How often you gamble matters

Research shows that people who keep their gambling to once a week or less, feel healthier and happier.

Naturally the more we do something, the more we enjoy it and we can get preoccupied with doing it again and again. Gambling too often can creep up on you and before you realise it, it begins to take over other aspects of your life.

The first step to finding the right balance again, is reducing how often you gamble. This includes not just playing or betting but also thinking about it too.

Ultimately, the aim is to keep gambling activity to one day per week or less and over time you will start to feel happier and healthier.
