13 THINGS YOU MUST GIVE UP NOW TO BE HAPPIER
#1 GIVE UP ON CARING WHAT PEOPLE THINK OF YOU
What does it matter what other people think of you? It is your life! You have got to let go of what other people think of you. If you are happy with your life and your choices, be happy
#2 GIVE UP PLEASING EVERYONE
You cannot please everybody and it is not worth trying! If you are pleasing everyone else, you may end up not pleasing you. You cannot live your life for others, your parents, your boss. All to a point, all with boundaries.
#3 GIVE UP PARTICIPATING IN GOSSIP
It is poisonous to talk bad about people and talking behind their back. It is not doing your life any good. When you hear someone gossip, don’t you think they are not happy? If you have this habit, you need to stop this right away.
#4 QUIT WORRYING
How does worrying about something help you? Figure out a solution. What is the problem? What are some ways you can solve this problem? Is it out of your control and there is nothing you can do about it?
#5 GIVE UP YOUR PAST
We all have a past. We all have done things we wish we hadn’t. We cannot go back and change it. It is done and over for it. “Appreciate what happened and the lessons you learned,” said Yoko. It has made you a better person and allowing you to live the life you are living. Also, give up the anger that goes with past issues. Anger is toxic! Listen to Dr. Dave and Yoko talk about letting go of your past and anger on the show.
#6 GIVE UP SPENDING MONEY ON THINGS YOU DON’T NEED
Buying things will not make you truly happy on the inside. These things could be clothes, cars, or houses that you do not need or cannot afford. Buying something may give you a temporary high, but it is not going to create real happiness inside. In fact, if you cannot afford it, now it can add to your stress and worry.
#7 GIVE UP YOUR NEED FOR CONTROL OF OTHER PEOPLE
So many people need they need to be in control of everyone and everything all the time. They want to control their surroundings and even the people in their lives. It will not add to your happiness. Take control of your own life and how you live it.
#8 GIVE UP COMPLAINING
People seem to be complaining 24/7 on social media and in real life! People who complain do not seem to be happy with themselves and their lives. Complaining doesn’t help anything! You have to make the best of things.
#9 GIVE UP YOUR NEED TO IMPRESS OTHERS
So many people try to impress others with flashy clothes and cars. “Impress yourself!” says Yoko. “Have confidence in yourself!” says Dr. Dave. Your self-esteem should not come from things or what others may think about if you have a $600 purse, a $60,000 car, or a $600,000 house. You need to live the life you want and have the things you can afford and within your means.
#10 STOP WORKING TOO HARD
Working hard is respectable, but are you putting off living your life to work around the clock. Are you making enough time for family, relaxation, vacations, travel, and hobbies? Don’t always be working for promises of tomorrow. Tomorrow may never come.
#11 STOP COMPARING YOURSELF TO OTHERS
Why are you comparing yourself to your neighbors or colleagues? There will always be people that have more and always be people who have more. Be grateful and enjoy what you have. Do not have envy for what others have. This resentment can be toxic in your life. Be positive on who you are and what you bring to this world. Listen to Dr. Dave and Yoko talk about how you can change your ideas and beliefs.
#12 STOP IGNORING YOUR BODY’S NEEDS
Your body is telling you all the time what you need. Are you eating well? Are you working out? Do you need rest? Do you need more sleep? You KNOW what you need to do. Stop ignoring what your body is telling you. “You know in your heart what your body is telling you! Listen!”, says Dr. Dave.
#13 STOP GIVING UP ON YOUR DREAMS TOO SOON
Everyone have dreams and goals. If it doesn’t happen right away or fast enough, people often give up on them. Keep working towards them! Never Quit! You can take small steps or big steps, but keep moving forward.

LISTENER QUESTION OF THE SHOW – PRE-RACE HYDRATION
A listener named PainlessFly on Facebook asked about pre-race hydration. Drink a decent amount of water before an event. We also stay away from alcohol, coffee, and caffeinated beverages before a race. So, it is two parts – hydrate and don’t drink things that will dehydrate you. Also, be sure to re-hydrate after your race too!
