Whether it be an addiction to substances, food, television, work or people the problem isn’t the fact that people use these things, the problem is why.
The brain is a beautiful organ, however, composed of a destructive mind. It constantly wanders day and night stuck in resentments, ego, greed, lust and attachment. These are the main psychological health barriers that cause people to behave in addictive ways. They cause us to be blocked in all realms of wellness, including spiritual wellness.
Spiritual wellness refers to someone having the ability to be content, compassionate, honest, un self-centered, have a purpose and who has a connection with the universe.
Nevertheless, addictions are the repeat use of external things, which act only as temporary solutions to internal psychological problems. However, these are like band aides and never fix the real underlying root problems.
Working with a Life Coach can help address and overcome the psychological health barriers in ones life, in turn, yield optimal wellness.
