How much pampering is actually needed?They get into the car, raise the windows and switch ON the AC. They venture out with umbrella even if its mildly sunny. They always order mineral water at restaurant. Slightest of pollution and dust and their masks are on. Even if child is slightly hurt or ill they are not sent to school.
All these instances do raise a question in our mind that "How much pampering is actually needed?". Is over pampering a good thing? Is overprotectiveness more of a bane than boon?
If we observe we will find that poor people who are not fortunate enough to pamper themselves do not fall sick even if they drink tap water, get wet in rain, eat less etc. I do not mean to say that normal middle class or upper class people should also do the same. It is quite understandable that there will be some amount of pampering always as per the standard of living of people. So rich people tend to pamper themselves the most while poor people the least.
There is no harm in pampering and comfortable ourselves to the acceptable limit. But the problem is over pampering. It makes us weak from within and healthwise it reduces our immunity. For example a person used to mineral water will likely to fall ill if he starts taking normal water. A person used to AC environment will get sun stroke more easily compared to others. Another drawback of over pampering is that we get used to it and face hard time without it. Imagine what will happen if a situation arises where we do not have financial capacity to pamper ourselves? We will get drowned in our own dug well.
So pampering is needed sometimes but by all means over pampering is injurious to us.
