How can an atheist trigger radical lifestyle changes, similar to what's sometimes seen when people find religion?

Answer

When you're active in your religion, you're required or expected to go to church every Sunday (Saturday if your 7th Day Adventist) as well as take part in social gatherings and fund raising for churches etc.  

When you are an Atheist and you stop believing that these things actually matter or are even true, you have all this free time suddenly open up. Now you have more time to have fun, go exercise, learn something new, educate yourself by teaching books or watching documentaries or just relax in your own or with your spouse, visit family, etc..  

You actually get to live in your spare time instead of acting like a slave to a god that does not exist. 

To me these are huge lifestyle changes!

Do you have a different answer that might help the questioner? How would you answer this question?
