Are you addicted to stress?
As strange as that sounds you’d be surprised how common it actually is because a lot of people thrive off of it.
Think about a uni student who has a paper to put in, do they do in little by little over their 2 month deadline or do they let the submission date creep closer and closer until finally they rush around like a headless chicken to get it done.
In this beautifully modern world of ours we have been somewhat conditioned to believe that being busy is good, that to run yourself ragged or even spin your wheels is better than doing nothing.
This sounds a tad silly to me.
I’m sure you have had a manager who wants everyone to look busy, to be doing something, even if there is nothing productive to be done they will say – “I will find you something to do.”.
Yea, no thanks.
If what you are doing isn’t productive, will lead to future productive or positive/necessary outcomes then that energy can be best placed elsewhere and focused on things that are actually important to you.
While I can understand the panic that comes over people when they have nothing to do, it’s a poor mindset to have.
Here is how I look at things through a filter of three questions.
1 – Is it important?
2 – Will it become important or lead to something important?
3 – If not important, is it something I want or need to do?
Quite simple really.
There are plenty of people in this world to stress over the minutia, the question is this; do you really want to be one of them?
Give it some thought.
Do you hate your body?
You shouldn’t, it does a lot for you.
A lot of people certainly do, yet there is something that many forget when they are steeped in their loathing.
It’s not your bodies fault it is the way it is.
Honestly, for the most part it does it’s best to keep going for you, despite the excessive amount of calories you force in to it via sub optimal food choices, calorically dense beverages, or even the sleep depriving activities you subject it too.
Regardless of what you do to it, it does it’s best.
So, let us say you have a few extra lbs, who’s to blame?
Is it your body because it’s out to get you and store as much excess body fat as possible so that you have a lower value in the overall dominance hierarchy, or is it because of ‘you’?
*’you’ being mental attitude, bad habits, lifestyle choices, essentially your consciousness, you mind as it were.
Our bodies are vessels, nothing more.
We are in control of them because nothing happens without some form of thought process first (for the most part, medical exceptions that affect mental/hormonal health/perceptions of reality or control excluded).
A lot of people find it easier to blame poor genetics, a bad hand that life dealt them, basically anything else other than themselves.
You’d be surprised how many people keep their ‘genetics’ int he fridge or wine rack.
It is in everyone to take control, all you need it to look inward and honestly think for yourself for a change.
“I think, therefore I am.”
Wow, this is getting quite deep 🤔
Don’t hate your body, appreciate it because what you see aesthetically is not a reflection of a ‘naughty/bad body’ it’s a reflection of YOUR mental state, of your mind, a reflection of what we might call ‘you’.
Your body is not to blame, you are, remember that, accept it and change it.
Change your attitude and you will change your life.
Give it some thought.
