We are raised and taught that we need to do something constantly. This belief stems from modern consumer society. We surrender to it only if our body and feelings cannot influence our thoughts, decisions, and actions.
The disconnection in the body leads to reflection and altering how our consciousness works to increase its speed. The body is unable to follow because it is subordinate to the actual state of everything and is committed to the synchronization of life processes. Our consciousness has a small influence on how the body works since most of its vital processes are automated. However, we can use the little amount of influence the consciousness has to change some of the body's functioning. This is especially important when adapting to changes in our environment and surroundings.
A too-large inconsistency between the consciousness and the body will harm us in the long-term: it leads to inefficiency, injury, and illness.
