    accelerated lifestyle

    Hello,

    Could you help me with this:

    Should I say I have or I live an accelerated lifestyle?
    Is this phrase correct at all?

    Thank you very much for your help,
    hety

    I've never heard this expression. Is it the same as "living life in the fast lane?'

    Life in the fast lane is a risky, exciting life.

    Accelerated lifestyle is the pace of life sped-up by technology, media, globalization, etc.
