I cleaned my apartment yesterday on my day. I gotta admit I had let things slide. After yoga, I did the dishes, cleaned the floor and did the laundry. I felt very satisfied afterwards like I had completed some kind of mission.
Of course cleaning my apartment isn’t really a mission. It’s just one of those daily and weekly things we have to do. Sometimes I enjoy cleaning sometimes I don’t.
I was listening to a pod cast and heard something interesting.
One person talked about novelty seeking and how people seek new experiences like they seek a new car. They explained that seeking new experiences like traveling to a new place or trying a new religion wouldn’t make them happy. They would constantly seek new experiences and never be fulfilled.
I really thought about this message for a few moments.
I enjoy shopping for clothes because I like to look good and I feel better when my clothes fit and they look good on me. At times, I go overboard on the shopping and looking for new clothes. So I have some work to do in this area. I try to ask myself if I really need the item and if I can do with out it or I avoid clothing stores all together.
“How do we enjoy ourselves without overdoing it?”
