Beat Obsession

Do you have an obsession?

Maybe you feel compelled to constantly check you've locked your door when you go out or maybe you won't even venture outside without first checking your horoscope.

Perhaps you're obsessed with money, gambling, food, success or the way you look.

Whatever it is, obsession steals your time, your joy, and your capacity to live carefree. It probably makes you want to scream with frustration. If this sounds sadly familiar, then here's what you do...

The first step to beating OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Dsorder) is to recognize that you have a problem. For example, checking you've turned off the gas after you've cooked a meal is a perfectly normal and responsible thing to do. Checking many times (just to be sure) or constantly threating about whether you have or you haven't so that it ruins your day generally points to obsessive thought and behaviour.

Most obsessive tendancies are created through fear so work out what it is you're afraid of. Once you know what it is that frightens you, it's then possible to take a rational viewpoint so you can change the way you think and react to your fears.

To release an obsession, you have to let go of the thoughts that create the behaviour. Change your self-talk and use positive affirmations.

If you let it, obsessive thoughts and habits can steal your time and consume your life. Realize that YOU CAN beat your obsession as soon as you decide to take action.
