This past week I was at a small camping festival in rural Minnesota. The event featured several speakers throughout the week, including myself. I did two workshops. One was on beer and one was on tiny houses, two of my favorite subjects.
In my tiny house workshop I mentioned my problem with the way our culture has glorified the act of being busy. We aren’t socially allowed to have “too much time on our hands” or else we are judged by our peers or our community. I talked about how disturbing I find this trend and how slowing our lives down can create more satisfaction and peacefulness in our lives.
