This is because our survival throughout evolution has been based on repeated effort even in the face of adversity. Hence, working on a meaningful goal is a great way to feel good about ourselves. 


The issue is that we can feel good with the flick of a match (smoking), pop of a pill (medication or narcotics), a mouthful of food we haven’t had to prepare or gather (takeaway, chocolate etc).
