Power in daily life

Power in daily life helps us to live well   

Being the captain of our day makes us strong but wage workers are so powerless that they get sick. The workplace is killing people and nobody cares.

Health psychological research clarifies that wellbeing precedes success. Living well with good relations and love is the best revenge in a often crazy world . We need to be in charge in our own life, sunshine, love and social support to be healthy.

But conquering this everyday wellbeing has become more difficult.

Bitterfullness is a healthy reaction when you see what is happening. For example: One in five bosses is a psychopath.

Out of 7,272 surveyed U.S. adults, more than half had left their job to get away from their manager,

How to end up in a daily life that provides space for recovery and easy joy outdoors with friends? The power to decide how to spend the day is freedom. If we can go to bed tonight satisfied with the day, then we have suceeded. The "work" as daydesigner consists of living well.


But this is easy to say. People are screwed. The middle class is almost  gone in U.s.a and Europe. The Precariat rise. Being a day designer is a luxury when we do not control our time.

Targeted action, work, can be excellent when it comes from your needs, carried out at your own pace, but how often is wage work such?

The relation between love and prostitution is about the same as between work and wage work.

The act may look the same on the surface but the motivation for the act is very different.

But to be able to say no to wage slavery we need power. And when we are in the precarait we mostly do not have the power to say no.

As a day designer, when we are fortunate to be the captain of our day, we consciously create balance between self-chosen action, reflection and rest. It takes time to establish new good habits but rewards in well-being are felt quickly. Well-being is an effect of having enough opportunities and power to take good care of the day. Being a day designer is less about understanding something new and more about spending time on what we already know is good for us. Today. The purpose is to live well, feel meaning. Well-being is a happy effect of that. That is not easy when we are wage slaves.

Being DD is no wage work but meaningful goal-oriented action, something you can benefit from when you have a day off and feel safe... Most people have lived and will live in systems whose myths about themselves are more or less unreasonable, but acknowledged. Literature and art, even diary writing, is a often constructive way to deal with our suffering, The last 40 years we have been screwed by the neo liberal elite and its believers.

Taking care of the day and relations has been what in practice made me happy, but I had some money and security, a kind of basic income. Without that money and security it would not have been possible. A basic income for everybody would be something.

Living well is the best revenge.

It is a time of confusion, opportunities and spiritual censorship. Many people feel that the situation is very unsustainable, that the old pattern no longer works. Historian Yuval Noah Harari says that the meaning-creating myths we need to believe in having a common base are no longer credible. In anticipation of a credible global story, we seem to turn inwards to find well-being. And what to do when humans no longer are useful for the economy?

Living in balance is necessary to feel good. But our system does not allow people to feel comfortable in peace and quiet.

Free time is a luxury.
