Often we encounter the question “what next?” subconsciously and sometimes pops up into our awareness level? which is asked by our mind.
In what situations do we get this question?
After we spent a few minutes in a mood of happiness.
After we spent a few minutes in a mood of sadness.
After completing some task whether it is related to office or personal.
Now which part of our brain is doing this? and mostly it is an autonomous thought that we are not completely aware of but we just subconsciously follow.
However here is the trickier 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 are falling into the zone of laziness.
However why our mind tricks us into postponing a task that usually if we do, does not benefit us?
However, in mind, it looks reasonable.
in hindsight, it looks like our mind most of the time works against us.
However, there must be some evolutionary reason for this.
as per science, it looks like evolution preferred sluggish behavior because this gave our ancestors an advantage with respect to survival, the sluggish behavior helps in the conservation of energy and thus helps in fighting predators, searching for food, hunting the prey, etc. unfortunately in the modern world this can make us less competitive and in pandemic times this become more problematic.
