In some regions of the world it is difficulty to count days. In such places time and the day of the week does not mean anything. The world seem to be at a stand still with life lived as things unfold.
Many people have desired a state of nothingness. It has been proved past and present that thinking and marking of the days for future events has an effect to most on their brain as they worry and plan for the coming episodes. Also bringing too much negative emotional experiences from the past has been proved to destroy the present. In fact any form of remorse is usually as a result of digging personal bad experiences from the past.
Most remote rural area livelihood is lived on day to day basis where time has different meaning from that assigned to in urban areas, modern city life. As to which is a quality life between modernity with time pressures and time stale living, people may have their own judgements and opinion.

They were still the only farm in the whole country—in all England!—owned and operated by animals. ——– After the hoisting of the flag all the animals trooped into the big barn for a general assembly which was known as the Meeting. Here the work of the coming week was planned out and resolutions were put forward and debated. It was always the pigs who put forward the resolutions. The other animals understood how to vote, but could never think of any resolutions of their own.”
“It had become usual to give Napoleon the Credit for every Successful achievement and every stroke of good fortune. You would often hear one hen remark to another, “Under the guidance of our leader, Comrade Napoleon, I have laid five eggs in six days” or two cows, enjoying a drink at the pool, would exclaim, “thanks to the leadership of Comrade Napoleon, how excellent this water tastes!”…”
