Joy per unit of time

Watching TV, consuming content, small talk: Easy, low-effort. Pleasurable.

Connecting, growing, learning: Activities that take effort and intention. Joyful.

More pleasure per unit of time make me depressed.
More joy per unit of time improves my general quality of life.

Less passive consumption. More active being.

This is a lesson I will relearn over and over.
