Humans are forgetful animals… probably the MOST forgetful of all. And I’m not talking about not remembering to take the library books back, or forgetting a friend’s birthday, or completely spacing on someone’s name you just met. I mean forgetful on an entirely different level.
We forget how good it feels to be out in the ocean surfing as the sun comes up. Huddled under the warm covers in the dark, hitting snooze, remembering only the cold water and how good another hour of sleep would feel. But once actually on a wave with the sun edging above the horizon we wonder why we don’t do this more often. Because we just forget how amazing it feels when we DO it.
We forget how rough it is on a Sunday morning after a “fun” night out. More food, more drinks, more excess… more of whatever. Dizzy, nauseous, dehydrated. “I’m not EVER going to do that again!” Famous last words that have always been repeated… usually after less than a few weeks.
We forget how much better the day goes on a full night of sleep. One more hour of TV or just another TED talk so often pushes the shut down time into the following day. Logging back into email or “I’m just going to do a little more work” frequently manages to keep the brain working overtime as the head hits the pillow.
We need to do more things that make us feel good, less that make us feel bad, and keep the brain a little less cluttered. But we are just so forgetful. (repost from Jan 27 2016)
