Why is Happiness so important when it comes to sustainable design and work with the environment?
Happiness is a key driver in getting things done. People get so easily influenced by happy people. In Buddhism the seek for happiness is to get out the suffering and be able to share your happiness to others and for yourself.
When we are happy we get out of suffering and depression and this happiness easily calm down your mind and a stream of inner peace happens. With inner peace you look confident and our positive energy immediately encourages people around you. Working with environmental processes often seems hard or even impossible solve, but when you have a tool named Happiness in your box it will feel more like a game where you blow away negative spirals and this attitude affect other people be more motivated . This tool is happiness.

The enzyme who are triggering happiness is chemical processes, some people produce more others produce less. The bad thing is that some drugs especially use of drugs as E (MDMA) make your brain release your Serotonin in a high dosage. The result is a great feeling of love and compassion towards others and that feeling a stay with you from 3 – this and up to several months. But as the drug releases far more than it can produce it will be empty. When that happens a lot of people feel deeply unhappy, miserable and nothing can share you up. It usually last for a long time to recover.
