Here's a simple fix to some of life's unhappiness: Do more of what you love. Though drinking and eating and a few other things might be tricky in the long run.
For such a simple idea, I don't know why it's not easier to do. Maybe I'm managing my time inefficiently? Maybe I'm too caught up in updating my social media accounts? Maybe I've forgotten what I love to do? Maybe it's time to unplug a little and dig deeper--- and remember what makes us happy.
Surfing makes me happy. Creativity and painting make me happy. So do camping, hiking, and bacon. But what I've forgotten that I used to love love love to do is hammocking. Everyone should have a hammock. Hammocks are like portals to your mom's womb---less gross and messy too. I find warmth and security when in one and you have no choice but to surrender and be helpless. It feels like freedom.
