I was supposed to have written a 15 k word essay this semester but failed (I didn’t write much at all). Right now i live really close to nature (I used to live in the middle of the city). When I lived in the city I had trouble sleeping, felt way more stressed and tense.
Here I always look forward going to bed because of all the harmony from nature that I feel. However, when I wanted to work on my essay I felt anxiety. I didn’t want to feel anxiety and it was easy to do other things instead and just sit and enjoy the feeling of harmony from nature.
Do you have any suggestions how to stay productive in the midst of harmony? It seems my productive have previously been linked to stress and anxiety and now I have to find a way for it to work without it.
The anxiety and the stress is an indicator that you are trying to do something that deep down you really don’t want to do, but instead think you should.
Chart a new path for your life by following what gives your heart joy, rather than trying to do something that you think society wants but is in conflict with your heart.
We always find time for what we want to do.
Not “having the time” or putting something off, is really just an unconscious message that tells us that we don’t want to do it. Start listening to the message, to move in the direction of true harmony.
it is wholly unhealthy to NOT embrace the stress…
it’s a question of whether the stress is ultimately beneficial
this, IMHO, is built on Darwinian competition…
a slave being whipped is different from a natural conflict won
if the conflict/stress ill result in success, then embrace and win
otherwise disengage and find a better route
the stress of conflict can be highly beneficial, as can be infantile outbursts of emotion
