“I am genetically prone to wide mood swing and frequent depressive phases…” How convenient

“I am genetically prone to wide mood swing and frequent depressive phases…” How convenient

I know people who are smart enough to quickly discover the shaky premises in their passions, and thus, they are unable to sustain a passion for long enough to bear fruits.  They invent an ingenious excuse like: “I am genetically prone to periodic mood swing and depressive phases”, and they promote their physical/mental condition.

Soon, they start deeply believing their created excuse: They cannot function normal unless they exhume or discover a temporary passion to drive their days…In few instances, they participate in long protracted benevolent projects and carry the project through, only to relapse to the “depressive mood” after the project is over:  The tedious and demanding well-done project was sort of compensation for having dropped out in so many programs and projects…They are seeking a new passions…another round of depressive phases…

Getting driven by a passion without adequate programmed constraints will inevitably lead to insanity and frequent depression moods and relapses: The body needs a break and the mind needs to relax on daily achievement tasks programs.

The best remedy to getting back on track is to start identifying their problems, not just the physical consequences of how they feel, but what is their driving passions and how to sustain them.  The remedy is to adopting a “daily achievement program”?

This daily program is meant to circumvent unnecessary body aches and pains and mental stability to sustain the pressures of a driving passion. Here is a sample of scheduled tasks and jobs that are representative of this program:

One: You have a blog and you decide to schedule the necessary time to post an article a day.  I have a large backlog of drafts, but I try my best to restrict publishing a single post so that I may focus on more reading and allocating more time for reading.  Frankly, if you fail to allocate twice more time to reading than writing then, most probably your posts are not credible as representative of your background knowledge and will rarely show personal emotion and feelings…

Two: After I wake up, I allocate 45 minutes to light physical exercises to stretching all the joints, in standing, pronation, and supination positions.  I use light weights (3 kg in each hand) in one of the four sessions.  The idea is to wake up to consciousness big time: This is a new day, I’ll have to deal with this day, I will own this day and schedule my daily achievement program, I will own my health by preparing my body from not suffering asymmetrical sudden movements…

Three: In this very cold month, as mother was unable to wash dishes, I scheduled an hour at night, right after I had my late supper, to do dishes…and I enjoyed this relaxing hour and the feeling that mother will be greatly pleased in the morning to finding a clean sink, kitchen, and mopped kitchen floor…

Four:  I decided to walk daily to the nearby private library (a mile away), rain or shine, and work for four hours, reading, typing, publishing posts, and selecting books for borrowing…

You don’t need to set the alarm clock for your scheduled tasks:  The jobs constitute broad timetable with reasonable time allocated to achieving each task with conviction, pleasure, and a relaxed mood.  You may schedule eight tasks that a day requires to performing daily chores and other necessary tasks.

You’ll always enjoy 13 hours of waking period to manage your program to fruition.  Even the early physical set of exercises can be delayed a bit to tend to emerging priority tasks, as long as the tasks do not require hard physical exertions.

It is not the passion that will keep you alert and positive: It is the conviction that a mountain can be displaced when we nibble at it daily.  It is the habit of daily achievement program that will take the relay of hard willful decision.  Habit is a light chain that performs miracle, though the hardest to relinquish.

Mind you that I am not questioning the serious mental illnesses.  What distraught me is this statement: “We find nothing physically wrong with him, but this person is suicidal…” If a person is handicapped mentally, so is his entire well-being.  The body and mind are one entity: One part is handicapped the entire system is handicapped to survive properly. Medicines applied to the functioning of the brain affect the entire body: Tight and multiple interactions are at play…

Expand your mind, array of passions, and opportunities before setting on the habit path…Conquer your unreasonable and untested passion that can destroy your daily joy for living a good and sustainable life.  Select the passions with habit chains that are easier to break:  So much to investigate and so many things to feel curious about in a one single shot of a lifespan…
