In the article of BBC : US island that speaks ELizabethan English, there are the sentences as follows.

"There isn't a Lowes or a Harris Teeter or any [supermarkets]. Rarely does anyone go off the island without a cooler [to bring back supplies].
You have to be almost a holistic person, capable of dealing with less of a hectic nightlife lifestyle."

Question) Would you please explain the meaning of the phrase "dealing with less of a hectic nightlife lifestyle"?

Thank you.

    It’s idiosyncratic direct speech. Most people would probably not use the same words to say that in order to handle living on the island you have to be the sort of person who doesn’t crave a lifestyle characterised by a hectic nightlife (clubbing, etc.).
