Lets talk about habits, as humans we are habitual beings, we usually work best with a routine. This can be beneficial for physical and mental health.
For example if you go to bed at the same time and wake at the same time your body usually works better. Any disruption to your sleep cycle can cause anxiety, stress and depression.
Other habits could relate to your exercise regime. If you take a daily walk it can do wonders for your physical health. If you just stop any routine you can become lethargic, depressed and more anxious.
