Making Money is Fine But You Also Need Proper Rest

Do you think money is extreme pleasure?


It’s one of those posts which I write seldom but feeling different right now. Actually I met someone in my office when I was about to leave for home at my fixed 1 PM. He is not my friend but I know him for a long time as he is one of our company’s distributors I had appointed for Maharashtra. He was here for a meeting with our marketing director. I was not much surprised the way he behaved because he has earned lots of monies through his multiple business ventures during last decade or so. So, have some personal moments for yourself where money has no entry.


What I felt different in him that he was not responding normally but looked like too disturbed while answering my questions. His mood was fluctuating every moment and his phone rang maybe every 30 seconds or so which was adding to his troubles. I could judge from his body language that he was totally upset as he was not constant in his responses.


He reminded me of Neal Elgar Miller, an American experimental psychologist who worked on experimenting with people’s ideas on behavior in real life situations. He thought the biggest problem of people today was that they have no time. He stressed upon the need of proper rest for keeping ourselves prepared for the next project.


Being rich is fine but think about your mental peace

There is no doubt in the fact that as much a person becomes richer he loses his liveliness in the process. The biggest problem of the man is that he has no time for himself. The man has achieved lots of physical property but has lost mental freedom. If we do not have time for rest which, is the key of recharging our brain and body then we shall not be able to do anything in a proper way.


We have our own reasons to speak in favor or against the present day time-management methods but if we trust Narayna Murthy the founder of Infosys, the time-management is important but not at the cost of personal and family life of a person. If you’re unable to feel relaxed during your work or feel too stressed then you should recheck your work schedule. Rest should be in the list of priorities of your life along with work.


It’s a scientific proven fact that when we concentrate too much on outer world in search of new ways of earning, looking for new ways of entertainment using gadgets or concentrate too hard on artificial happiness. In this process your mind gets tired and then only thing that can relieve you should stop all your money related activities. Better stop thinking about everything because your system needs rest.


Thinking too much about outer activities giving no time to your mental piece will tire you to a mental to a point of no recovery. You could manage to save yourself from reaching to that stage only if you could control by putting a total shut down on all your activities once in awhile. Just give yourself a break from outer world and live with your own self and your loved ones.
