Are You a Victim to Hedonistic Adaptation ?

Well, in oversimplified terms, it’s a phenomenon in which people want ‘more’ to maintain their happiness levels. Hedonistic Adaptation equates acquisition with satisfaction.

 

I remember the “Ahaa……” feeling I got when I looked at my new MacBook! I thought this feeling will last a lifetime. Ironically, it quickly faded away. To be happy, I soon wanted the new Apple iphone. (something more).

 

I guess all of us have gone through similar experiences. It’s true for our
– marriage day
– the birth of our child
– holidays
– new phone
– new car
– new furniture
– new clothes
– new shoes
– rewards and awards
– news coverage
– power etc.

 

 

So, in order to recapture the “Ahaa…..” feeling, we feel the need for ‘more’. The cycle is addictive. We are never satisfied. We can’t be. That’s how we are made. However, there may be a possible solution that helps you deal with the need for ‘Ahaa’.

 

Find genuine ways to feel good about yourself. To feel good about yourself, GO and help YOURSELF. Knowing you have genuinely done something worthwhile to yourself, lifts you and makes you feel “Ahaa……”.

 

– Meditating
– Exercising
– Learning
– Forgiving
– Reading
– Hobbying
– Stepping out of comfort zones etc.

 

…are all ways by which you feel good about yourself.

 

This too is a cycle that’s addictive. But this is an addiction in a beautiful way.

 

With love, prayers, and exceptional wishes,

    Since last 5 years I have started developing a Passive income source and trust me with every passive income source Iam able to pay for all my hobbies and bucket list which gives me that Aaah feeling … eg. I did sky diving , I did scuba diving.
