The other night I watched this documentary "about human beings at their best". It begins with the following quote , and documents travel around the world to find the earth's happiest people. Not surprisingly, the happiest people are indigenous folks, living at a level of sheer survival, but with close ties to family and community. The unhappiest? The developed nations, with their excess, who never seem to have "Enough" to satisfy their cravings.
The Constitution guarantees the American people
the right to pursue happiness.
You have to catch it yourself.
The documentary suggests committing acts of kindness
has proven to raise one's happiness quotient exponentially,
Spend time with friends and family.
Connect to your community.
