How To Deal With Regret

We may kick ourselves and regret an action we took right now. In the long run, though, we are more likely to regret not acting. It is all the missed opportunities that haunt us. Find purpose in life and get into action. It is never too late to start!

Your Life Is Directed By Chemicals

We get most of our happy moments from dopamine that is a short-term solution. You need to get more long lasting oxytocin into your life and that means caring for others and have others care for you. You don’t get that by spending your time on social media or watching TV.

You Are Wired To Socialize

We all need to feel we belong. Ignoring everyone to pursue your happiness will lead to the exact opposite. You can’t get your oxytocin flowing sitting home alone. So every now and then, get out and meet some real people.

Being A Little Weird Is Good For You

There is no such thing as being normal. We are all different in some way. Normal is not a question of biology and genes. It is a question of social agreement, environment, and context. You can try to hide and change your weirdness, or you can embrace it.

How Much Money Is Enough?

The “money can’t buy you happiness” quote is valid only if you spend your money wrong. If you purchase luxuries and generally any goods you consume or that just sit in your house, you won’t buy happiness.
