Is life complicated? I think it is now more complicated than at any time in history. A hundred years ago, cars were a rarity. Today, we have self driving cars. We focus on what we want and not what we need to live a reasonably good life. We strive for more of everything.
We are motivated, influenced, pressured, and shamed into doing things and into buying things. We do not do what our heart wants; we do what is expected.
How do we keep sane in this kind of environment. We find coping tools. Exercise, team sports, and meditation all help us cope.
