Hey Psych2goers! Welcome back to another video! Have you wondered if you’re doing things that are bad for your mental health? From day to night, you do things that affect your well-being for better or for worse. Oftentimes, you may not even notice that the things you do are harmful to your mental health. Before we begin, this video is for educational purposes only and is not a substitute for professional guidance, advice, treatment, or diagnosis. With that said, let’s look at 8 things that could be destroying your mental health. One: You are a perfectionist. Are you someone who constantly seeks perfection? Constantly worrying about failing to reach your expectations can leave you in a spiral of depressive, anxious, and guilt-ridden thoughts. The truth is, not even the best of us can achieve perfection. The higher your perfectionism is, the more likely it is that you’ll suffer from more psychological disorders. To help reframe your mindset, start by being receptive to feedback and try not to compare yourself to other people. Two: You’re addicted to your phone. When you wake up in the morning, is checking your phone the first thing on your mind? We all love how technology allows us to reach information and entertainment in just a matter of seconds.
