1. Choosing not to invest in yourself

Live in the moment, sure, but also put effort into your health, wellbeing and knowledge. 

2. Ignoring your mental health

By choosing to ignore your mental health now, you're setting your future self up for a struggle that might have been prevented with earlier intervention and care.
