How much time do you have to spend on hobbies? Here in Norway, we have more time to spend on them With the work mentality being different than what it is in American culture. I remember when my Sociology professor introduced me to a now more meaningful phrase:
Work to live, not live to work.
Think about this for a moment. You were not born to just do a job and og home just to do it everyday of Your life until you die. Americans think the reverse of this phrase and often get priorities mixed up. What is most important to you? Is work more important than living to the fullest?
This is why Norwegians make the most of thier lives With having vacations, koselig homes, time With friends and Family, and time for hobbies. My own personal hobbies include art, writing, Reading and crocheting. Hubby and I plan on maybe going to Spain, Sweden or The Netherlands next year.
What do you think of the two differences? Which seems to be a more pleasant way to live?
