However, when you finally do get a chance to look into the mirror and realize “I have eye bags” you will want to pay attention. Those eye bags could be the best warning signs you could ever get that you are working too hard, not taking care of yourself or have some other dilemma that needs to be addressed. Rather than running from the bags under your eyes, you should stop and analyze your health and see what you can do to make your health better.

You look in the mirror and realize “I have eye bags.” Your first thought should be about your sleep habits. Whether people want to admit it or not, the realization that “I have eye bags” can be a direct result of a lack of sleep. While you may think that you are doing just fine on four or five hours of sleep a night, your body is telling you something different. If you look in the mirror and realize “I have eye bags,” then you will want to re-evaluate your sleep habits to see if you are getting at least eight hours of sleep a night. If you are not getting the rest you need, then you need to start working it into your schedule.

Some people are so busy with work and responsibilities that they do not have time to look in the mirror. But when enough people point out the dark circles under your eyes, then you will need to realize that “I have eye bags.” When it finally hits you that “I have eye bags,” that means that you need to reduce the stress in your life. Stress is one of the main reasons why people look in the mirror and think “I have Eye Bags.” Find ways to deal with the stress and you will find ways to reduce the bags and circles under your eyes.

So what is the next step after you realize “I have eye bags?” The next step is to determine what the cause can be. In many cases, saying “I have eye bags” can be the indication of much larger issues. The next time you stand in front of the mirror and say “I have eye bags,” you will want to make an appointment with your doctor to find out why.
