5 signs you need to take a break from partying
It’s all too easy to get lost in the party and understandably so; raves are where we often make lifelong friends, find an antidote to the rigours of modern life, experience unparalleled highs and formulate a life affirming sense of self.
But there is such a thing as too much partying (yes, really) and the excess associated with such a lifestyle can infringe on other aspects of your life. How do you know you need to take a break? Here are five surefire signs…
YOU KEEP GETTING SICK
When you keep getting ill it’s time to start listening to your body, as it’s literally crying out and telling you, “I need a break”.
THE RAVE IS EVERYTHING
If you start to find that everything you do is centred on the next rave, and your happiness is reliant on those parties, then stop for a while and reconsider your priorities.
PERSISTENT LOW MOODS
A low mood may be expected after a weekend of dance floor stomping, but if you’re always feeling grim it’s crucial to look at how often you’re going out.
FRIENDS/FAMILY NOTICE A CHANGE
When your loved ones point out negative changes to your physical appearance or general attitude, it’s time to take a step back and reassess your party lifestyle.
YOUR LIFE TAKES A HIT
There’s always the risk that losing yourself in the rave will affect our performance at work, or create tension and conflict in our interpersonal relationships, for instance. This is another big warning sign.
