the hedonic treadmill

how-to-find-happiness

A growing list of traditional life pursuits are being found to have zero to only small correlations with happiness, well-being, and life satisfaction:

Beauty: ugly people are happy too.
Money:Β Materialism is inefficient.
Sunshine:Avoid really cold and dark places. Everything else is not much different
Education: Cheap education is the best education.
Children:Β Kids are for meaning and purpose. Friends and vacations are for happiness.
Choice:Β Simplify. Uncertainty feels bad, simplicity feels good.
