The problem with freedom is that we are, well, free to do whatever we like.
There is no problem with this when we are children. While we are free from a lot of responsibility as children, we are also quite restricted in how we can spend our time.
The inevitible boredom of being restricted gives way to invented games, lying on the ground staring at clouds and provoking our older siblings.
As we become adults, those restrictions change. We gain responsibilities such as bills, jobs and owning stuff but we also become free to access a world of passive, distracting activities.
Suddenly we have so much freedom, so much choice, that it becomes overwhelming. Instead of spending our time creating and inventing things to stimulate ourselves like we did as children, we can simply press a button and be stimulated.
So what do we do? How does one get back a bit of that freedom and creativity of our childhood?
The solution is to choose less freedom. Impose your own boundaries. Say no to more things.
Live a life with less so that you can live more of life.
