|You appreciate clothes more when you are standing nude in the cold.|
The longer you go without something, or the less you have of anything, the more you appreciate whatever it is.
The best meals happen when you haven't eaten for a good long while and you are truly hungry. It is unbelievable how eating maple baked beans right out of the can while ripping apart a whole wheat bun can feel like a feast fit for any adventure.
There have been various times that Linda and I have not showered for extended periods. Tree planting, backpacking, and living out of a vehicle are all pursuits in which showers are sacrificed in order to attain something else of importance other than being clean and socially acceptable.
If a person showered 3 times a day, how much is each shower enjoyed? Frequency dulls the feedback, which is why less is actually more.
If you want to appreciate life, do less, have less, consume less.
