Too Much Stuff

Too Much Stuff

There is nothing wrong with having ambition, drive, the need for financial security, and lofty aspirations. The "too-muchness of life" might best describe by the below facets.

Too many adverts. too many demands. Too many plans. Too many chances to enhance or better oneself. In excess, everywhere. Too much to consume. Too much to accomplish. far too much to do. Far too much to be. Far too much to learn. Too many options. Too many decisions. Our poor brains are working like little, overloaded computers just trying to make sense of what we humans have created.

Extremes Of Experiences

Extremes Of Experiences

The two extremes feel bad. That is both too much and too little at the same time. We are aware that many individuals go without even the most necessities, which makes them sick and unpleasant and even shortens their lives.

The term "cost of living" is also intriguing. In a society ruled by billionaires, elitist leaders, and avarice with sole profits in mind, there is currently a "cost" of life.

Our health's price in dollars. Burnout's "cost" in money. the "price" of harmful output. We are paying a rather high price for it in more ways than simply our bank balances.

"More" Does Not Make Us Happier

"More" Does Not Make Us Happier

We know that constantly wanting more does not make us happier. But, we need to have enough to start with.

A CEO and founder on LinkedIn writes:

“The rich are isolated, they are less empathetic, they form and maintain fewer meaningful connections, they work longer hours than necessary and spend less time with their loved ones. The more money you have, the more you are separated from the world."

She pays herself less and is happy too so that the company itself and its staff can thrive. She doesn’t seem interested in profiting just for herself and feels chasing money is not a path to fulfilment.

The Cry Of The Earth Mother

The Cry Of The Earth Mother

It's crucial to be mindful. Making a change, realising something, and moving on in the proper direction. Knowing your notion of 'enough'.

In her book, Sherri Mitchell recounts the legend of the cannibal giant's dance. She describes it as a character from our mythology that dwells far into the forest, sleeps throughout, and only awakens to a single particular scream of the earth mother. With that specific cry, the cannibal giant is alerted that people are harming the earth mother quicker than she can recover and are consuming more quickly than she can produce.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
