Less of this, more of that

the brief guide

less TV, more reading
less shopping, more outdoors
less clutter, more space
less rush, more slowness
less consuming, more creating
less junk, more real food
less busywork, more impact
less driving, more walking
less noise, more solitude
less focus on the future, more on the present
less work, more play
less worry, more smiles

I usually find stuff like this to be cringeworthy. ‘Less worry, more smiles’ is the kind of thing I’d expect to see on a fridge magnet at the house of someone who believes it to be a profound message.

Sometimes it’s good to find a list like this though, and actually give the suggestions some thought. I’d have to agree, for example, that I should eat less junk – it’s obvious, but I don’t ever make a serious effort to eat better.

Food for thought.
