Battling PTSD: Keep your mind off things by increasing your handbag collection

If you suffer from PTSD, then you know just how difficult it can be to lead a normal life. Not only do you have a hard time at work, but also, you deal with problems in your relationship. The consequences of post-traumatic stress disorder aren’t always permanent, yet, sometimes, they are. What do you do then? How do you manage to keep your mind off things? Well, here is an idea: increase your handbag collection. Just as ayahuasca retreats are the future of PTSD treatment, handbags are the future of fashion and they are worth investing in.

Why a handbag can be a good investment

Not that many people are willing to invest in handbags. They see them as unnecessary expenses and they are sort of right. You don’t need the most expensive handbag there is. You just need something to hold your wallet and other possessions that doesn’t cost a fortune. A less expensive accessory is okay, but it won’t last for a lifetime. Actually, you’re lucky if the poor thing doesn’t wear and tear in a couple of months. A designer piece, on the other hand, is very durable. You can carry it around with you everywhere. At the end of the day, you won’t even see a scratch.

Most importantly, the color of the handbag will improve your mood, which is exactly what you need. Color works in the same way as crystals in the sense that it’s very powerful. If you have a preference for black accessories, then it’s understandable why you don’t get it. Hues like paprika or turmeric instantly make you feel better. This doesn’t mean that you should stop the search for PTSD cure. It simply means that you need to bring a little bit of color in your life. Warm tones evoke happiness, energy, and optimism. Make sure to stay away from black.

No need for an epic handbag collection

The biggest mistake that you can make is spend all your hard-earned money on handbags. It’s a good idea to have a vast collection, yet that doesn’t mean that you have to exaggerate. All you need to complete your selection of accessories is one or two pieces. If you don’t have the time to wear the handbags, then it doesn’t make sense investing in them in the first place. Every once in a while, you can splurge on yourself. You work hard every day to keep your PTSD under control and you deserve a reward.

Don’t rush into making purchases. If you see something that you like, stop for a moment and think just how badly you want it. After the euphoria wears off, you’ll discover that you’re not committed to making the purchase after all. If the handbag is something that you can’t live without, then so be it. You’ll forget all about what’s troubling you, so why not? It’s not every day that you get to treat yourself. Don’t forget to practice relaxation techniques like breathing and meditation. They work wonders.
