“If you are feeling a certain type of way around certain people, following certain accounts, or even getting certain emails, and you feel like it's causing you to spend money that you don't necessarily want to spend, then it's important to unsubscribe for emails, unfollow people on social media and identify what exactly is triggering you. Because once you identify that, it will make it easier for you to change how you respond to the trigger, right? It may still trigger you, but it makes it better once you identify and recognize why it's triggering you. You can change the way you respond to it to react in a healthier way.”
