There's a waxing and waning to light, which we ignore. We are expected, or expect ourselves, to get up at X time, work from Y to Z at the widget works, eat dinner at A o'clock, go to bed at B, winter, spring, summer, and autumn. Life, which should rise and fall with the seasons, has lost its variation. Perhaps everyone should have four jobs - or even one main job and two refresh jobs that are just intended to serve as a counterpoint to your usual occupation (if usually inside - your spring/autumn jobs might be physical work outside).
In the winter you might work from 9 to 5 at the widget works five days a week designing widgets, but in April you work your springtime job planting flowers in the local parks or working in a fish hatchery from 7 to 2 four days a week. In May you resume your main job, but sometime in the autumn you again work at a different job - say driving a tractor or installing solar panels.
Well don't shriek - it's just an idea.
