10 Things to Give Up in Exchange for Happiness. 

donhornsby's curator insight, October 29, 2013 7:55 AM

(From the article): Give up control. Control is an illusion. We live in an out of control world. Learn to embrace the new and welcome change; otherwise you'll grow old through your own rigidity. Learn to let go.

eli's curator insight, April 22, 2014 6:39 AM

type of content: article

this article brings a couple of very important changes we should make our lifes in order to be happier' for example:

1. Give up caring what other people think of you. I know it seems counter intuitive as we humans are primal pack animals that don't want to be cast from the village, but spending time worrying what others think, is a waste of energy. You'll never please everyone and it's none of your business what others think of you.
