People are primed and ready for behavioral activation

Ok. I’m going to write a sentence and it will be pure academic psychology. And, then it won’t make any sense. And, all will be good. Life is what you make of it. Words have different meanings to different ears. But consensus can sometimes be achieved if we wish and strive for it. Now, that was psychological what not.

People are primed and ready for behavioral activation. Got it? Sure. On a global consciousness scale, we are itching for action. We’ve had two years of inaction, static, and inertia. Throw in some ennui as well. It’s as if we were waiting for a codeword to activate something within us. It’s like were or are sleeper agents.

All I know, is that I find myself googling how to make a molotov cocktail. And, I want to go cheer some more underdogs. Afterall, the Superbowl lead up was in some ways about ferocious battles that came down to to last second between a few underdogs. But that is really a major digression. I’m not too sure how I landed there. Back to being primed for behavioral activation.

You have to be ready and willing. You have to some sense of restlessness. I think we are there.

  1. Since I live mostly in a chair by a window, I hadn’t thought about people being primed for activation, but they are. They’ve been using that angst to proclaim their theories about vaccines and to refuse masks – they look so petty next to the news coming out of the Ukraine.
    Orders of magnitude petty and self-centered.
