Charles Hugh Smith – free ebook Survival+, known sources of Happiness

Charles Hugh Smith at his blog has posted a free ebook. It is not a long read but it is a good read.

I feel it useful to post the following reminder from Charles’ book

The known sources of happiness require little to no consumption:

1. health

2. friends

3. free time to pursue interests

4. spiritual communion/worship

5. exercise/sports/play

6. gardening

7. meaningful work (unpaid qualifies)

The experience of well-being has been so derealized that the sense of deprivation experienced at the loss of fine dining, Caribbean cruises, season tickets to the games, etc. is itself suspect.

  1. I love those points that you’ve highlighted. I couldn’t agree more!

  2. great points, it is really amazing how we are braing-washed to have desires that are far from our real needs!
