Have you ever stopped to wonder if the conveniences of modern life actually serve us well?

In a world where we sit more than we stand, where groceries can be delivered to our doorstep, and where lawns are mowed while seated, we’ve become a society that has to remind ourselves to move. This week I talk about desk jobs, Amish pedometers, and those waistlines of the 1950s. I also ask some uncomfortable questions, which I’m not sure we’re completely ready to answer as a society.

By the end of this episode, you might question the true cost of convenience and whether the time we’ve “saved” has genuinely enriched our lives. I don’t claim to have all the answers, but I hope this episode can ignite a conversation that’s worth having.
