Roman Krznaric

It can be hard to master the modern art of living. However, as we learn more about how our ancestors lived, we can return to some helpful practices and use them, such as rethinking romantic paradigms, challenging ourselves and our beliefs, getting back in touch with nature, embracing our inner creativity, only spending money on what we really need and confronting taboos associated with death. In the words of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, “He who cannot draw on three thousand years of history is living from hand to mouth.” Resist the social tide. Better living examples in these bites all share one thing: it requires us to challenge prevailing conventions. By scrutinizing our perceptions and stepping away from conventions, we can learn to create a way of living that is right for us.
