What America’s Lifestyle Looks Like From the Inside


America is a country made up of people from many different cultures and backgrounds. And because it’s so diverse, America has developed its own distinct culture that can be hard for outsiders to understand. You might think you know what American life looks like after watching Hollywood movies or spending time with American friends or coworkers, but there are aspects of the culture that aren’t always as obvious until you see them from the inside. Here are some things I learned about America by spending time with my family:

The American lifestyle is all about being mobile.

Americans are on the go. Americans love to travel, drive, fly and camp. In fact, they spend roughly $2 trillion annually on these activities–which translates into an average of $1,200 per person spent on travel-related items like gas or plane tickets. The American lifestyle is all about being mobile: if you want to experience it first-hand then take a road trip across this great country!

This mobile lifestyle has created a nation of instant gratification.

This mobile lifestyle has created a nation of instant gratification. We want what we want when we want it, and if it takes more than five minutes to get from point A to point B, we’re likely to get frustrated. We have technology that allows us to do almost anything right away–from ordering food at home or work via an app that delivers it on demand (and tracks your location) or booking flights through an app that compares prices across airlines and gives real-time updates on flight status.

We’re also connected 24/7 thanks to our phones: they connect us with friends; allow us to shop online; provide entertainment through social media sites like Facebook or Instagram; help us navigate unfamiliar cities using GPS maps; give instant access to weather reports; allow us check into locations on Foursquare…the list goes on and on!

Sports are central to American life.

Sports are central to American life. They’re a big part of our culture, entertainment, leisure and social life. Sports also play a significant role in business and politics.

Sports are the most popular form of recreation in the United States, with more than half (55{a6d4e250f4dbd7c38290d51a301669b0b15c2bd58d8474132f85a8137f152abc}) of adults regularly participating in sports activities according to a 2014 Gallup poll.[1] In addition to being an activity that brings people together socially, playing sports can help improve your health by reducing stress levels,[2] increasing cardiovascular endurance[3] and improving bone density.[4][5]

We love our fast food.

Fast food is a big part of American culture. It’s everywhere in America, and it’s cheap and easy to get. But the reason we love it so much is because it tastes good! We eat fast food for breakfast, lunch and dinner–and sometimes more than once a day (or every hour).

So why are we so addicted? Because most Americans don’t have time to cook elaborate meals from scratch every day (even though many would prefer to). The next time you’re tempted by a drive-thru menu or takeout menu, think about all those delicious dishes that could be waiting on your stovetop if only you had some extra minutes in your day…

Americans are obsessed with their phones.

Americans are obsessed with their phones.

In fact, they’re more likely to check their phones than anyone else in the world. Americans check their phones an average of 110 times a day–that’s once every 14 minutes! And it doesn’t stop there: we even check our phones before we get out of bed each morning. This obsession has led some people to call for an “Off Switch Day”–a designated time when all Americans agree not to use smartphones or social media for 24 hours so they can focus on other things like family or friends instead.

We love our cars and trucks, too.

Americans love their cars. We have the most cars in the world, and they’re not just for driving around town or to the grocery store. If you live in America, your chance of being killed by a car is four times higher than if you live in Germany (we know what you’re thinking: “Germans don’t drive”). We even have names for our cars based on how they look–SUVs are “crossovers” and vans are “minivans.”

Americans also love big trucks like pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles (SUVs). They can haul large loads of stuff around easily; this makes them useful for construction work or moving houses. But some people use these vehicles for fun activities like off-roading or driving through mud pits at high speeds!

We aren’t all that different from one another in terms of how we live day-to-day.

But, as you might expect, we’re also not all that different from one another in terms of how we live day-to-day.

  • We all have the same basic needs: food, water and shelter.
  • We like to be comfortable and safe.
  • We enjoy good food and entertainment–or at least a little bit of both every day (and sometimes more than a little bit).

America is a great place to visit, but it’s even better to know what goes on there when you’re not actually in it!

It’s no secret that Americans love their country and its culture. They have good reason: America has been a leader in many areas, including politics and technology. But if you take your eyes off of all the glitzy things that make up our lifestyle–the Hollywood movies and fancy restaurants–you’ll find that there are some less glamorous aspects of American life as well.

We hope that this look at the American lifestyle has given you a new perspective on how we live. It’s not just about what we think is important; it’s also about what our country thinks is important, too!
