It is best to live a balanced life than to jump between the two extremes. Moderation is key. The trouble with being hedonistic is that once one has indulged in material pleasures, the pleasure associated with it wears out over time, and it becomes an addiction to find a higher form of pleasure to the senses. It loses meaning. Living a life in moderation helps to make the pleasures in life meaningful, as well as seeking to give oneself a meaningful life through means other than the senses alone.
