Life should be moulded in such a way so that we can be able to remember the Lord constantly.
Life is for the glorification of topics on Hari. If that is stopped, then what is the need is there to carry on life?
The main purpose of sannyasa life is to be in constant companionship with the Supreme Lord, either by thinking of Him within the heart or hearing of Him through aural reception.
