From time to time and maybe I’ve posted about it before, the topic of the lifestyle luxury of all we’re doing here has come up. Hotspring had a good post that I wanted to link to. It’s gone as it appears the user she replied to deleted his account and all his threads. Hope he’s still lurking. Building a lifestyle that supports balance is rather challenging in today’s world. Maybe I’m missing some aspect of this because of the added time it takes to maintain balance without a partner. Partner seeking is inherently destabilizing. There are only 168 hours in a week. If substantial time is going to healthy living (food, relationships, sex, sleep, fitness, mindfulness, learning/growth, play, etc.), that leaves less time for everything else. Throw in commutes, kids, busy work at work, technology slavery, etc. and it seems that, for many, balance could be rather hard to obtain. Even among younger people without kids, I’m finding that few have time for the interaction we all need. While I have the time at the moment, that’s worthless if I can’t find others with time. In some world, those with time might be the most desired. Maybe people back away because they know they don’t have that time.
How are others handling the practical side of making and keeping time for everything?
