Hedonism can be defined as the pursuit of pleasure. This is what Ibiza is all about: the beauty of the jagged coastline, the lustrous party scene, the magnetic draw of happy people. Now that it’s 2019, we are moving away from the outdated image of hedonism as a devils game. In the right doses, pleasure makes the world go around and people are accepting it. We are taught more and more to do things for ourselves, to make the most of the moment and to create the life that you want, all from scratch.
This is what really happens when you have a head full of hedonism…
A huge part of the pursuit of happiness is to be unapologetically you.
If your head really is beautifully full of hedonism, the only dimension that you exist in is the moment. Essentially, what more do we have? Think about it.
The past and the future exist only inside your head, as figments of your own imagination. When you emerge at the realisation that the moment is all you really have, you will lead a much more intensively surreal life.
Are you one of those people who rushes through their whole day, focused on externalities more than you’re focused on yourself? Even for success in life it is important to let your screws loose just a bit. Click here to read why.
The hours, days and years you spend invested in things other than yourself, make it totally reasonable to book a flight to Ibiza and experience pure enjoyment. Even if it’s only for a weekend.
Life in the twenty-first century can feel like you’re sitting on a bicycle in the fast lane of the highway. It is far too easy to be left behind by the blurred monotony of everyday routine.
Pleasure is controlled by hormones and nerve-endings: all very real physiological mechanisms that function through your own vitalism. Therefore the pursuit of pleasure will lead you down a path where each day you spring out of bed with bags of energy to expel into the world around you.
Do things that you never would normally do. Stay up all night. Swim naked. Laugh until you feel a six-pack emerging.
I have a little experiment for you: everytime you want to say no, say yes instead. If someone asks you “Are you okay?” or “I have spare tickets for this Coldplay concert, want to come with me?” or “Have you got time for a quick drink after work?”, dont think. Just say yes.
I don’t care whether you really aren’t okay because your goldfish just died; whether you really hate Coldplay; whether you can’t even really drink because, well, you’ve missed your period. (have a smoothie!)
Just say yes and see what happens. It all comes down to seeing how much you are capable of when you give yourself the chance! Our lives are often limited by imaginary “boundaries”. By saying yes more, you automatically create a more interesting life for yourself with an array of new experiences.
No more words needed.
