One reason we fail to be motivated to do self-help exercises and other things which are good for us is that they are delivered one dimensionally: words only. Not words painting an image or words forming a story but functional naked words moving through white clean spaces and smelling of disinfectant. Our instinct is to get away because self-help articles often bring us to the crevices in our mind reserved for hospitals and dental practices.
Instead we prefer youTube videos of bathing birds and babies. If you want to learn about savouring look no further. If you want to learn about appreciation look not further. We don’t have to bring positive psychology to the world: we have to discover it within our world.
