Addiction to instant gratification

No matter how busy you are, how packed your schedule is, or how long your to do list is, I believe there is always a need to stop and breathe. Our society today has so many instant responses to what we want, we need everything at the snap of our fingers. I have recently noticed my addiction to instant gratification.

I noticed when I would get stressed out after going hard at the gym for a week and not seeing results. Sounds silly, I know, but its how my brain works. I love doing things that gives me instant gratification and I know thats how most of society is too.

I have been looking for a place to be able to do yoga in the morning. This way I wake up and start my day with just relaxing and taking time for myself. It will teach me to stop and breathe.

  1. Katie….I completely agree with your whole gym example. At the beginning of February I committed myself to going to the gym everyday…and I have stayed true to that commitment, but not by a positive motive. I am always looking for excuses as to why I can’t go to the gym one day or another…and I know it’s for the simple fact that I have not seen any changes come my way. I think that instant gratification is in our human nature and I don’t think that it is necessarily a bad thing, just something that should be under control.
    Instant gratification can make us become better people and with it we can also learn a lot from others. Being aware of what you need to do/accomplish is great…and through instant gratification we can see that if we set our mind to a specific task and work EXTREMELY hard at it…it will be guaranteed to make us feel happier!
