We are creatures of habit. From a very young age we start picking up on habits around us that satisfy some part of our needs and keep repeating them.
All habits are stored and ready for quick retrieval in the subconscious mind.
Many people maintain habits because they are recognizable ways of behaving with different situations.
Bad habits may be developed to serve logical and necessary needs, but at times, they can have severe consequences, harming emotional and physical wellbeing, career and relationships.
What Sorts Of Needs To Bad Habits Satisfy?
Most individuals adapt bad habits to avert anxiety, depression and stress. Some of the most common ways people try to self-medicate and feel better include smoking, overeating and drinking.
Pulling hair and biting nails are also other habits they might take up to gain attention or control over a situation. In children, bad habits may form when they are repeatedly made to feel guilty or worthless.
However, every bad habit doesn’t involve physical harm. Other bad habits include negative self-talk, OCD, chronic procrastination.
