The top things that women can stop doing right this very second. Save time, money, stress, and sanity. Be yourself. No accessories required.
1. quit makeup
Stop wearing makeup and get better skin. Quit the time, money, energy and worry that makeup entails. You don't have to hide your skin, your face, or cover up anything.
Makeup is not what makes you beautiful. Happiness is what makes you beautiful.
2. quit heels
High heels are insane things. They point the foot downwards at an angle, throwing all your body weight onto your toes instead of your heel. Exactly how much damage high heels cause can really do a number on your entire body, including your feet, ankles, knees, legs, back and neck.
Walk normally the way your feet have evolved to. Better yet, go barefoot. It's easier, healthier, cheaper, and it feels fantastic.
3. quit underwear
Quit all the tight, restrictive, uncomfortable underwear. The clasps, the hooks, the wires, the elastic, the itchy fabric. Bras, panties, stockings, and anything else can just beat it.
It's more comfortable, more freeing, and more fun to not have to worry about it, buy it, wear it, or travel with it. The freedom and health benefits of not wearing underwear will have you going commando for good.
"As long as you’re dancing, you can break the rules. Sometimes breaking the rules is just extending the rules. Sometimes there are no rules."
4. quit styling
Quit the hair dye, the hair products, the hair styling, the over processing, and the time, money and energy spent doing all of these things. Your hair is beautiful the way it is.
Fading to grey? Lucky you, because so are many hair color fashion trends, too. Really, you can stop dying your hair.
5. quit shaving
Quit shaving your armpits, your legs, your bikini area. Body hair is natural and there is no reason to get rid of it. Ditch that razor and never worry about buying another. Eliminating the need for shaving products instantly makes your zero waste journey easier.

6. quit counting
Quit the counting of the things. Whether its carbs, calories, or how much you weigh or measure, just stop it all. It's a total drag and a big waste of time. Nobody cares.
7. quit worrying
Quit worrying. Worrying what other people may think of you, and even what you think of yourself. Worrying is actually really bad for your health. Take some simple steps to be happier and be more mindful. Free yourself from the worry.
