Odds are that you are reading this on a phone or computer and as a result have access to unlimited “connection” in your pocket on a daily basis. Your smartphone is at your fingertips to check emails, text, read the news, play games, check social media, or watch videos. Yet the very thing that our phones were originally invented for is often the last thing we use it to do: connect.

The Simple Secret to Happiness

The Simple Secret to Happiness

People want to be happy. It is, in a very real way, the goal of life. But the search for happiness often proves elusive. People spend their whole lives searching for it without finding it, often spending fortunes in its pursuit. People commonly, and futilely, search for happiness in acquisition, success, experiences, and indulgence. They search in these places because that is where they are taught by society to search for it. However, none of them actually work to create happiness.
