“Life is all about balance, you don't always need to be getting stuff done. Sometimes it's perfectly okay, and absolutely necessary, to shut down, kicks back and do nothing.” – Lori Deschene
Thomas Jefferson once wrote, “Determine never to be idle… It is wonderful how much may be done if we are always doing.” I do not believe that Jefferson intended to say that we should never take time to rest, rather that we can accomplish more when we do more. I agree with his principle because always doing something keeps our minds occupied, increases productivity, and helps us to be more creative.
After work most people just want to relax and so often sit down on the sofa with a cup of tea and watch television rather than do something active. This problem is hard to tackle but if initiatives at the work place are introduced which include things like sporting clubs offered free by the workplace or other incentives to walk to work rather than drive this can serious help with the daily inactivity. The workplace can also help by removing vending machines that give out junk food and replace them with one that give out a healthy snack.
I have grown up with a family where we believe that everyone should be in something or lots of activities and be a well rounded person. I also believe that everyone should be in an activity or two to keep on your feet and ready for more action. Sometimes this starts to get overwhelming and starts to take a toll on anyone's body. This could start with being tired all the time and wondering why I am doing this or it could go all the way to quitting something you love. I hope I will never have to do that but it is a possibility
Imagine a world with no breaks or vacation. Exhausting, right? Thomas Jefferson once said that one should determine never to be idle and that so much can be done if one is always doing. Some, like Jefferson, think we accomplish more if we are always doing something. In today's fast-paced society, time is money and money should not be wasted. Many don't completely understand inactivity due to the stigma around it being a waste. Others believe that inactivity comes in many forms and can be of great benefit. Today's society needs a better understanding of inaction, which can come in many forms such as sleeping, relaxing or simply not doing. Inaction serves a purpose by improving mental health, keeping one out of trouble, and working tirelessly
First is the activity theory of ageing. This theory mentions that in order for individuals to enjoy old age, they need to maintain activities that replace the roles left behind. There are multiple advantages to this theory. Being more active will help keep an ageing person happier and healthier. Staying active and engaging in new opportunities provides that individual with opportunities to lean from others within the community. Being active in group activities emphasizes motivation and structure and encourages social inclusion, communication and expression of
Activity Theory was officially established in 1963and suggests that remaining occupied and involved is a necessary component to satisfying late-life (Havighurst, Neugarten, & Tobin, 1963 as cited in Mauk, 2010). Activity is associated with psychological health in terms of the means to prolong middle age and delay the negative effects of old age (Mauk, 2010). The assumption of the theory is that inactivity has a negative impact on a person self-concept and perceived quality of life that will accelerate aging time (Mauk, 2010).
Contrary to what most people believe being busy is not the same as being an achiever. Yes, some achievers are busy people but they are focussed on doing only things that are a priority. Long term success is also strongly linked to being able to think clearly and deeply about your plans and ideas.
Laziness is a part of every person’s life that most people wish they could drop, but not that many can achieve this goal. There are so many things people would rather do than the responsibilities they are given. Watching television and playing video games are a couple distractions more enriching then writing college essays or lawn work. Keeping the mind
There are endless benefits which come from being active. The main benefits include reducing your risk of getting certain diseases, prevention of weight gain, improving your mood, reducing stress/anxiety and improving your overall life quality.
The first step to staying motivated to be active is getting in the right mindset. To often we think of working out as a task that requires a lot of effort and energy — something that doesn’t sound appealing after a long day at work. Instead of viewing it as a burden, think of exercise more about losing weight, changing body physique, or improving overall health. Think of the internal benefits of exercise too, such as improved cognitive and physical functions, a reduced risk for chronic conditions like diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer. By widening your perception to all the benefits of working out, your motivation to exercise will likely increase.
