Thankfully, there are some ways to help curb your jealousy Appreciate What You Have.

An effective way to stop being jealous is to stop focusing on what other’s have and instead focus on what you have. This is easier said than done of course. As humans, we tend to subconsciously desire what others have. It’s up to you to stop yourself whenever you find yourself desiring something that someone else has and instead think about something good you have. If you desire a person’s bigger house, think about the fact that you have a house at all when so many don’t.

Step Away from Social Media. It can’t be understated how damaging social media is when it comes to enabling jealousy. It used to be that it was a lot easier to ignore what others did, but social media has made that a lot harder. So many people log onto social media and see all the exciting things others are doing and they get a bit jealous, especially if their own life is a bit of a mess at that point. While no one is saying that you have to abandon social media completely, it can definitely be good for you to cut down on the amount of time spent on social media.

Focus On What’s Causing Jealousy. Extreme jealousy doesn’t just pop out of nowhere. It’s almost always caused by some other issue. For example, in relationships, jealousy usually becomes a problem when there has been some sort of breakdown in trust in the relationship. In cases like this, the best way to deal with jealousy is to deal with the issue that is breeding the jealousy in the first place. Don’t be afraid to tackle problems like these head-on, as that is often the best way to stop jealousy in its tracks
