Is busyness impacting addiction?


Busyness can significantly impact addiction by creating environments that either trigger or perpetuate addictive behaviors. Jordan Harbinger discusses how overcrowded schedules and lack of boundaries in personal and professional life can contribute to addiction. Being too busy often leads to burnout, making it tempting to turn to addictive behaviors as a form of escape or coping mechanism.

In one of the conversations, the concept of creating a "ritual space" is highlighted as crucial for breaking addictive patterns. When individuals are constantly in triggering environments, such as a stressful home or workplace, their addiction issues are more likely to resurface. By creating physical and emotional space, such as moving out of a stress-inducing home environment, individuals can reduce the triggers that initiate addictive behaviors and find a healthier balance, which helps in abstaining from addictive substances or activities. This spatial separateness is essential for maintaining sobriety and overall mental health 1 .
