2. Excessive Alcohol Consumption
3. Impulse Shopping
Ladies, I think we’ve all fallen guilty to this at one point or another. Remember that fancy juicer you saw an ad for and immediately swore you’d get sooo much use out of and now sits in the back of your cabinet? Here’s a question; what need were you trying to meet by buying that juicer? Were you bored and looking for excitement? Were you feeling guilty about your lifestyle or concerned with a lack of progress? Were you simply lacking purpose that day/during that time?
4. Too Much TV
This is probably the most subtle one on the list. Unlike inappropriate eating or drinking habits, and spending money you don’t need to spend (or worse – don’t have), there’s nothing fundamentally wrong with watching a lot of TV. HOWEVER, it’s still worth taking a deeper look if you find that it’s the only thing you feel like doing, you’re spending hours of your day in front of the tv, or you’re unable to sit in a quiet moment and turn to the TV constantly.
Are you simply chronically bored? Looking for distractions from your life? Are you trying to fill your spare time? Are you struggling to relax? Are you lacking meaning and purpose in your life and just don’t have much else to do?
So here’s the deal; if you take a closer look at your habits and discover that maybe just maybe there could be something else going on, it’s time to act. Don’t ignore it and hope it gets better simply because you don’t immediately know the root cause. Instead, take an active role in your mental wellness and ask yourself questions as you would a friend. What’s been going on? What do you think about at night when you can’t sleep? What are you trying to escape? Next up, we’ll talk about how to replace these unhealthy coping mechanisms with healthier ones, and how that fits into your overall wellness.
Stay healthy, stay well, folks!
