Forum 4.5 - Unhealthy Habits
One bad habit a lot of kids our age develop is (more like an addiction than a bad habit) the intense attraction to social media. There are good things that come from it, but a lot of bad comes out of apps like Instagram and SnapChat. I deleted it! Recently I indulged myself in a horrible binge of content for like two hours on TikTok. Was it a bad use of time? Yes! Did I enjoy myself while watching a child fall in a grocery store? Yes! Anyway, I'm getting off topic. Social media can have negative effects on mental health. In order to avoid the stress of it people should either limit their time with a screen timer or just delete the apps.

Overworking yourself. You can avoid it by realizing when you're stress and working to find ways to manage your time and possibly getting rid of some of the things you need to do.

One thing I see a lot from my peers is vaping. I have talked to many who vape an unhealthy amount (any amount is unhealthy) and their reason is that it reduces their stress, but it actually makes your heart pump faster which is doing the opposite of relaxing the body.

Procrastination- people our age tend to procrastinate homework and studying a lot so that when there's a test or a deadline, they get stressed trying to get a good grade at the last minute. This can be alleviated by keeping an assignment notebook or having consistent reminders

An unhealthy habit would be overstressing over things like homework, school, and work in general. A good way to deal with the problem of overstressing would be doing things like taking a breather / taking a break as well as doing things like working out and meditating too.
