Friday the 13th: The formula for happiness
With our decisions and the actions derived from them, we always pursue a concrete goal. Namely, to be happy. A team of researchers at University College London has discovered what it takes to achieve this goal. And as researchers do, they have put the factors they have identified into a comprehensible formula. Understandable, at least, for those who have a degree in higher mathematics. For the rest, let's put it that way: happiness means something different for everyone. But it can be positively influenced by things like:
– the company
of happy people
– Activities and adventures
– Money to an extent
that one is doing well
The only question that remains is what optimally combines these three factors. The road trip is the obvious choice here: usually completed on holiday, the mood is decidedly relaxed most of the time - and people are content. Activities and adventures? Are pre-programmed anyway. And traditionally, you don't need much on the road trip anyway, except for a bit of food and the right weather. So there's plenty of money left over anyway. And we already have a suggestion for the perfect road trip vehicle - see above.
