Are you pleasure avoidant, rejecting, or denying? Have you ever thought about why?
Here are three questions to help you determine if you have a pleasure disorder.
- Do you avoid taking vacations because you would rather work?
- Do you feel guilty when you take a few moments to relax?
- Do you find you need to be busy all the time?
Many of us have been conditioned to think of pleasure leads to guilt. And that rest and relaxation are for slackers.
I challenge that notion in my latest piece for Thrive Global. I describe how our society is rampant with successful and pleasure avoidant people.
Check out my ideas on how to reverse this dangerous trend or pleasure avoidance. Let me know what you think.
