...and happy
We're living in a fast-paced world, where people engage in everlasting rat-races, advertising surrounds us and noise has become vital for our existence. If we're calm and peaceful, something's definitely wrong.
But trends are beggining to show a different side, too. One that's much more quiet and slow-lived, one that might actually work again.
People taking up exotic philosophies, joining yoga classes and re-arranging their homes Feng-Shui style - that's just the surface, but it might soon become a way of life for more and more of us.
Let's just think for a moment about other cultures. Take the Kingdom of Bhutan, for example. Situated in the Eastern Himalayas, between Tibet and India, this country is a striking sight. They don't have traffic lights (because these stressed the population), advertising is restricted, ecology is at its peak and traditions are preserved for ages.
But most important of all, the monarch once said this kingdom cares more about its GROSS NATIONAL HAPPINESS than about its Gross National Product (and these words just don't seem to be political marketing @ work).
Well, what do we learn from that?
