inspiration - Bhutan GNH

Bhutan is a small landlocked country in south Asia, it has a small population of about 700,000 people. However it is ranked one of the happiest countries in the world!(it was ranked happiest country in Asia by business week magazine in 2006)

i believe this is partly due to the fact that they pursue GNH instead of GDP.

GNH- Gross National Happiness
as the video explains, the pursuit of happiness  >  the pursuit of economic growth and materialistic wealth in Bhutan. despite not being very well off as a country, it is a very happy country.
so it is possible to be happy without having many things or having alot of money, what we need is the the right attitude.
