How to Detox from Consumption

I have noticed that when I am in full social media mode, I tend to get attached to material things. Like for example: I am browsing Instagram and suddenly I spot a really cool t-shirt that an Influencer is wearing. I am then thinking I really need that t-shirt and I am already thinking about my next shoot location with that t-shirt. Then I realize that I still don’t have that t-shirt, so I am going on a hunt to find it available somewhere. Usually, it ends like this. I am calming myself down and that’s it. But sometimes, I am really obsessing over that piece of clothing until I find it.
And the same thing happens when I browse Asos, Zara and all the interesting websites that have a lot of trendy new in at affordable prices. I’m like “Well, this one is so good. I need to have it”.
I really seem the same child I was when I was 7. Constantly looking to get what I wanted. Except I am a grown up now and life showed me in many different ways that is not always possible to get what we want.
But, there are some options to get out this whole stream of consumption. When you spot yourself compulsively buying stuff, it’s time to change.

1 ASK YOURSELFDo I really really really need it?” This is the first question that when pops in your mind will change the whole thing. Once you realize that you are actually good as you are, you will not want to add that item into the basket. It’s enough.

2 OPEN YOUR WARDROBE “I should count them all...” You have 30 t-shirts, 30 jeans, 20 jacket, 20 shoes. That’s it for now. (at least until the next shopping round)

3 THINK BEFORE YOU CLICKWhat am I doing?” I know this sounds familiar. You are probably having 10 tabs open on your computer that read a name of a clothing brand. Think well. You are having a break from shopping. You can’t let yourself go and click on those. Close them all. This is a little magic tip: if you don’t look at the clothes, you won’t feel the need to buy them.
