What next

What next? analyze the boredom problem

“What next?” often comes to mind subconsciously and sometimes pops into our awareness.

Our minds ask us this question.

In what situations do we get this question?

After we spent a few minutes in happiness.

After we spent a few minutes in sadness.

Having completed a job or personal task.

Now which part of our brain is doing this? and mostly it is an autonomous thought that we are not completely aware of but subconsciously follow.

However here is the tricky part, some other part of the mind tries to control our behavior by motivating us to postpone the next important task unless it is some very important task related to our emotions or money or health, and if we oblige this then we fall into the zone of laziness.

However, why does our mind trick us into postponing a task that does not benefit us?

However, if you think about it, it looks reasonable.

Our minds tend to work against us most of the time, in retrospect.

However, there must be some evolutionary reason for this.

As per science, evolution preferred sluggish behavior because it gave our ancestors an advantage in survival. The sluggish behavior helps in energy conservation and thus helps in fighting predators, searching for food, hunting prey, etc. Unfortunately, in the modern world, this can make us less competitive and in pandemic times this becomes more problematic.
