On Value of Relaxation, Procrastination, & Doing Nothing

From time to time I seriously consider getting a massage. I like it because it give pleasure to my body and relaxes my tensed muscles. However, every time I consider getting one, I also consider why are my muscles tensed in a first place and why I am not getting enough hugs in my life in a first place.

Thus, the whole discussion of whether to get a massage comes down to whether I am having a balanced life in a first place, as naturally, people are not in need of any sort of massaging. Still, often we conduct our lives in a way that we need an extra relaxation, relief, and external help to fix something that was not supposed to need fixing.

Thus, we often extensively relax, procrastinate, and want to do nothing. Of course, there is a hedonic component to the whole relaxation, meaning we get certain pleasure out of it. However, in my mind, if our goals are correct, we are living in accordance to our values, and we maintain a healthy equilibrium between different pillars of happiness, we are not going to need to relax.

Easily said, people who are on a mission, don’t have a single moment of day when they don’t know what they want to do, and certainly, they don’t have a need to escape. Why would they? They are on a mission. Every moment that they are not pursuing their dreams, they are wasting on doing something else.
