Just as there are things I need to do more of, there are just as certainly things I need to do less as well…

**Worrying — turns out it doesn’t help the situation in any way, shape, or form. Things always have a way of working themselves out, so worrying is wasted energy.

**Spending money — I don’t have my teacher salary anymore. Time to really stick to the budget…that’s the only way this works. And I’m not going to get into what teachers should be paid…that dead horse doesn’t need any more kicks.

**Eating out by myself — See above. Though I do this sometimes as a break to write outside of my office, but it needs, again, to stick with the budget. It is more important to me to have the rest of the year to write (and work 2nd job) than it is to have yet another Chipolte bowl.

**Beating myself up for wasted time — Relationships that didn’t go anywhere, time I could have been writing, exercising, cleaning, etc. , things I should have/could have done, friendships I never thought would have ended which ended all the same, etc. etc. etc. Time to let go and move on.

**Double work. I need to streamline some processes, consolidate some parts of the way I do things. Find what works and what can be improved.

**Mindless snacking — actually, not having any grading to do should alleviate this on its own. When I am writing (since there are very few things I can do/eat left-handed) I tend to forget to eat.

**Hiding from the world. No more un-faced fears. No more letting fear win.
