How to be happy?

  • Happiness is really a default state, happiness is there when you remove the sense of something missing in your life.

  • The more present you are, the more happy you are.
  • Peace is happiness at rest, and happiness is peace in motion. You can convert them anytime you want.
  • Try to eliminate as many 'shoulds' in your life, real happiness is when you do everything you want to do not should do.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
