Becoming Happier

I saw a link to this video on Reality Carnival with suggestions to cultivate personal happiness. It is short but very insightful.

Personally, the messages of creating quality time & the idea of simplification both resonate strongly with me. These are of supreme importance for a healthy psyche.

One thing that will not inevitably bring happiness is money. Is saw this article linked on Mindhacks:
"Why Money Makes You Unhappy"

Wealth may bring certain comforts - but as rap legend Biggie Smalls proclaimed "Mo' Money Mo' Problems." On the other hand, a severe lack of money is obviously not a situation that helps anyone's happiness in our society...

The only thing usually blocking a person's access to a happy attitude is paradoxically the person's own mind.
