What we make of the World is what it is. But how can we tell for sure? We can tell without a speck of a doubt by only experiencing the World ourselves, first hand with no bars held in between. Exploring the World could mean an activity as simple as taking an evening walk through a never before ventured path or an altogether new route with old paths or contrariwise to trekking rugged mountain paths to camping in a remote spot that could be a tent in the jungle or just beyond the beach line on the borders of a thicket in an uninhabited island out at sea. Nothing, in ways, could be more exhilarating.
6 Avoid the Machine

Life today has become so autonomous that we have lost touch with the need to be in touch with certain things that have defined the joys of living life at all. From letting a machine do the spelling for you, not to mention grammar and all other forms of wording your thoughts, to simply stretching your legs to the quick stop for a bunch of apples; everyone needs something to “aid” them and make things “easier” for them than doing things the way they are supposed to be done. Avoid the machine, and do these and many more things yourself and you will not be surprised to feel happy.
5 Frequent sex

There have been more than a handful of myths surrounding this I’d say, more than what is healthy. Sex had been observed to only emphasize procreation since time immemorial but times, Ladies, Gentlemen and all you other lovelier people have changed! Sex is now viewed as that special something that we could use to express ourselves in countless ways, other than just the mindless hop stops and bang for an offspring. Having long hours of intense and mellow sex has become a trend among many inadvertently, but harmoniously. And this has been set down as one of the secrets to sustain happiness in life by our super intelligent scribes.

Life as we know it seems to be “losing its cover” for itself ever since or even since prior to the information age –no doubt. But how many of these discoveries have you made yourself?

In the present time and age this does not seem to be a magical feat in any way, given that we have access to all we need to know the little that the mysteries are telling us, to uncover the bigger picture and popularize it. Some hints are Google or Discovery to research and Writerscafe or Facebook to simply share it with the World, thus propagating the wisdom. What more can make one happier than the joy of seeing the World grow with you? Not so much of a secret any more is it?

What with our strained eyes and nerves, not to mention fingers and back and neck that at least 1 in a thousand people around the world over are risking to various forms of ailments or even diseases sometimes running the danger of even being incapacitated, the simple observance for well deserved rest is more than enough to sustain that risk free healthy comfort that leads to sustain happiness in life.
