Healthy Work Ethic is the inhale (tension), but Healthy Relaxation Ethic (HRE) is the upcoming exhale (release) into the main reason for Stress Health’s being these days (preferably like the sun about to gorgeously rise above the powerfully beautiful horizon).
HRE won’t be another rigidly formatted album (or such), but a naturally sporadic release of relaxing material (in any of many media forms) to raise public awareness that balance is stability — a release likely covering my remaining lifetime participation to our preferably perpetual Stress Health entertainment (inclusively educational) project.
Part of that balance logically includes the tragically rare balance between a healthy work and relaxation ethic. Work more than you relax (or vice versa), then instability is the inevitable result. Severe instability leads to abusive unhealthy stress compensation (e.g. serious drug abuse and violence) — the real scourge involving drugs, weapons, and businesses (nonetheless any other form of abuse) much to the dominating crickets chirping of the mainstream media (a serious problem against this necessary balance).
Balancing work hours with relaxation hours strengthens families (assuming the value of that work forms a livable wage), improves productivity by improving employee health (e.g. work smarter, not harder), and extends the relaxation industry in many ways creating the need for more jobs. This means 12 hours of work (including job, family support, exercise, etc.) and the remaining allocated to relaxation (obviously including sleeping) each day. Great care is needed to ensure the intensity of each side of that balance is unconflicting against that balance, so that’s why I distinguish a healthy work/relaxation ethic from the misguided version of it.
Nothing innovatively done right in life is easy, and the audio sculpture titled “Upstream” uniquely expresses that challenge as it applies to any and all of us.

My highly recommended way to experience Healthy Work Ethic is to turn off the lights, set your best audio system to your loudest comfortable volume, apply a comforting and lawfully used psychedelic (e.g. cannabis) — e.g. Blue Dream — and listen to (i.e. ride) the whole 45 minute long “sonaride”…
