    What makes people happy?

    In simple terms, what makes people around the globe happy and content? Being with friends and loved ones?
    Talking and laughing? Playing games? Movies? Reading? Writing? Travel? Favorite foods? Sleeping? What else?

    Beer, sex and lots of money.

    Our true treasures lie in the relationships we have not the "stuff". Sadly, many discover this at the end of the run. "Stuff" give momentary pleasure unless shared with those we love. Even then, the pleasure soons wears off once the new stuff is not so new.

    You should get rid of those slippers (specially if you have floor heating).
    Some of suggestions, though, I like my teddy bear (which I still have...) 😉
