HOLIDAY DAY 10
Just finished the book ‘Stuffocation’ by James Wallman; I would recommend it highly. It is about the cultural switch from materialism (consumerism or conspicuous consumption) to minimalism and/or experientialism. The book raises a lot of issues relevant to health and healthcare. I wonder if healthcare is ready for a minimalist revolution and whether or not we can design a better healthcare system that can be experiential rather than consumptive? Any comments would be welcome. I have lots of ideas to try and make this happen; all of them are compatible with the current trend towards self-management.
Apologies about being incommunicado but the Internet connections on the Greek Islands we have been staying on is very poor and intermittent; to be frank abysmal.
