This blog mostly talks about things that you can do as a person to feel happier and more connected to a meaningful life. However this individualistic focus doesn’t mean, that we should ignore the larger picture: yes we can learn to deal with stress at work but that doesn’t mean that this in any way absolves the responsibility of management to ensure that they take responsibility for how things are going. Similarly if a country does well on a happiness index doesn’t mean that this in any way justifies a government that doesn’t care about human rights or democracy. These ideas should help you to lead a meaningful and happy life. They should not be used to justify other crap that is going on and might need to be dealt with differently.
