This is indeed true.
If I keep my mind idle, it starts straying down the wrong tunnel of thoughts – u know that dark, depressing, tormenting tunnel where there is nothing right with you.
Being idle makes me restless & fidgety. I develop such a revolting taste that I don’t find anything interesting enough to remove me from my stupor.
It’s like my mind takes over things that shouldn’t matter out of their folder and starts analyzing them – over analyzing them most of the time. 😌
So, I try to keep my mind busy as much as I can. I love the days when there is workload in office and the weekends when we plan out. Or I read books, watch stuff, quill something – anything constructive to stop my bipolar destructive side from emerging. Or I instruct the mind to keep on musing – chances are it stumbles on something – then well and good for me.
Being busy keeps me happy and focused. Basically, I save myself some heartache & a pounding headache & a foul mood.
Not being busy brings out the worst in me.
Does this happen to everyone?
