Another very thought-provoking topic 😬 😀
What makes it hard for me is I start to be productive to attain peace… and it works… but in the short term! Gotta then keep up this ‘productivity’ to feel at peace and okay with ourselves. But for me it can feel rather shallow. The real flex… coming back to being with the good old discomfort and finding peace/comfort in that.
As you say productivity isn’t bad in of itself but good to be in touch with what we’re really using it for. My latest saying is ‘I am not a machine’ and it’s a real helpful reminder to myself that I am more than my productivity whatever I may be feeling, thinking at that moment in time.
Would love to hear what’s coming up for others? X
