Nowadays, I don't have to get up way early to do chores, then 1.) dress for the office, 2.) drive to town, and 3.) work as a cog in the medical industrial system.

That's what I don't do.

I do get up only semi-early, but I've always been an early bird. I tend to the animals, but it's a joy because I'm not rushed. Still don't get things done completely, but that's okay, because I finally learned that very few regular chores are ever really done.

Agree on not wear a watch. Have not had one on for 19 years.
Not being tied to a cell phone, pager, or portable police radio, waiting to get called out to a serious fatal accident.
Bring able to do my farming and gardening at my leisure.

This list could get pretty long, fast.
Not wearing a watch for 22 yrs, quit right after I retired from the Rescue Squad.
I sleep and eat anytime I want...almost no schedule.
Living the way I want.
