A Few Tips, Tricks And Hacks That Will Make Your Life A Whole Lot Easier

July 13, 2017 | No Comments » | Topics: Useful |

Think of every aspect of your being as a collection of muscles. The more you use them, the stronger they become.

Even when we’re doing nothing, we’re doing something. Even when you’re not working out, you’re working out.

If I do nothing all day, over time, I’ll get really good at doing nothing every day. If I eat 3 square meals a day, by the following month you’d expect me to be pretty decent at it. If I answer that call from my mum which I always ignore because it makes me feel anxious, and practice taking the plunge and just click ‘accept’ automatically whenever she calls, by next year I’d expect to be more able to handle difficult calls of any kind.

Whatever you do, but more importantly, whatever you’re NOT doing, becomes a muscle, which over time gets stronger. Be aware of what you’re getting good at, especially when it feels as though you’re not actually doing anything.

Fascinating Photos Collected From History

Shell shocked soldier (bottom left) in a trench during the Battle of Flers-Courcelette during the Somme Offensive. 1916

Shell shocked soldier in a trench during the Battle of Flers-Courcelette during the Somme Offensive in September 1916. His eyes express the madness of the war. The soldier looks like he has gone insane from what he has seen. In that moment in time everything he’s been raised to work within, the social constructs which make up every part of his life just exploded and shattered to nothing, and he’s lying there, slumped in a trench, afraid for his life, hearing and seeing death around him, his entire psyche broken. Even more haunting when you think that people didn’t smile for the pictures back then.

The circumstances of the First World War pushed hundreds of thousands of men beyond the limits of human endurance. They faced weapons that denied any chance for heroism or courage or even military skill because the artillery weapons that caused 60 percent of all casualties were miles away from the battlefield.

The term “shell shock” was coined by the soldiers themselves. Symptoms included fatigue, tremor, confusion, nightmares and impaired sight and hearing, an inability to reason, hysterical paralysis, a dazed thousand-yard stare is also typical. It was often diagnosed when a soldier was unable to function and no obvious cause could be identified. “Simply put, after even the most obedient soldier had enough shells rain down on him, without any means of fighting back, he often lost all self-control”.

While the term shell shock is no longer used in either medical or military discourse, it has entered into popular imagination and memory, and is often identified as the signature injury of the war. Shell shock would later be called “war neurosis”. It’s similar to but not the same thing as PTSD. Like in the case of PTSD, mental stress leads to dramatic physical difficulties.

Some men suffering from shell shock were put on trial, and even executed, for military crimes including desertion and cowardice. While it was recognized that the stresses of war could cause men to break down, a lasting episode was likely to be seen as symptomatic of an underlying lack of character. For instance, in his testimony to the post-war Royal Commission examining shell-shock, Lord Gort said that shell-shock was a weakness and was not found in “good” units.

The Daily Man-Up

I hear them.

That weak voice that we all have but I seem to have on steroids mumbles a reason to quit. It offers a reason to go slower, to rest, to explain why I’m not going at a pace that I could be going at.

It sounds logical. It sounds like it’s thinking about my welfare and happiness.

But it isn’t.

It’s a voice that leads men down dark paths of dependence. It’s a voice that prevents us from being happy and being valuable to our fellow man. It’s a voice that the vast majority of people on this planet listen to, and it’s one that makes happiness impossible.

It’s this same voice that makes it sound reasonable to sleep in. The very same voice convinces you that it’s a good idea to cheat on your lady. It whispers in your ear that you don’t need to stand by her when she gets pregnant. It shows you an easier path in life, a path that it claims will lead you to happiness, ease.

This voice also holds you back when you want to attack a goal, aim just a bit higher, or do something you’re afraid to do. It justifies not working out. It gives you a reason not to help your fellow man.

This voice is cancer.

It grabs on to the host and degrades its strength without relent.
