Go bananas for what makes you happy. I was in a rut the last few weeks during my midterms (still a little bit right now). When you put everything down to do things that don’t make you happy, (cough cough cough- organic chemistry) you can get in a rut. I put everything down to focus on midterms and upcoming exams but instead of being productive, I found myself more unmotivated and tired. If you ever did yoga, the instructors always say to do what your body craves. I know enough about myself that when I get upset, art is my therapy. And here we are. Credits to my housemate’s bananas which she should eat faster because they are browning!
I am reading a book called The Happiness Advantage by Shawn Achor. He emphasizes that happiness is the input for the function of success. If you put your happiness above everything, you will be more productive and likely more successful. Consider this idea the next time you feel unmotivated or unhappy. Draw some bananas, or whatever makes you go bananas.
Later, alligator. 🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌
