Is the happiness mindset consistent with happiness?

The purpose of this post is to explore the happiness mindset with a different set of lenses. Different to what? Different to ‘everybody’ else – meaning ‘the majority’. This is not advice to any person. Hence there is no guidance on how to achieve a better alternative, or a moreRead More

Saving energy if you want to

If your name is Rip van Winkle, you would not know that there is an energy crisis on over the last couple months. That was brewing for over a year but the war in Ukraine made it more prominent. It would have happened anyway but that’s a different story. I’veRead More
