Why is this so hard? I am not entirely sure, but it is. We work a lot–that is one point Schor makes. I think about how good it feels when you are a master of your time, like on a Saturday when I finally clean out my refrigerator, go grocery shopping, cook a stew, go on a run, and do an errand I’ve been putting off for weeks. Reclaiming time is both something we must work on at an individual and societal level.
