People with less pleasure time tend to consume more intensely. They are reliant on high-speed travel, meal deliveries, last-minute, impulsive purchases, retail therapy. The less time you have, the more you consume. More time also allows us to become more self-sufficient: repairing jeans, growing some food, helping out. More time does not necessarily lead to a more sustainable lifestyle. But without time, we are hardly able to live sustainably. A 40+ hour workweek makes sustainable living almost impossible. If we want a sustainable future, cutting down on labor work will be a key requirement.
