無意識的習慣

「醫藥無法改變我們動作裡的有害習慣。在健身房裡練舉重無法教我們如何善巧地保持我們直立的體態。跑馬拉松無法讓我們避免一整天在桌子前的不良坐姿。醫藥無法彌補軟骨和關節數十年來承受過度壓力的所受到的損傷。心理治療無法調整我們焦慮的姿勢和拱起的肩背。昂貴的人體工學椅無法教我們如保持平衡坐好。在所費不貲的 spa 裡享受按摩與低脂美食、量身打造的健身課程也無法教我們如何善巧地運用我們的運動系統。

我們以為我們的意識、心靈有無窮的潛力,然而,因為受限於我們無意識的習慣,我們根本沒有那麼多自己誤以為自己擁有的選擇。」 – Missy Vineyard

“But medication cannot change the harmful habits that accompany our actions. Lifting weights at the gym does not teach us to skillfully maintain our upright poise. Running a marathon does not prevent us from sitting in a heap all day at our desk. Medications cannot undo the wear and tear of decades of excess pressure on cartilage and joints. Psychotherapy will not fix our anxious gestures and hunching shoulders. Expensive, orthopedically designed desk chairs do not teach us to sit in balance. An Expensive week at the spa filled with massages, a low-fat diet, and a tail-made exercise regimen does not teach us to use our locomotor system skillfully.

We pride ourselves on the vast potential of our conscious mind, yet due to our unconsciously learned habits most of us have far less choice than we believe” – Missy Vineyard
