People are leaving their high-pay, high-stress jobs for some- thing that pays less but is more fulfilling. e minimalist concept of "less is more" is becoming more accepted. "Nice cars are fun, I've enjoyed that in my life, but in the long run, those things are not going to make me happy," Dr. Harmon says. "Simplifying your life and finances will make you happier. Too many times, people get in too much debt so they now have to chase dollars and don't give themselves the opportunity to say, 'Well, I didn't really need that new $50,000 car. I could have done something else and not struggle now.' ere's value in seeing what matters." Dr. Harmon adds that happiness isn't about becoming more successful or having more than others. "I can think of a number of individuals and look at their lives and it's easy to feel sorry for them because they don't have much, but those same people are sometimes the happiest," he says. "It's internal. It's just how you view the world. It may seem overly simplistic but, oen, the most beauti- ful things are right in front of us and our own happiness is in our own grasp." At this time of the year, resolutions are made and committed to but oen vanish by the time spring arrives. Everyone wants to lose weight, make more money, be respected in the workplace or at home. But happiness – true happiness – that's really the greatest resolution of all. ank you for reading.
