    I will begin with the conclusion.  Those persons who live happy, healthy and long lives have found the ability--whether by accident of birth, education or the joy of travel--to balance the important elements of their lives.  In other words lead an integrated lifestyle.  The subtopics below will elaborate on this idea.  Here is a link to an extensive scientific study that supports a similar idea.

    Items of Interest from the Internet




    Read this short article in which I relate various scientific studies to my Greek island life and discuss the all important ingredient:  attitude.  I quote myself:

    "Not everyone wants to live on a Greek isle but each person can chose to create an environment in which each aspect reinforces the others: time for naps, time to seek out and prepare local seasonal foods, time to enjoy the activities around you. All of these will give you more quality time on earth."


    I am rather proud of this article that makes a strong case that the pursuit of pleasure leads to success in all of your endeavors.

    Now I will conclude with the conclusion from that article:  For those who think the pursuit of pleasure to advance one's success is too selfish I refer you to:

    "Only the development of compassion and understanding for others can bring us the tranquility and happiness we all seek."          --Dalai Lama XIV
