The Happiness Pill?
We live in the age of quick fixes, life hacking, and doing everything we possibly can to make our lives as easy as possible. The one thing we still haven’t figured out is a way to make people happier overall. I have no idea on how to do that, if I did I would probably be traveling the world and be living my dream life.
You can get pills to fight depression, which in some cases are very needed things for people who have chemical imbalances in the body. You can get pills so that you can have sex all day long, they make a pill for just about everything! Sadly there is no pill that will make you a happy and content person. According to a poll done by the “Happiness Index” only 1 in 3 Americans reported being “very happy” with their lives and all of the components in it. That is a sad statistic! Happiness can come and go live waves in the ocean, everyone has their ups and downs, it is part of life. There are many things that you can do to improve your overall happiness levels, meditation,exercise, social events, the list is endless.
My question to you is if there was a “Happiness Pill” that would make you have a sense of contentment all the time would you take the pill if it was available to you? Or would you choose the harder road and work on improving your life and situation? Remember your current situation wouldn’t change, you would still live the same exact life, you would just be taking this special pill.
