Why are we not happy with what we have?

More and more people “hit the wall”, are on antidepressants and are not happy with their situation. Why is this?

We have access to great food, fantastic homes, we live longer but we still don’t live happier.

Our ancestors were on a constant run to find food and safe shelter, is that what we still have in us – that we need to find another safe shelter for the next season?

I don’t think so. We are living in such a consumer society nowadays so instead of appreciate what we have we want something new, something more and different all the time.

We are working more and stressing more to keep up, but we are not enjoying the outcome or the life we are living.

I think it is time we slow down appreciate what we have, and take the time to look at the birds and see the flowers grow. If we force our self out of the “running wheel”, we might find that we have time for hobbies and that we are living in a great place, have fantastic families and friends – who we should spend time with and appreciate.

There is nothing wrong with dreams and goals, they will make you grow and develop. But that’s different from running away from what you have. A dream and a goal is part of who you are, it will assist you to develop a more fullfilling life here and now.

Stop running ( you know me - so keeping running for health but not to get away from what you don’t like – solve that) , smell the flowers, do something fun with your family and your friends and live your life here and now!!

Yours in Health & Fitness,
