Unconscious habits that affect your mental health

Our thoughts create the reality we live, followed by our words and actions. There are situations when we set obstacles for ourselves, and unfortunately, this can have a negative impact on a person's mental health.

Here are 4 things that are bad for your mental health:

1. Whining - It's okay to show your emotions to others, but if you're constantly complaining, you're just piling up negativity inside yourself. According to experts, regret is part of your body's emotional response. It's your body's way of meeting your emotional needs. But when you complain too much, it can do more harm than good, as you can easily get lost in negative thoughts that affect your mental health.

3. Wicked jokes about yourself - It's great when a person knows how to make jokes about themselves. But, if you do it with mean comments, and you humiliate yourself in front of others, and it becomes a habit, this can be a sign that you have negativity and that you don't have enough self-esteem. This is most often done by people who are afraid of receiving a negative comment from others, so then they begin to humiliate themselves so that others do not have the opportunity. This kind of behavior has a bad effect on self-confidence and mental health in general.

5. Multitasking - a modern skill that is most valued today. Companies hire multitaskers to increase productivity and profits. Housework also requires multitasking. It's nice to solve many different problems at once. But multitasking has a negative impact on mental health. Multitasking can cause negative emotions, irritability, stress, and anxiety.

6. Bad posture - Although it sounds unusual, according to research published in the Journal of Behavioral Therapy and Experimental Psychology, a person's bad posture affects their mood. The experiment showed that people with a bad posture are more likely to be in a bad mood. Those who had good posture showed good mood and more self-esteem. Good and upright posture also ensures concentration and attention even in stressful situations. So start practicing your posture to look and feel better.

If you feel that your mental health is impaired, seek professional help!
