5 Things You Might Be Addicted To, But Don’t Know It

Are all addictions bad? The term addiction is usually used when someone is addicted to a harmful substance but an addiction can either be a strong and harmful need to regularly have something (such as a drug) or do something (such as gamble) or be an unusually great interest in something. If we’re using the definition as “an unusually great interest in something” then an addiction could be actually be good thing.  

So according to this definition not all addictions are bad…there can exist positive addictions. William Glasser, M.D., is a world-renowned psychiatrist actually wrote an entire book about it titled, “Positive Addiction”. He defines a positive addiction as a repetitive activity that you do non-self-critically that has a beneficial effect on your mind and/or body.

But unfortunately, most addictions today are not positive and we often don’t even realize we’re addicted to something, that’s negatively affecting the well-being of our minds and bodies.

Let’s dive right into the 5 Biggest Lifestyle Addictions Sabotaging Your Health (and how to beat them)

1. Sugar addiction by way of processed food

The scary reality is that according to a U.S. Department of Agriculture survey, Americans consume about 64 pounds of sugar per person per year and some studies suggested even much high amount… up to 150 lbs. per person per year.

This is because about 70% of the food we’re eating today, consists of processed artificial food; food that comes in a bag, box, can and is loaded with unnatural ingredients such as preservatives and artifical flavorings.

Sugar is found in desserts, snacks, fruit juices, fruits, prepared foods and beverages. Now you may be reading this and thinking “nah not me, I’m healthy I shop at Whole Foods and Trader Joes”, but even healthier grocery stores chains carry a lot of processed foods.

For example those “healthy” protein bars you’ve been eating may not be any better for your health then a candy bar (ok slight exaggeration but some really aren’t). If you find you have cravings for a certain snack, chances are they have got you hooked. They are the big business good manufactures who deisgn addiction into foods.

The big take away here is to start reading the labels of everything you buy, yes even food that looks “healthy”.

2. Caffeine

I know you probably already know you may be addicted to this one, but did you know that 54% of Americans over the age of 18 drink coffee every day according to Harvard News. That’s a lot of coffee no wonder there is a Starbucks on every corner of every major city in the US.

Honestly, 1 cup of coffee a day isn’t that bad, it’s usually what you’re adding into your coffee that’s killing you and adding to your coffee addiction– Sugar and antibiotic and growth hormone creamer… yikes!

Upgrade your coffee addiction by weening off the white stuff. If you like your coffee sweet try swapping refined sugar for a more natural sugar such as coconut palm nectar, then eventually weaning off all sweeteners together.

3. Checking your phone for social media, texts and email

Hooked on Facebook or Instagram? Can’t stop checking your phone for the incoming onslaught of texts and emails? We’ll you’re not alone. According to Time Magazine, American’s check their phone 8 billion times per day that’s an average of about 46 times every single day.

Phone addiction is real…next time you’re in public just take a look around you’ll likely notice 8 out of every 10 people are glued to their phones whether it be sitting at a red light in traffic, standing in line at the mall or even while working out in the gym.

Social media addiction is bad…real bad. How do you know if you addicted? Well how many times a day do you check your social media per day? Is your phone glued to your hand?

It’s sad but being addicted to social media has created a lot of disconnection between people and “real life” relationships.Next time you’re out to eat look around the restaurant, it’s not uncommon to see two people sitting across from each other glued to their phones instead of sharing each other’s company.

To beat this addiction I recommend turning your phone off or putting it on silent at a certain hour in the evening. Also not bringing it to the table when eating especially when with friends. Try scheduling times to check my social media throughout the week and sticking to your schedule. Turn off push notifications for social media to not be tempted.

It’s important to understand that the goal of each social site is user engagement (aka time you spend and interact on their platform) so they can sell and serve you more and more ads leading to more and more money for them. Simply put they want you on their platform as long as possible!

Don’t let them have your most precious asset…your time. Don’t get me wrong social media can be pretty awesome especially if you’re a small business owner or run an online business and can be used to do many amazing things like connecting with friends.

The key to not becoming a phone and social media addict is… to use social media and not let it use you!

4. T.V

The average American watches about 5 hours of T.V per day. Studies have found that watching T.V, puts us into a mild state of depression. Do you binge on Netflix T.V shows? Today it’s very easy to get sucked into an awesome T.V show and end up neglecting an important project, healthy habit like exercising, cooking or even an important relationship.

Most commonly people watch T.V after work or right before bed which can disturb sleep cycles because of the exposure to blue light. I think it’s safe to say that the average American is addicted to watching T.V.To find out if you’re addicted to the boobtube start by tracking how many hours you spend watching the it this week. Could you be using this time for something more productive and healthy?

5. Chocolate

I got to admit, I’m a bit of a chocoholic. It all started when my girlfriend began bringing home chocolate around “that time of the month”. Slowly but surely eating a piece here and there I soon found myself craving chocolate all the time.

Are you a chocoholic? The Mayans and Aztecs viewed chocolate as a sacred food and for good reason. Chocolate has many health promoting effects and can also be addicting because it contains both sugar and fat. Not all chocolate contains high amounts of sugar and fat but generally most chocolate does.

Some chocolate is better than others and by “better” I mean healthier. Eating high quality chocolate containing at least 70% cacao or higher is much better than eating milk chocolate loaded with sugar. Nonetheless chocolate is still high in fat and contains sugar so it’s best to limit your intake to a few pieces of high quality chocolate a day at most.

As with any addiction the key is really finding balance…which can be hard but nevertheless is possible. The first step in overcoming an addiction is always developing a keen awareness that you have an addiction. It’s essential to be self-aware of the forces that compel us to act. There are many simple strategies that work to bring these lifestyle addictions back into balance depending on the type and severity of the lifestyle addiction.

We all live unique lifestyles so some may work better than others depending on the person but again the first step is always simply realizing you’re addicted. The next step is either getting support via a therapist, health or life coach, or counselor or creating some boundaries and strategies to develop a plan to find more balance with whatever it may be sugar, your phone, caffeine, watching too much T.V or eating too much chocolate.

In the end, what we’re all really looking for through these addictions is more happiness and peace in in our lives. Choose your addictions wisely and notice when they are out of balance. 

This weeks healthy in 21st century challenge is to evaluate which of the addictions you may have and try out one or all of my recommended tips to find your balance.

Wishing you freedom,

Devin

The Difference Between “Weight Loss” and “Healthy Weight Loss”

Experience Weight Freedom (5)

Millions of people are looking for ways to lose weight and there is no shortage of ways to accomplish this well intended goal.

Each year thousands of new diet books are published, new weight loss pills, powders and medications created all in an attempt to fulfill the growing weight loss demand.

Worldwide obesity (abnormal or excessive fat accumulation that may impair health) has more than doubled since 1980.

According to the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, nearly one-third of the world’s population is now obese or overweight and nearly two thirds of Americans are overweight, and one third obese.

The world is experiencing an epidemic.

But what most people don’t realize is that there is a difference between weight loss and healthy weight loss.

We have been duped to believe that weight loss and healthy weight loss are one and the same. This couldn’t be further from the truth.

Weight loss is simply the act losing weight by any means possible. This can be accomplished from not eating, taking synthetic appetite suppressants, chemical weight lose pills and injections, liposuction and manipulation of one’s caloric intake temporary such as going on a liquid diet.

Yes, these weight loss solutions do work and some of them work fairly well, but they work at the expense of your health and vitality and are temporary solutions.

These quick weight loss solutions address being overweight as a “symptom” but never address it at its root causes.

Quick weight loss methods lead to an endless cycle of weight loss and weight gain. Have you jumped from diet to diet?  Weight loss program to weight loss program? Searching for the next “miracle weight loss solution” that will finally “fix” you once and for all.

The truth is that treating a symptom will never heal the root cause. In order to make weight loss stick the root cause of the weight gain must first be address.

Life in the 21st century has programmed us to want everything at the snap of a finger.

So we are marketed and sold “quick” solutions; “8 minutes in the morning to the perfect body”, “quick weight loss”, “lose 20 lbs in 20 days with this miracle pill”, “1 minute to a sexy stomach” etc.

Savvy weight loss marketers and publishers prey on the pain of those looking to change the way they look and feel by creating an illusion that healthy weight loss is easy.

Healthy weight loss isn’t easy, but it can be simple, fun and rewarding.

Healthy weight loss is losing weight in a natural sustainable and permanent way and the truth is, it’s not “easy”. Although “easy” is very subjective to the individual, easy to most people means not having to do that much work to accomplish a goal or task.

Treating the root cause of being overweight or obese isn’t “easy”. It takes work, commitment and at times can be uncomfortable but it can also be empowering because healthy weight loss is more than just about losing weight

It’s about reconnecting and creating freedom in your body, discovering your passions, reigniting your relationships, accelerating your energy, and living a fully engaged vibrant life.

Healthy weight loss addresses the lifestyle factors that get out of balance and lead to over eating, using food as pure entertainment or to try a fill what’s missing in your life. The truth is food can never fill what’s missing in your life.

Have you ever used food as a substitute for other things you want in life but were too afraid to take action on? Do you use food to manage your emotions or as a reward? Do you eat when you feel lonely, bored, anger or stressed?

If you’re overweight or obese the answers to these questions is most likely yes. The answers to these questions also hold the keys to healthy weight loss. In order to change or shift something that’s out of balance, that something must first be in your awareness to be shifted.

Often times these feelings, frustrations and patterns are subconscious or have become so routine that we lose touch with them and they become automatic.

To experience healthy weight loss or what I like to refer to it “weight freedom” you must address the root mental and emotional issues that lead to eating too much and the wrong kinds of foods. Without addressing the emotional root causes for why we do, what we do, true lasting change can never occur.

To do this type of deep inner work takes a strong desire to change, an openness, and the courage to be vulnerable. Simply put, doing the inner work, yields amazing outer results…results that are real and that last.

Steps to Weight Freedom:

  1. Recognizing your unresourceful pattern. What situations, people or circumstances in your life lead you to overeat? Where do you feel powerless, out of control, worthless, afraid, and uncertain? What do you consistently focus on that is outside of your control? Honestly answering these questions will bring to the surface inner conflicts that need to be shifted to healthfully lose weight.
  2. Powerfully dealing with these inner conflicts. A good coach or therapist can help with this process. Working through deep inner conflicts can be challenging and scary but the end result by far outweighs the work in moving through them.
  3. Replacing bad habits (emotional eating) with good habits (taking a walk, breathing, reading a book, finding a passion project, starting a new relationship) this step only lasts when step one and two have been taken.

Often times people try to jump right to step three and are only successful for a short period of time until they fall back into their old patterns.

My hope is that this article has connected you with a clear path to truly take the necessary action to healthily and joyfully achieve your ideal weight.

The power to reclaim your weight and health rests in your hands.

There’s no greater satisfaction than seeing, feeling, and experiencing daily incremental improvement in your health and knowing YOU were the one responsible.

Healthy weight loss is possible. Think about all you’ll gain as a result letting go of the inner conflicts that have been unnecessary weighing you down for years.

Don’t believe the weight loss hype, do the inner work, change your lifestyle and experience how good your body is designed to feel….experience weight freedom.

After studying over 100 dietary theories, and hearing the frustrations of many clients, friends and family about their frustrating experience with diets and quick weight loss programs, and after helping many women holistically lose weight and keep it off, I’ve come to realize that there isn’t a “quick-fix” to weight loss because we aren’t broken.

Savvy marketers will try and sell their magic weight loss pills, potions and diets but the true healthy weight loss is and always has been an inner game that takes dedication, commitment, time and support.

Neither Promoter, Devin Burke nor their assigns, sponsors, speakers, partners, contractors or any of their affiliates will be liable for any direct, indirect, consequential, special, exemplary or other damages to the Attendee or the Attendee’s business, including economic loss, that may result from participation in the Seminar or from the use of, or the inability to use, the materials, information, or strategies communicated through the Seminar or any products or services provided pursuant to the Seminar, even if advised of the possibility of such damages. Under no circumstances, including but not limited to negligence, will Promoter or Devin Burke be liable for any special or consequential damages that result from Attendee’s participation in the Seminar. To be clear: You, the Attendee, alone are responsible and accountable for your decisions, actions and results in life, and by your participation in our Seminar, you agree not to attempt to hold us, the Promoter or Devin Burke, liable for any decisions, actions or results that you make or experience in business or in life due to your participation in this Seminar at any time, under any circumstance.

Confidentiality and Non-Compete

Attendee hereby understands that the tools, processes, strategies, materials and information presented in the Seminar are confidential, copyrighted, and proprietary to the Promoter and agrees not to record, duplicate, distribute, summarize, teach or train from the Seminar materials in any manner whatsoever without the express written permission of Promoter. Any unauthorized use or distribution of these proprietary concepts, materials, and intellectual property by you or your representatives is prohibited and Promoter will persue legal action and full damages if these terms are violated in order to protect its rights.

Youth Policy

Children under the age of 15 are not permitted to attend, and teens between 15-17 years old must be accompanied by a parent or guardian throughout the entire event. Adult Language/Content During our Seminar, we will discuss several adult topics relating to personal and professional growth. We will also occasionally use adult or profane language to emphasize a point or connect with or surprise the audience (though we will never be lewd, and we will always use tact and discretion in doing so). Participants who are uncomfortable with such topics or language should not attend the Seminar.

Audio/Visual Rules and Release

Attendees may not, under any circumstance, use any type of recording device to capture the information provided at the Seminar. No recording devices, photography or videography is allowed in the Seminar room. By participating in the Seminar, Attendee understands that portions of the Seminar’s live events may be recorded in video and audio and/or captured in still and/or digital photographs by the Promoter. Attendee agrees that the Promoter and its assigns have the right and permission to use such recordings and photographs should they include Attendee’s name, likeness, voice, biographical details, testimonial, or photograph for marketing, advertising or any other purpose in any media or format, online and/or offline, now or hereafter without further compensation, permission, or notification to the Attendee. Attendee understands and agrees that all recordings from the Promoter’s events are the exclusive rights of the Promoter and Attendee does not ask for or expect compensation for the use of recordings or photographs in which Attendee appears or speaks. Promoter owns all rights of any audio, video, and/or photograph captured during the Promoter’s Seminar or at any of the Promoter’s other live events.

Privacy Policy and Terms of Use

By visiting our event sites and participating in the Seminar, Attendees acknowledge and agree that they are subject to the Privacy Policies and Terms of Use of the promoter, which are listed at: http://www.devinburke.com/termsofservice

Cancellation Policy

Once Attendee registers for the Seminar, we make extensive arrangements and investments while anticipating their tuition and attendance, and, in the case of their cancellation, we incur significant administration hassles, expenses, and loss of business. Given this fact, we do not accept cancellations or issue refunds beginning 10 days after Attendee has registered for the Seminar. If Attendees cancel within 10 days of registering they will receive a full refund, but any Attendee seeking to cancel their registration after 10 days will not, under any circumstances, receive a refund. Again, this is due to the extremely limited seating for an event of this nature and with this caliber of celebrity speakers. If you are unsure of whether or not you can attend the event, do not register. If for whatever reason you are unable to attend the event after you have registered and after 10 days have passed since registering, we will happily transfer your ticket to someone else or allow you to attend a future Devin Burke event on the same topic at our sole discretion.

Note: The reason we have a cancellation policy like this is because each Seminar sells out and when an Attendee cancels we have to manage the administration challenges as well as gear up the marketing machine to fill the spot. That’s why we allow 10 days to cancel, but after that we do not issue refunds. It really does cost us substantial time and resources to process and refund a payment, to refund the promoter or affiliate from which the Attendee signed up, to communicate all this with Devin Burke and the Attendee and the promoter and the event planner for the Seminar, and to gear up the marketing machine to fill spots, which includes craft marketing messages, creating emails, postcards, mailings, involving Devin’s time, etc. Given the number of our Attendees it’s important for us to maintain this policy. This is our only method to ensure that serious participants signup and that we do not lose business on empty seats. Attendees can request cancellations or to attend a future event via the correspondence information below.

Satisfaction Guarantee

Satisfaction is defined as the Attendees belief that we have delivered on what we have promised in promoting the Seminar based on our Seminar registration site(s). If Attendees are not satisfied at the conclusion of the event after having attended the entire event, and they notify us in the manner described herein, we will refund their tuition to the Seminar and we may also reimburse their hotel stay and airfare to the event. (The only travel reimbursements that are refundable are a Friday and Saturday night stay at our event Hotel, which the Attendee must have stayed at, and domestic airfaire to the event. International airfare will not be reimbursed under any circumstance. All receipts for such expenses must be submitted to Promoter upon request and any travel reimbursements are at the sole discretion of the Promoter). Participants who are not satisfied with the Seminar must, at the immediate conclusion of the Seminar, verbally notify one of our staff members of their dissatisfaction. Unsatisfied Attendees must also turn in all of their course materials as well as their personal notes taken from the seminar.
