NEW YORK, NY -- A new article from Emma Gray about how young women should stop worrying and enjoy their lives has caught fire on social media.

23 Thing Every Woman Should Stop Doing has racked up almost 50,000 Facebook shares and was featured on a Today Show segment Wednesday.

Gray’s list of things women should stop doing include:

• Setting deadlines for major life events
• Wearing heels all the time
• Fearing the label crazy
• Holding on to guilt
• Fearing being alone
• Comparing our lives to everyone's else’s virtual life
• Feeling like an impostor when we accomplish something

In a discussion on the Today Show, women agreed there's hope for getting over these problems.

“I actually think it does go away as we mature a little bit and you realize you have a right to follow your own true North Star and that you have a right to be here and what you say matters," said Rene Syler.

Gray also advised women to stop holding onto toxic relationships, using WebMD to diagnose every ache and pain and to stop neglecting their vacation days.
