“A brief respite from modern life”

chinese-millenial-hermits

This is a short video (in Chinese with English subtitles) about a group of young Chinese people who have chosen to live a simple life up in the mountains.

“By the time you get to school, life becomes a repetition of (going from) point A to point B. When you graduate and get a job the repetition continues.”

I think there are ways to break out of your rut without running for the hills, but it’s a good reminder that when we do feel stuck in a rut, we should do something about it. To find something that helps you put your “mind is resting and your heart is at peace.”

The part about them having to go to the top of the mountain to get a signal in order to send text messages was pretty funny. If it were harder for us to use our phones, we might appreciate them more.
