Everyone wants to be happy. We want to worry less and to feel more joyful. Let’s take a deeper look at that. Some people are “a bundle of “nerves” ” where even small things trigger them into too much tension, anger, anxiety or some unpleasant emotion. This is likely a body-chemistry thing with them—-drugs? too much caffeine, or some actual vitamin/mineral or hormone imbalance, keeping them “off-center” and interfering with one’s well-being.
What if we could balance or restore our inner chemistry to 40% more inner Peace and 60% more enthusiastic Joy and zest? Think more about this. If someone can feel “all wound up” where too-many-things-that-shouldn’t bothers them, then why can’t there be an inner-chemistry where we could far better be “less-rattled” by whatever comes up, (but not become uncaring or inactive or unresponsive) and also have more zest and smiling Joy (while still being rational). Why not? If an imbalance can mess us up, why cant a better (but Natural) internal mix make us more calm but also more energetically happy?
But—when I go to the Bookstore and scan through some paperbacks on Happiness, no one talks about this. Instead, today its all about:
- Just have friends
- and a job you like
- manage your finances
Those are good things, but what no one is talking about is:
A person could do/have all of those things, and still have a bad “internal body chemistry” and be agitated, easily angered, depressed, overly anxious anyway!! Many people are.
While practicing “mindfulness” can be a healthy first step, too few people are doing it and it doesn’t seem to be enough of a help. We need a better and healthier and natural better body chemistry where we can be less agitated (but not inactive) and yet have energy and feel like smiling more easily (while still being rational and coherent). I’m not a doctor but thats my opinion. Who couldnt use more peace, and more Joy, more often?
