Simple tips for living a happier life

Introduction

In this post I will outline some simple measures to help you live a happier life, spiritually and materially. Tips include how to find lasting happiness, and how to live a more comfortable life materially by saving money on accommodation, food, energy, water, banking, transport, and other expenses. A lot of the material tips are specific to Australia, but can be more generally applied elsewhere.

There are some ways to live more sustainably, such as:

  • spirituality;
  • sustainable energy, including stationary electricity and conservation
  • sustainable agriculture;
  • a healthy, vegan diet;
  • composting; growing food from food scraps; food cultivation at home; although these may not be very economically efficient compared to more industrial methods of food waste management such as anaerobic digestion (lobby your council to get food waste bins which will then use such a method and sign this petition); conventional modern agriculture; and organic products, respectively.
  • sustainable transport;
  • population control with celibacy, self control; or sexual moderation with using sex not for pleasure but for reproduction, and to produce at most a number of children that is sustainable. I would suggest no more than two children, even no more than one (or perhaps none as I plan to do to compensate for people who have three or more!) as a precautionary principle until humanity is better able to manage itself and the environment, including managing the climate, energy, water, land use, agriculture, forestry, water, the ocean, and industry;
  • accommodation;
  • water conservation and efficiency;
  • selfless service; and
  • sustainable consumption.
