Living The Same Life

Imagining a life where things keep getting repeated sounds unbearable. However, Nietzsche takes it a challenge.

His worldview is that things have to be dealt with in a way that you would if they kept on happening again and again. If we are to do the same thing for eternity, it might as well be the right thing.

Key Ideas

First-Hand Knowledge

The subconscious writer

We sometimes have to get out of our own way.
Too much conscious thinking about anything will become a source of stress; it makes us anxious and over-cautious as the fear piles up.

Get into daily rituals

Use them to support your body, your emotions, and your intellect.
For this to happen, make sure you:

  • sleep well
  • eat nutritiously and intentionally
  • exercise
  • read and find intellectual stimulation
  • connect with others
  • do things that excite you and give life meaning
  • live your values.

It helps you in the process of developing the right mindset of a writer.
Journaling makes you reflect on your life, imagine future possibilities, and you get to play with words because this is also a writing exercise.
