The complete blueprint on how to optimise your daily activities for lasting well-being and personal growth.

Despite the brittle optimism proclaimed by advertising, and not infrequently through state media, the defining mood of the modern era has become one of atomisation and disappointment.

This is not just my opinion—it’s as near a fact as such things can be.

A recent report from the Lancet found that global rates of anxiety and depression had rocketed by nearly a third in 2020 alone—the largest increase ever recorded. To be clear that’s an extra 53.2 million cases of depression and about 76.2 million of anxiety than recorded in the previous year.

Add to that, a CDC survey reported that one in four young adults had contemplated suicide in 2020. And in 2021, according to Pew Research, more than a third of the 18-29 demographic in the United States reported “high psychological distress.”

These findings were repeated in the 2021 Harvard Youth Poll, which discovered more than half of young Americans complained of feeling down, depressed or hopeless for at least several days over the past two week period.

Set up to combat these problems, Lifestyle Harmonics guides people through the challenges of today’s world, helping them craft a mode of existence that is both rich and fulfilling.

Our articles have, thus far, touched on things like how tough times lead to greater mental wellbeing; how challenging ourselves can be foundational for long-term satisfaction; and how embracing discomfort can expand consciousness; strengthen relationships; and tighten community sentiment

Declining Happiness

Declining Happiness

We are seemingly surrounded by scientific theorists, advice columnists and self-proclaimed lifestyle gurus—all offering formulas for happier living. And yet people today are measurably less happy than they were fifty years ago.

Social Atomisation

As humans, we evolved to thrive within tribes; those who maintain robust social networks enjoy extended lifespans and fewer health complications. Yet more and more we view ourselves as individuals, rather than co-operators; as consumers rather than participants.

Technological Dependency

There's virtually an unlimited amount of digital content available nowadays—all personally tailored to us by advanced algorithms. We're rapidly losing touch with reality as a result.

As with everything, new knowledge isn't all that counts. It's the skill with which we use and apply that knowledge that matters. Living, after all, is about values; it’s about choosing, doing and experiencing.

Room For Ambiguity

There's no royal road to certainty about how to thrive in our modern world: we need to immerse ourselves in uncertainties, mysteries, doubts, without any irritable reaching after fact & reason.
Repolarisation

Repolarisation

This platform demonstrates how—by leaning into paradox and polarisation—we can reshape our mental landscape and restore the visceral sense of passion that seems to be fading from modern society.
Push & Pull

Push & Pull

We need to do things that quicken our pulse, that push us beyond the comfort zone; but at the same time blend our wilder, more primal energies with the civilised and controlled: take care of ourselves, strategize for the future, maintain structure and self-discipline.
