There are widely used terms that can make me cringe because they are sometimes used to describe what I do but they, in fact, do not. Currently for me, one of those terms is lifestyle.

Lifestyle could be defined as someone’s personality; taken more broadly, it is a word that encompasses the worldview of that person and their outlook on life.
