    1 Avoid fast food at all costs.

    2 Procure most time possible to family and friends, and make them feel loved and important.

    3 If #2 absolutely requires breaking #1, do it.

    4 Save all free coupons which don't require purchase and hand them to the homeless.

    5 Never buy anything which you cannot dispose off at any moment and in a heartbeat. That includes a home.

    6 Sleep well, eat healthy, and exercise.

    7 If offered, never say no to sex. As long as it is safe, do it and put all your heart into pleasing the other person(s).

    8 Do not watch TV. See # 5 above.

    9 Never owe money. It doesn't matter if it is to a bank or to an individual.

    10 Work in something you love and do the minimum effort to get by, so you always have time, mind and energy for #2, #6 and #7 above.

    From the book 'Happiness is not rocket science' by Dr. Jeroen Müller, professor of astrophysics at Verthöngen Institute of Science and former advisor in aerospace matters for the EU commission.

    What is the minimum effort involved in professing astrophysics and did he do too little when he was advisor for aerospace matters for the EU commission I wonder?
    I think happiness is more complex than he has summed up.

    Dancing, music, being creative, giving, learning new things, having a dream.
    Real ale? Really?!

    Funny thing is that Harvard just released their 75-year-long field study on
    happiness, where people, their children and grandkids have been studied,
    observed, interviewed, assessed and whatnot, and the conclusion is that
    happiness... (drumroll) ... is directly correlated to having good relationships.
    Nothing else, nothing more.

    I guess that if you love to do something and you happen to be good at
    it, the effort required is quite minor compared to other endeavors.

    I, for example, excel at making passionate and skillful love to beautiful sen̂oritas.
    As a professional gigolo, then, I don't have to make a lot of effort to earn my
    living nicely and I put little time and thought into it. Just the minimum. One
    client per week and voilá.

    Sure! Got plenty of them but... are you homeless? I'd need an apostilled
    certificate of your homelessness.
