To eat healthy food or junk food?

To study or to watch TV?

To smile or to look sad?

To look at things positively or to look at them negatively?

To feel gratitude or to complain?

To look forward or to look back?

To use our time in a smart way or to waste our limited time?

What will you choose?

Indolence is a delightful but distressing state; we must be doing something to be happy. Action is no less necessary than thought to the instinctive tendencies of the human frame.



It feels good to relax, to take it easy, but for most of us, we feel better when we have a productive day.

It feels really good at night when we review all what we have accomplished. It is much more enjoyable than when we procrastinate over what must be done.

There is another kind of day that is very interesting, it is when we plan to have a relaxing day to reward ourselves.

It becomes “productive” to relax in these circumstances.

Do you take the time to relax in a productive way sometimes ?
