The Rap on Happiness
In her recent Sunday book review, Amy Bloom surveys the writings of multiple modern gurus to produce a short-list of five happiness essentials. Scan them over and see if there are any you think she left off of the list:
(1) Be in possession of the basics — food, shelter, good health, safety.
(2) Get enough sleep.
(3) Have relationships that matter to you.
(4) Take compassionate care of others and of yourself.
(5) Have work or an interest that engages you.
