I love when John Tierney of the New York Times writes and his newest Science Section article of November 16th, 2010 is no exception. My favorite sentence in reference to happiness from the article is: “[...] the location of the body is much less important than the location of the mind [...]!”
How very true is that and still we love to travel and love to have ourselves transported, physically to places that ought to make us happy; and I'm the first to agree that there's nothing like standing IN nature and experiencing it - some might feel that way about art, a city or a restaurant.
But on the long run and on a much more practical level - the mind travels for free and can go where the body can't - we should all book more regular braincations.
I'll start right now by STOPPING to write...
