We have too much physical stuff, too much emotional stuff, too much junk to eat, not enough exercise or sleep or meaningful connections with people.
Society values and promotes
- being busy
- being stressed
- being underslept
- fast food
- large portions
- cheap everything
- convenient (to accommodate busy)
- reactive medicine over preventative
- pills over natural
- social isolation
But we are society. It’s not an “other” thing. It is us.
We can push back. We can vote with our dollars (and with our votes). We can choose to swim upstream. We can choose what we buy and what we eat and how we spend time and with whom we spend time. We can choose what we say yes to and what we reject.
Our current path is not sustainable.
