A few weeks ago the anxiety section of The New York Times Opionator featured a great essay by the philosophizing cartoonist Tim Kreider lamenting the “crazy busy” epidemic sweeping our overwrought, overworked, and overwhelmed nation. He posits that the “busy trap” is self imposed, claiming that our G-d out iLifes have led us to collectively believe that the opposite of busy is nothing short of terrifying. He goes on to remind us that “idleness is not just a vacation, an indulgence or a vice; it is as indispensable to the brain as vitamin D is to the body, and deprived of it we suffer a mental affliction as disfiguring as rickets.”
Our favorite Czech novelist (and perennial contender for the Nobel Prize in Literature!) Milan Kundera pretty much summed it up by saying that “ambition is a poor excuse for not having sense enough to be lazy.” To promote a lazier life, we’ve rounded up some of the best designs in the world that combat the anguish of a double booked existence. From a transformable burrito shaped lounger that lets you be all kinds of lazy to a sleeping bag chair you never have to leave, click through to check out our favorite designs to help you live a more languid life.
