Wow, this is really interesting: 10 Things Science Says Will Make You Happy. And all so easily done--well, except maybe #9. lol
In the near future, we are all going to need easy, down-to-earth things that make us happy for very little money. The current, veritable blizzard of pink slips may make it hard to see what is coming around the bend, but it is nothing good.
For, I fear we are headed into a long passage that will lead us ever downward into the deepening darkness and not upward into the light. There is coming a transition from our currently, relatively wealthy society into, what can only be described as, a hardship society.
I hope we have all listened to our parents and grandparents when they talked about the Great Depression.
We are going to need their tricks for survival.
