15 Things You Should Give Up To Be Happy

When looking for happiness, people tend to focus on GETTING:  acquiring, earning, buying, creating.  I think this can sometimes lead to more frustration, because it can be very difficult to ascertain if we’re really getting what we think we want, and sometimes the getting takes too long, and we don’t notice the opportunities for happiness that occur in the meantime.

This article takes a slightly different approach:  things to cut out of your life in order to be happier.  It’s nothing you probably don’t already know on some level, but I found it helpful to read these things in simple, clear-cut terms.  It’s a lot easier to push aside these habits and enjoy the resulting happiness than it is to go out in search of happiness by pursuing things we may never get.  Give it a read!
