Bad habits start from the minute you wake up to the minute you go to sleep. Varying bad habits can cause your brain and body specific stressors in distinct ways- for example, living in a cluttered environment raises the level of cortisol in your system. Generally speaking, however, bad habits contribute to your anxiety because you know that you should be taking care of something, and if you took care of it in the way which would make it a good habit, you wouldn’t feel anxious about it. Alas, anxiety is a perpetual cycle until it is stopped. These are some of the bad habits you can change every day.

Not making your bed in the morning and keeping a disheveled bedroom

From military generals to self help gurus, many professionals suggest making your bed in the morning. Yes, it is a task. Yes, it is a chore. Yes, it is important. Not making your bed may seem like a way to save you time in the morning and take one thing off your plate to worry about at the start of the day. At the end of the day, however, you’ll want your bed made. Coming home to a clean and orderly room not only helps your nighttime anxiety, but eases your worries during the day. You don’t have to think about your messy room at home or your unmade bed. Instead you know that when you get home, there is a clean and organized room hosting a nicely made bed waiting for your return. Turn down your better and sleep with ease knowing everything is in its right place.

Spending too much time with your eyes connected to screens

Screen time is scientifically connected to depression, anxiety, and a list of other issues. Researchers have warned that spending too much time staring at screens is a threat to mental as well as physical health. Whether it is a TV, a smartphone, or a computer, you need to give your eyes, brain, and body a break. Screens stimulate the brain. Bluelight which powers the screens also stimulate the brain. The brain needs to relax and rest without stimulation throughout the day.
