Lifestlye The Focus on Lifestyle

Have you noticed the explosion of interest in what would be categorised as “Lifestyle” in recent years? The number of magazines, websites, blogs, TV shows, stores, personalities and social media accounts dedicated to ‘Lifestyle’ is ever expanding! It’s focused on the latest trends, the location of the best coffee in town, what I really should do with my bathroom, the latest cosmetic surgery procedure or what obscure part of the world is the next "must see" destination.

Lifestyle is a fairly recent invention, developing over the past 50 years. The issues that Lifestyle sections deal with used to be reserved for the fabulously wealthy but today there is so much disposable wealth and accumulating debt that everyone is into "lifestyle." But why the interest? Shelly Gare, journalist and author has written:

"Lifestyle is what you concentrate on when you're not too sure where life itself is taking you."

In other words, we focus on lifestyle to avoid the more serious questions of life. In the end, your spiritual health and eternal destiny will matter a whole lot more than your clothing or your kitchen.
