You can escape the hamster wheel life.

In some places they still do. The hamster wheel doesn’t stop and we don’t have time for more than a cursory glance.

Why should we feel so trapped and stressed out? We are surrounded by technological marvels.
.

I think we feel this way because we’ve lost touch with the traditions, customs, and rituals that people have traditionally based their lives around. Our lives are fast, indeed frantic. We are always on the run, always behind schedule, always chasing the next goal. No wonder we feel stressed out and helpless to achieve our personal goals. Family or personal disasters get our attention.Do your life goals seem to be getting ever further away instead of closer? Have you given up on achieving them altogether? With all the bad economic news and turmoil, do you feel like you’re losing ground across the board? If so, you aren’t alone. It doesn’t take a huge commitment of time, or lots of experimentation either. So do massive disasters like September 11. Just stepping off the wheel once in a while can make a huge difference. And we have access to an almost limitless selection of products and lifestyles. About the only things that can knock us off the hamster wheel for long are major crises.

Until very recently, humans always included these kinds of experiences in their lives. They are tried and true traditions and experiences that you can incorporate into your own life to counteract the negative aspects of our modern way of life. You don’t have skirting board Manufacturers to sell everything you own and abandon modern life either. That is, we don’t have the time or the energy to delve deeply into the meaningful experiences of our lives. With endless interruptions and distractions, we don’t have the time or energy to experience most things deeply or intensely. But all too soon, we’re back on the wheel, running for all we’re worth, with our current events and experiences a blur, and our strongest impressions those left over from the latest disaster. Many, if not most people in the developed countries are feeling much the same. If you can bring some positive intense experiences into your life, and dive deeply into them, you can transform yourself. Our standard of living is beyond that of even the wealthiest rulers only a few generations ago.

We experience life shallowly. As a result, we experience most of life shallowly. If you can find a way to include some of these in your life, you will find yourself happier, more relaxed, yet more successful. It’s like you are trapped in a giant hamster wheel, running, running, running, but not getting anywhere
