5 Habits That Harm Mental Health

Habits are automatic modes of behaviour driven by deeply ingrained neurological patterns. They are the things we do again and again, with little to no awareness.1. Overuse of Social Media

Most of us are guilty of it from time to time,  but consistently closing up the hours on Instagram. is a sure-fire way to promote anxiety and low self-esteem, especially if you’re constantly comparing yourself to others.

2. Poor Sleep

Overuse of social media can be linked to another bad habit that can impact your mental health: poor sleep.
“Sleep is a source of physical and emotional resilience,”.”By improving your sleep, you can improve your mood, and improve your natural physical and mental health.”

3. Overthinking Everything

Overthinking refers to paying too much attention to opportunities you haven’t taken, feelings of regret, or finding yourself anxious and worrying about future tasks you haven’t completed. These sorts of thoughts can impact the mental health and anxiety you feel on a day-to-day basis.

4. Lack of Exercise

Maintaining physical fitness is about far more than running faster,  looking better, or lifting more.
Many people think exercise is just for Physical health. But it has a hugely positive effect on mental health, too and a lack of it is likely to have a negative impact on how you feel.

5. Being Overly Negative

Another habit that many of us have, which may be harming our mental health, is constantly complaining, and looking at the glass of half empty instead of half full.
Perception can change by several things, such as the thing we watch, how we consume media and the things we read.
