It is common to see that in many larger cities, the satisfaction level of people as well as their happiness index is less when compared to rural areas. I think the major reasons behind this are related to time management, and it appears to be a situation without a genuine solution.
The primary reason behind the declining quality of life in metropolitan cities is because of the unavailability of time. To be precise, life in big cities is faster and the city dwellers have to complete numerous works both at work and at home. The neo-urban population often has to compromise their leisure time or even sleep to move on smoothly with the city life. Most people in these areas have a higher cost of living and to meet these economic demands, they have to get engaged in multiple works. However, in most cases, they fail to manage their time, and get immersed in this crisis.
The second prominent reason is likely to be the cut-throat competition. Most metro cities prosper only people who are hardworking, dedicated and innovative. Each and every moment of a person’s work life in these cities is crucial, because they have to be utmost careful in keeping the momentum. At any instance he fails to defend the challenge raised by his competitor, he would be pushed down in the order.
Turning to the way which can address the crisis, nothing seems to be as effective as a carefully formulated time schedule, which has to be followed with utmost discipline. However, the issue is the uniformity of this schedule as it is difficult for every member to maintain this discipline.
To conclude, it is obvious that the primary challenge before most of the ultra- modern city-dwellers is the time, and I think very few can address the crisis even to some extent.
