Stop Trying To Push Yourself
The Tale Of The Negative End Of Working Your Heart Out
When an individual talks of hard work, we generally think of continuous productivity paired with late nights and early days trying to accomplish something. More often than not, we too replicate this in an attempt to try and work hard towards our pursuit.
However, this is a misconception that is rooted deep within our mentality, and it is one that has the potential to completely shatter our will to live. While the premise around being in a primal productive state might be enticing, it comes with various drawbacks.
There is a reason so many people are innately lazy: have you thought about it? How come the most privileged children are always the ones who are willing to do the least work? There is a psychological understanding behind this and it provides a clue as to the entity that is working itself.
It lies on the basis of development in the youth; they replicate the ideals of those around them. Those who have already reached a level of success radiate the idea that relaxation is far better than work due to the struggles that they are aware of; however, this also means that the child picks up on the negativity caused as a product of one’s cognitive bias.
When one works constantly pushing themselves past their normal biological clock, one might be proud once or twice; in fact, I myself have a few acquaintances who constantly talk about their ability to stay up and study. However, this is truly an impediment to our daily lifestyle; whether or not you feel the immediate effects of it, sleep deprivation is a real thing, and unless you are genetically wired to sleep less, one requires it to function rationally.
Physical exhaustion might also be a hurdle you have to address, for in many cases, despite a heavy workload taxing our mental state, it wears our physical function as well.
One shouldn’t find that primal productivity is the best way to live, for, over periods of a meager 1–2 weeks, one will begin to develop various bodily issues and mental disorders. This is one of the primary reasons students around the world are developing anxiety and depression; they are being overworked far too much.
On occasion, it might be useful to pursue this, but one shouldn’t find this to be a routine cycle. When people address “pushing yourself”., they generally mean changing your attitude to a belief that can supplement your learning. there should be no reason you are overworking yourself like this, and if you are, it is never too late to stop and return back to a healthy lifestyle.
