If you don’t sleep well, you just create about 20 new problems for yourself.In psychology they call it “coping mechanisms” patterns of behavior to help you manage stress.Here’s a few positive coping mechanisms:
Prayer, meditation, taking time off, having fun, helping others, going to the gym, hitting a punching bag, calling a friend, establishing accountability buddies in your life, distraction techniques.But we also have negative coping mechanisms:
Stewing in self-pity, drinking excess alcohol, drugs, anything that numbs you, eating crap food. Not exercising. Researchers are now saying, “Sitting is the new smoking.”
