Psychology is or should be the science of personality.

Personality

Personality. etymonline.com. vocabulary.com.

Your drives of life are your personality.
The thoughts your body makes.
The feelings your body makes.
The deeds your body does.

Feeling

Feelings are the result of a certain activity of cells.
There is no feeling without corresponding activity of cells.

The kind of feelings are largely determined by the judgement of the situation of and by groups of cells.

Fullness

Fullness. etymonline.com. vocabulary.com.

Fullness as the opposite of inner emptyness.

Fullness is the feeling of drives.

Being full of joy.
Being full of drive to do something.

Unfortunately it is also possible to be full of pain or full of fear or full of panic.

Drives of life

The world is driven by itself.
By physical forces by what is.

There is no free will.

Drives determine thoughts and feelings and deeds.

Biology of Belief - by Bruce Lipton (full documentary) (2005) (2012-04-16).

Positive fantasy of the future and desire for it and work for it and aggression for it.

Good life and good levels of testosterone are related.

Work is driven.
Life is driven.
Life is not a hassle.

The Science of Willpower: Kelly McGonigal at TEDxBayArea (2012-05-18).

Good life requires good drives.

There are physical limitations.
E.g. the human body with the typical limitations.

There are psychological limitations:
The world has created self-modifying intelligence.
E.g. animals including humans.

All pleasant thoughts and feelings and deeds are caused by a certain activity (of the nervous system) that can become automatic (new normal) by repetition.

All unpleasant thoughts and feelings and deeds are caused by a certain activity (of the nervous system) that can be reduced or stopped (new normal).

Feelings are obviously important.

The subconscious judgements that lead to good feelings and bad feelings are not necessarily correct or useful.
One can have good feelings while doing badly. E.g. bad food, bad activities.
One can have bad feelings while doing well. E.g. healthy food, good activities.

My recommendations for good life.

Change of drives

Worries and distress (unpleasant stress) are the begin of drives of misery.
Little or no worries is the begin of good life.
I have experienced and encountered countless times that drives of misery are self-made by self-made distress.
Acceptance and calm and relaxation instead of distress and drives of misery.

Change requires change.

Change requires acceptance of change.

Change requires death of what is.

Change is death of what was.

Much can change if one allows change.

Much can change if one allows change of judgements and expectations and habits.

Much can change if one allows change of thoughts and feelings and deeds.

Change of drives can be easy and quick or difficult and long because the change is profound and affects your conscious and unconscious personality and perception and judgement of everything.

One way is to change or switch the personality by rational intention. This might require a prior experience with the different personality.

Another way are changes enforced by the environment.

Common drives of distress and misery:
Related:
Empathy or sympathy can create drives of distress and misery.

Drives of misery are typically related to harmful aggression and distress instead of beneficial benevolence and acceptance for you and others.

Drives of misery are typically related to self-imposed MUST BE or MUST HAVE or MUST DO or MUST NOT BE or MUST NOT HAVE or MUST NOT DO constraints.

Drives of misery are typically activated when:
Drives of misery are the result of a certain activity of cells.
There is no drive of misery without corresponding activity of cells.

The solution is to calm and eventually to stop drives of misery.

E.g. by changing the judgement that activates the drives of misery.
Unpleasant thoughts and feelings are temporary.
Do not repeat them willingly.

Know the reason why you have certain pleasant or unpleasant feelings.
Most likely it is very easy to know.

Avoid situations that lead to unpleasant feelings.
Change your situation and your judgement of your situation.

Do or try to do what is beneficial or can be beneficial.

Change is always possible.
One small step after another.

In extreme states like anger or panic or depression, the intelligence and ability to recognize what is true and good and possible is greatly reduced.
In these extreme cases, try to remain calm and to not worry until the brain is again in a more relaxed and intelligent state.

Little or no worries is the begin of good life.
I have experienced and encountered countless times that drives of misery are self-made by self-made distress.
Acceptance and calm and relaxation instead of distress and drives of misery.

I think the idea of laziness is misleading.
I think the idea of delayed gratification is misleading.
While the brain can fantasize about the future, everything is now in the present.

There is no free will.

BRUCE LIPTON - BIOLOGY OF BELIEF - Part 1/2 | London Real (2017-09-10).
Procrastination is a habit of certain thoughts and feelings and deeds.

I believe that procrastination is caused by distress (unpleasant stress).
Notably distress caused by fear.
Fear instead of motivation and determination and enjoyment.
Fear that urges to escape work and the work environment and probably other important real-life activities like social activities.
Instead of enjoying these activities in some way.
Fear of future frustrations like procrastination or failures or other reasons that prevent success or at least wellbeing in the future.
Fear that prevents a strong belief in pleasant progress and success.
Fear that prevents motivation and tenacity in case of resistance or failure.
Fear that prevents beneficial work to be perceived as easy and as motivating as good games.

Always remove self-made limitations. Never try to overcome self-made limitations.

Therefore:
  1. Relax to end distress and drives of misery.
    Have a pleasant relation with work for your benefit.
  2. Know what you like.
    Know what you want.
    Know what to do.
    The discrepancy between what you want and what you have and what you can do can lead to distress and drives of misery.
    Change is required for a good life.
  3. Think about work and the benefit of work for you.
    Think about work and nothing else until you do the work.
    Continue thinking for work and nothing else.
  4. Positive fantasy of the future and desire for it and work for it and aggression for it.
    Instead of fear and frustration and escape from life and work.
    Good life and good levels of testosterone are related.

It might be necessary to end the habit of and the craving for stress (hormones) including distress (unpleasant stress).
Absence of distress does not necessarily mean boredom.
Work can be stressful and demanding.
Work should never be done in distress.

Distress (unpleasant stress) and drives of misery like anger or fear can be useful to initiate change.
But distress and drives of misery like anger or fear are no solution for minutes or hours or days or weeks or months or years or life.
Always remove self-made limitations. Never try to overcome self-made limitations.
Do not try to overcome procrastination with distress and drives of misery like anger or fear.

Depression

It seems to me that many persons with depression (www.reddit.com/r/depression) are dissatisfied and have active drives of misery.

I have experienced and encountered countless times that drives of misery are self-made by self-made distress.
Acceptance and calm and relaxation instead of distress and drives of misery.

Drives of misery are typically related to self-imposed MUST BE or MUST HAVE or MUST DO or MUST NOT BE or MUST NOT HAVE or MUST NOT DO constraints.

There is no "normal to be" that is good enough or not.
There is no "normal to have" that is good enough or not.
There is no "normal to do" that is good enough or not.

Depression can be experienced in different ways (different thoughts, different feelings).
Fear and panic can also be experienced in different ways.

Depression might be like procrastination.

Much can change. For better or worse.

Suicide as death of your body is not a good way to change the drives of misery.
An attempt of suicide will make your constraints worse with over 90% probability.

How to sleep

Allow yourself a pleasant calm time. Pleasant calm peace and freedom.
Time and thoughts for you and not the rest of the world.
No work.
No worry.
No hurry.

Relaxed pleasant thoughts and feelings and deeds.
No matter what happened or is happening.
Let go into pleasant fantasy until you sleep.

Or maybe pause your fantasy and inner voice until you sleep.

Games

The human mind lives always in a virtual reality.
Nobody and nothing has the ability to know and to understand all objective facts of reality.
Furthermore the current personality is a personal part of the personal reality.

All games affect the personality of the player.

Most successful games involve stressful competitive gameplay involving win and loss and fight or fight-and-run behavior.

Most successful games can be stress and anger inducing by (bad) design in addition to the general gameplay.

Most successful games can be stress and anger inducing by bad relations with other players.
