Addicted? Five ways to overcome any addiction / obsession

An obsession with something is an unhealthy, extreme interest in it. When someone is obsessed, they’ve lost control of their feelings about the object of their obsession.

Its an obvious thing nowadays but that’s an important part to overcome it as soon as you can. At its worst, obsession is an iron mask that permits us to gaze in only one direction at one thing—or, to use another metaphor, a giant tidal wave that crashes through our minds and washes away all other concerns. We may become obsessed with a person, a place, a goal, a subject—but obsession amounts to the same thing in all cases: addiction.

The main difference between an obsession and an addiction is pleasure. This is because an obsession usually refers to compulsive behavior that the individual feels driven to do.

How to get a control over yourself?

1. Distract yourself

Maybe at a moment you may urge to eat, urge to scroll through the phone or whatever, you can try engage your mind in something else instead of that and despite your cravings. For example,

• Go for a walk

• Read something with some music on.

• Write a letter to yourself / write things you feel grateful for.

• Play games

• Engage yourself in hobbies

• Plan your strategies and goals

• Try something new

Just the same things you can do in your free time, at the beginning it might seem a very big deal but it ain’t. Believe and the most important thing ; make sure you’re not surrounded by the things that could remind you of your addiction.

FOCUS!

Yeah, focus. They’re a loads of things we’re surrounded by, but we never looked at them, all you need to do is giving attention to the smallest but vital stuff just like, water the plants daily, note how much they’ve grown up, how you can keep them more healthier.

Great amount of people actually used “Food” to express how they’re feeling, instead you can write it down. All I mean is, whenever you urge to do something that isn’t necessary distract your mind by supporting an another uplifting thoughts..
