I know. Crazy, right? 56% said good habits made them feel worse. Good example is Meditation. 34% who do it (in this survey) said it made them anxious before actually meditating. Well, relax. If you could meditate one time (or 10, or 20) and get it right, you wouldn’t need it. That’s why it’s called “practice”.
Same with a diet or many other “good habits”. If you could knock it out in a week, you wouldn’t need it. Practice. Relax first.
This Yahoo Poll does mention “cleaning” and using products that make you feel a little goofy. OK, that makes sense. Again, try not to breathe that in.
Here’s the list of “good stuff” we try to do that may have unintended side effects:
1. 34% of people who’ve meditated or done a calming exercise said it’s made them feel more anxious before.
2. 1 in 3 people who’ve gone to bed early to get a good night’s sleep woke up feeling even more exhausted.
3. 2 in 5 people have felt sick to their stomach after eating something healthy.
4. 40% have used a cleaning product, and the fumes made them sick.
5. 36% have felt nauseous from the smell of an aromatherapy candle.
6. 10% have opened a window to get some air, and the extra pollen just made them more congested.
7. And the top five chores that can make us feel worse are: Running errands . . . cleaning . . . cooking . . . walking the dog . . . and taking out the trash.
