IT IS COLD UNDER THE SHADE
I have to admit, I have been craving some laziness this passed week. I was, and maybe still am a little bit, wanting to get things done and to spend the day doing nothing but watching Perception online. Even getting myself to get out of home seemed like a very hard task, we all know how comfortable a sofa can be.
One think I always notice whenever I get to this place is that spending time at home doing absolutely nothing can often be a mix of emotions. We feel comfortable and in peace, but also guilty and bad about ourselves because we learned that if we stay at home doing nothing is not a thing to be proud of.
And if you are like me, you don’t need to get into this habit for a week or two, a simple day or a couple of hours doing absolutely nothing that we could call “productive” can be as annoying as having nothing to eat when hungry. As soon as I notice that three hours have passed and productiveness is going below zero, I feel the urge to change the situation and start doing something right away.
Now I would say that this might not be as healthy as staying at home for days watching TV shows eating crap or playing games online to a point you didn’t even notice that a month has passed. So I asked myself, why do we fall into these extremes?
We are humans not pets or computers. We can’t rely on someone to take care of us for the rest of our lives, (well, we could till someday I guess) and neither put ourselves through the discomfort of depriving from fun and rest in order to get things done, because there will be always things to do.
You know that you don’t have that equilibrium when you find yourself craving the extreme opposite of what you are living.
So which one is more likely to become your extreme?
See you next week
