(how to be happy with what you have)

For my self-directed study I am investigating the theme of 'Simplicity' and 'Contentment'... How dependent are we on all the conveniences and luxuries of the modern world, and do they actually make us any happier?

A lecture by Dan Gilbert HERE investigates the idea that we can synthesise happiness and that, in the long run our situation has little effect upon our overall happiness.

If you threw away everything you owned, how quickly would you be able to accept your new situation and learn to be happy without missing anything you lost?

This book is an investigation into trying to identify your most important possessions, and challenges your dependence on them
