Living out of the routine 9-5 Jobs: A Perspective on alternative Life Styles available.

Early humans lived a fairly simple life as similar as to the animals, as humans are a part of animal kingdom. Since millions of years humans have been evolved in to an advanced level scientifically, culturally, philosophically, materialistically, spiritually and in many more ways. Even though we posses lot of materialistic comforts to that of the early humans of hunters and gatherers, we still are experiencing extreme "pressure" to achieve "success", like to get good academic degrees, high paying jobs, huge money and expensive materials. As far as many, success means money and fame. Is it? In the search of 'imaginary success" people are struggling to get it and maintaining it still many are feeling depression, anxiety, inferiority, failure and often end up in "quitting" their life. If we compare animals from ages to now, they have not been changed a little in their lifestyle, they follow pretty much same lifestyle as their predecessors did, grazing, migration, reproduction and off spring development.

Not to mention, most of the world follow a 9-5 job in pursuing the success or fulfilling their desires and to earn money to support their lives and their dependents. Not everyone can live like that, not even our relatives the hunters and gathers had done that. They lived a natural life of living in forests, gathering food from animals or plants/trees. In their point of view working in a 9-5 job is a strange thing and in our "development" point of view living in forests is odd thing. It's just ours perspective that is strange or normal.

Many people around the world quit their routine jobs in pursuit of freedom from consumerism and materialism to be happy. They wanted to live fairly simple and easy life, without paying for a lot of materials by decreasing their desires for unnecessary materials that the world of industries offer. It is up to us to decide to find happiness in which way? Then why not to take a lead of our life and follow our heart in pursuing the life that we have ever wanted in happiness.

Some of the great examples of alternative lifestyle happy and intelligent people followed around the world...

After seven years, he realized that he needs only a bowl of meal and for him it didn't make sense to live for the rest of his life. so he quit the job, moved back to the countryside and pursued farming for his living. Importantly, he became famous after he built several houses from earthen soil. He is proud that he has a lot of time now, producing his own food and building homes in him own land (he has several home now!).
