and let me know how you guys liked this prompt!

Much love,
