WHAT KIND OF
LIFESTYLE
ARE YOU LIVING?




With the billions of people living on Earth today, it is inevitable for some to
live their lives differently than others. As a resident here, I find it worth the
time to find out more about how my neighbors and I are living.

Each person has differing priorities. These priorities are driven by a balancing
act of our dreams and our restrictions. As the old saying goes, ďitís good to want
things.Ē

You might say that only the lucky ones reach their full potential and maybe thatís
true. But letís first take a look to see some kinds of lifestyles that are being
lived out there:



Activist Lifestyle:

Campaigning for social or political change


Ascetic Lifestyle:

Severe self-discipline from indulgences for religious reasons


Modern Primitive Lifestyle:

Body modification rituals or practices for rites of passage


Back to the Land:

People of agrarian movements who live completely off the land on a small scale
by themselves or with others



Bibliophilic:

Loving/collecting books


Bohemian:

Unconventional peoples with few permanent ties, adventurers, may have artistic
or literary goals



Clothes Free:

Living in the nude


Communal Living:

Living in a common place and sharing everything


Groupie Lifestyle:

Seeking personal gain through attachment to successful musicians


Hippie Lifestyle:

Living in a subculture, rejecting conventional values


Nomadic:

Living with no permanent residence, moving from place to place


Quirkyalone:

Not opposing but preferring to remain single rather than be part of a couple


Rural Lifestyle:

Living in the country, farming


Simple Living:

Minimizing personal possessions to increase self-sufficiency


Traditional Lifestyle:

Living in small groups, hunting, gathering, simple farming, herding, no strong
political leaders



Now that you have seen the list, try to take a few minutes to see which group(s)
you might fit into. It is important for us all to know where we can fit in.
Firstly, this will help you to gain a sense of self identity. Secondly, it helps
you to be able to live more harmonically with your neighbors by understanding a
little bit more about them. And thirdly, understanding them will further boost
your self identity.

You may have also felt that you donít fit into any of these lifestyles. Or maybe
you felt connected to several of the general lifestyles. I believe this is due to
our living in the age of information, where we are mostly hidden behind screens
and bombarded with information, wanted or unwanted. The advances in technology are
forced onto many, and mostly, it is embraced once there is really no escape. This
can cloud/clutter the essence of your lifestyle. I ask you to dig through that and
then observe the way you are living, aside from what technology does for your
day-to-day life.
