No Goals, Just Happiness
Today, I stumbled upon this article by Michael Taylor.
Inter alia, he writes:
"Here's the science behind it: When our attention is aimed narrowly and forcefully at accomplishing goals — for example in yoga, jumping and pushing into poses — our body is bathed in stress hormones, including cortisol. We become chemically less able to see the full range of options available to us. We are less creative and less intuitive. We're ready to survive an attacking tiger, but that's about it. Keep pushing this way, and we're likely to gain more weight than we need, injure our bodies, and suffer from a variety of stress-related disorders."
He speaks mostly about yoga practice, but I can agree with him about this with regard to our whole life based on my experience of nearly 6 decades. :)
It has never felt natural for me to set goals and push though until I reach them. So I have dropped doing it more and more. And life has juts unfolded and become more and more joyful.
Like Michael Taylor words it: "We get happy, creative and intuitive. It feels amazing!"
Oh, yeah! And I can help you to learn, how to change the habit of living in misery!
