Happiness. It’s serious.

So we established that we’re going to start a happiness revolution. What in the world is happiness, anyway?

Happiness has often been ridiculed and dismissed as naivety: “Don’t worry. Be happy. Life will be all right.” Ugh. Whatever man.

That’s not what happiness is really about. Happiness is serious, and we believe it’s important. We want happiness to stick.

Happiness is about living life based on who you are. It’s about doing what you love. It’s about surrounding yourself with people that you care about. It’s about finding time to remain mentally and physically healthy. It’s about being realistically optimistic about your life and our world. It’s about balance.

That last one is key. It’s about balance. Our world is both environmentally and socially unsustainable with the way we live now. In fact, Action for Happiness tweeted and linked to a thought-provoking article: “The current system isn’t just rubbish at making us happier, it actually demands our unhappiness to fuel growth. http://www.bristol247.com/2011/10/27/mike-zeidler-why-i-want-to-make-bristol-a-global-leader-in-happiness-16822/.”

Interesting huh.

Let’s restore the balance. We’re serious.

About Pete Wangwongwiroj

I fell in love with traveling back when I was a college student. Then I realized it can be cheap! I excelled in maximizing the value of airline miles and points and finding flight deals and tricks while spending as little out of pocket as possible. I've learned how to find the best deals no matter what your goals are. Whether you're willing to make four connections to save money or look for the most affordable way to shower on a plane (yes, that's a thing), I'm your guy. Six continents later, I'm here to help you maximize value for your money, and also work my way towards my last continent - Antarctica!
