This question of the week focuses on ourselves as we delve into our personal habits and addictions. As the questions states, not all habits are bad, and not all addictions are bad either. Some of us (definitely not me) may be addicted to sports or exercise, which is often a great addiction to have! I have a friend who is addicted to healthy food and meditation, there are times when she simply cannot stop meditating for many hours and she seems very well for it! Then of course there are those habits or addictions that are not good for us and yet we simply cannot help but continue to repeat those patterns day in and day out, even if we really don’t want to. It may seem strange in a way, but that is the power of our mind and our brain chemistry! Addictions are often based on chemical addiction, whether it be dopamine, adrenaline, nicotine, caffeine etc, and when our brains get used to having these chemicals around it can be a great challenge to give it up. We may suffer withdrawal symptoms, mood swings, anger, and more emotions that we would rather not live with as life is hard enough without them!
SO this week its time for us to at least acknowledge what our good and bad habits and addictions are! WE all have MANY of them, and we may not even be aware of the positive ones until we really dig deep and ask ourselves this question. This QOTW is not a time for us to try to change anything, or give ourselves a hard time about it, its simply a time to acknowledge things, and perhaps realise a few addiction that we may not have thought about before. Therefore, bonus points go to those who really dig deep and discover some habits that are not so common and we may not have thought about before. I’m hoping to see some surprising ones that we don’t usually consider.
Please also feel free to expand on the question and if you feel like it you can discuss why you think you are addicted to them? There could be many reasons, and for sure we are going to have to give it some deep thought to really discover why! Often our habits and addictions stem from things that have happened a very long time ago, perhaps way back in our early childhood! Finally as the question states, please share which (if any) of your addictions you would like to get rid of. It may be that some of us are addicted to caffeine, and maybe that’s just OK!
