The modern lifestyle seems to be characterized by busyness and noise. We get so lost in all of our busyness that we forget about sanity and well-being. It is so sad, because we might even say that sanity is not important, it is essential. As a society, we have bought into the misunderstanding that sanity is an option. We believe we can choose whether we want to invest in our health and well-being or watch the news and hurry off to work. Unfortunately, this misunderstanding has disastrous consequences.
