One “must” for this week
"Happiness is built by habits and the five chimps theory". One of my favourite passages from The Almanack of Naval Ravikant.
“At the end of the day, you are a combination of your habits and the people who you spend the most time with."
Building good habits, such as avoiding alcohol and sugar, and surrounding ourselves with positive people, can increase our long-term happiness. Happiness is a “skill” that requires intention, focus, and continuous effort, and we can try different activities and approaches to find what works for us.
