We live in a culture that encourages and rewards busyness. Communications continue via social networks 24/7 so that even after the nine to five grind we are often still picking up emails and scrolling through an endless feed of news updates, comedy memes and assorted infotainment. We’re encouraged to believe that there is real moral value in being purposeful and productive invdividuals with a robust work ethic - so that if you’re an over-caffeinated, stressed-out, besuited and well heeled corporate high-flyer with well-toned abs and a hectic schedule of all-day boardroom meetings and conference calls, resulting in a healthy bank balance, then you are thought to be winning on the capitalist hamster wheel of incessant activity we choose to call life. Spending all day slobbing out on the sofa eating donuts or knocking back white Russians in a dressing gown like the Big Lebowksi, or discovering that your real talent is for making up acronyms while staring out the window stuffing gingernuts in your mouth - such aimlessness is frowned upon and occasions shame and disapproval. We lambast those of us who have no sense of urgency, languid lotus-eaters, and meanwhile the red tops daily publicise disapprobation for benefit claimaints’ sedentary lifestyles.
