Are you a busy person or a workaholic who barely stop? Then this article is designed for you. Some people are naturally driven and never want to stop. It can be an advantage to achieve great things in life but it can also affects our health, relationships and create a possession of wanting more and more.
If we constantly doing stuff and barely rest, it can lead to never be truly happy for what we already have. It is ok to relax. Some people can hide behind being busy but not really being productive.
If we are too focused on goals, our mind might keep wondering about the future. Consequently, it can lead to never be present and enjoy all the beauty of what is happening around.
Once you learn how to relax, it will bring you a new perspective of your goals and its purpose. It will also help you to have a time to consider if you are heading in the right direction.
Have you ever had that feel when you were chasing a goal and sacrifised so much but then you ended up not fully satisfied? Maybe you felt like “Ok, what’s next”. We might chase happiness but if we don’t enjoy the process to get there we are only living in future.
It is ok to plan, have dreams and go for it. However, enjoying the presence is also very important.
The reason why we want to achieve our dreams is that comfort that it will brings us, the feel that we can have, people we want in life, career we want etc.
Once we achieve it, we can experience a sudden feel of kind of emptiness after the initial excitement. We might suddenly gain more time and not knowing what to do with it. We might be surprised that was it and then not be that excited because we don’t have more to fight for.
If you relax on regular basis, you will realize more why are you doing what you are doing and if it is really what you want. So that you don’t get “surprised” of sudden empty feel. If you learn how to relax you can become happier, you will be aware your time and you can organise your thoughts and not feel overwhelmed, exhausted and lost.
