Life lived within a social paradigm of kindness would be a gentler life.
Currently, in the United States a forty hour work week is considered standard. What would life look like if, in our new paradigm of kindness, we adopted a shorter work week? Let’s say six hours a day five days a week.
What could a person do with two extra hours per day?
- clean the garage
- visit someone in person…like Grandma and Grandpa or Mom and Dad or your crazy uncle
- make a new friend
- learn a new language
- play with the dog
- try a new recipe
- play a musical instrument
I’d like us to consider for a moment how nice it would be to have this kind of freedom.
