The obvious mismatch

What are the days when I am the happiest?

I am happiest when I converse with a bunch of friends, go on a long hike, cook a meal for the family, run a marathon, finish a difficult project or overcome a personal challenge.

What do I do with most of my leisure?

I watch television, stream Netflix, play computer games, binge Youtube, scroll down social media, spectate sport or go shopping.

We wage a constant battle to protect our well-being from industrial capitalism that lures us into mindless consumption. Yet, if you see this rift clearly, can you take charge and make amends?
