3 Steps to Combat Feeling Behind

Humans are a competitive species, comparing ourselves to others. In the age of the internet and early specialization, you can quickly feel left behind.

Here’s how to fix that:

  1. Spend less time on social media or change the way you think about social media.
  2. Practice gratitude journaling 3-4 times a week. Those who do it have reported feeling less envy, less stress and more happy.
  3. Set intrinsic goals, spending time on what you enjoy or on what motivates or makes your curious.

Jamyson Haug
