I think

i think you misunderstand me. I don't mean we should not think about the future at all, or fail to plan our lives at all. The problem is that people today spend the majority of the time outside their own body planning and worrying about the future. There has been a great deal of research about this recently shedding light on the negative health repercussions. It's important to take time to experience what is real rather than purely projections. I recommend looking into mindfulness meditation and similar therapies. And I don't mean this in any sort of eastern religion sort of way, although there is plenty of it in that. This is a scientifically established approach to living a more fulfilling, peaceful, happy, and healthy life.
