The Question

If you could put it into words...

what elements in this modern world keep us preoccupied to the point where we find it difficult to relax and make time for ourselves and our well being?

Origins of the Question

I'm looking for all different perspectives, but I was given the prompt "How I got there from here" in my advanced English comp class, which made me think of achieving enlightenment in today's world...and how things like money/material goods and the struggle to stay a step ahead of "the other guy" could hold us back from achieving our personal spiritual goals.

It's late, so I hope this makes sense. I'm looking forward to what you all have to say!
