Too little psychological stimulation
and we are bored, listless, uninterested, no longer fascinated by life.
Too much psychological stimulation
and we are stressed, “slammed” we say,
unable to be present in the moment, fragmented and distressed.
In contrast optimal stimulation
keeps us in the moment, fascinated by what unfolds before us,
witnessing the great kaleidoscope of life’s unpredictability.
How do you monitor your level of stimulation?
Or do you fail to monitor and only recognize it once you fall into the arms of boredom
or are swirling in the vortex of overstimulation?
