Your head is not an island

Your head is not an island

Have you ever just thought ‘my head is fucked’

Like thoughts all over the place, stressing for no reason and just being pure negative

Then you start thinking what the hell is wrong with me, why am I like this.

You start blaming the fact that you have a negative mindset and that your head is fucked.

But you fail to notice when your Blaming your head the way your lifestyle has been lately

You’ve not been eating properly, you stopped exercising and your not even walking as much,

You’ve been stressed at work, your not getting meaningful connections out of your relationships because your too distracted

All this adds up

Your head is not an island, everything you do has an effect on how you think and feel, the things you do internally and externally

Your not broken and your head is not fucked everything you do is connected.

Take a step back, have a think about all the things that can be causing these feelings and make a plan to get back to reality

Can you imagine?

“Can you imagine yourself in 10 years if, instead of avoiding the things you know you should do, you actually did them every single day? That’s powerful.”

Jordan Peterson

Procrastination will kill you faster than a natural death, I know I’m a master procrastinator,

I put off things for weeks/months, I started editing a book and saw a note I left in it that said its Feb 2020 at the time of editing, 8 months later still not done

I could be in a lot better shape, I could be a lot smarter, I might even still be in a relationship if I did the stuff I knew I should.

We need to snap out of this distraction mentality Because it stops us from living.

We need each other

We need each other

It’s how we got here.

We got here through cooperation as tribes,

Working together to get food, look after the young and staying alive.

Being isolated meant almost certain death.

Today that feeling sticks with us,

If we are lonely our stress levels go up, we perceive more things as threats, we perceive others as threats which can make interactions awkward, it increases the risk of diseases like depression and Copd…

As the uk is pretty much back into lockdown I can’t help but think that the phycolical effects are going to be more disastrous than ‘Covid’ that thing that we may have but have no symptoms…

Meaningful relationships are needed now more than ever,

We’re all connected virtually but physically we’re not.

Reconnect with your tribes, we need them

Your order is on its way

Your order is on it’s way

I told myself I wasn’t going to buy any more books until I have finished some of my ever growing to be read pile

But when I’m tired like very tired, doing anything takes a lot of effort so I I browse Amazon

And before I know it my book pile is even bigger

Because when I’m tired I lack discipline.

But observing this I can now work out a plan to stop or at least know I’m about to do it and uninstall the app or something.

It pays to know what your triggers are so you can work out a plan to counteract them

Not for everyone

Not for everyone

Anything that has a positive effect on someone

Will not be the same for everyone

The same with a negative effect,

Some will get positive

Psychedelic drugs can have very positive effects on some people reducing depression and anxiety

Others it will cause panic attacks and other side effects

A weight loss program will work for some and not others

The solution to one will be a problem for another

Not everything in life is for everyone

Something didn’t work for someone, dont let them tell you it won’t for you

And if it didn’t work for you, dont tell someone else they can’t do it.

Find your solution, find what works

For you
