So to recap from a previous article we posted,HOCD is homosexual obsessive compulsive disorder. It means you have thoughts that you might be attracted to the same sex and obsess over it to the point where it takes over your life as proven by a gay test. Many men have feelings of this nature and find themselves questioning their own sexuality. This does not necessarily mean you are homosexual. It may not even mean you are bi-curious.

Tips To Help You Overcome Homosexual Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
The best way to overcome HOCD is to alleviate your stress level and focus on yourself. Take some time to yourself: Go for a walk, do yoga, hang out with pets, go for a swim. Activities like these are known to help calm yourself down and really take the time to think, ‘Am I gay?’ In a recent gay test study, it has been proven that physical activity can increase happiness and well being. It can also decrease stress levels and allow your body and mind an outlet for releasing whatever your feelings you might be bottling up. Yoga has been proven to help center one’s self and bring clarity to the mind and body. However, if yoga is not something you yourself are not interested in then running or weight lifting might be the right call for you. Running is one of the most popular ways of letting go of stress. The physical motion of running and burning calories and using your energy towards going that extra mile can greatly improve your attitude and clear your mind. Not to mention the endorphin kick that comes with running long distance. In the wise words of the character, Elle Woods from Legally Blonde"Exercise gives you endorphins and endorphins make you happy”. Constantly being flooded with opinions, photos, websites, etc of other people can be hard to deal with if you are having confusing and frustrating feelings yourself. Giving yourself some time out from these platforms can let your mind make decisions for itself on whether or not, deep down, you are homosexual. Support groups or finding a close friend or family member to confide in can be a great help as well.

Whichever religion you choose to reconnect with or focus on is your choice. Find or come up with a mantra for yourself and in times where you feel the stress beginning to boil up, repeat it to yourself to help calm down. A mantra is your own personal prayer. It can be a few words or a few sentences. It has been proven to reduce stress, focus the mind, and increase levels of happiness.
