Apparently there is a movement in China that advocates to live more freely doing odd jobs, and taking life easier, at a slower pace. Newspapers are already talking about it, so maybe it's gathered some momentum: The low-desire life: why people in China are rejecting high-pressure jobs in favour of ‘lying flat’ What do you think about this? Could it be beneficial for people with hyperacusis and tinnitus to take things easier, live a slower life? I relocated from a big city to a smaller coastal town and it worked for me. I would love to hear the experiences of others.
