4 Uncomfortable Truths about Traveling in China (and Why You Should Still Go)

4 Uncomfortable Truths about Traveling in China (and Why You Should Still Go)

What should we think of China nowadays? The People’s Republic only just ratified a constitution in 1982, meaning the supreme law governing nearly a fifth of the world’s population is younger than Natalie Portman. The Mao regime destroyed much of China’s rich history and heritage, forcing peasants to abandon their farms and families to work in factories hundreds of miles away. Today, China’...

Why Caffeine is the World's Favorite Drug

Why Caffeine is the World's Favorite Drug

I’m proud to say caffeine is the only drug I’ve abused to the point of causing my mother to break down in tears. Plus, it was entirely her fault. When I was five, she offered me a bottle of Mountain Dew on a road trip, mistaking it for Pepsi’s equivalent of a caffeine-free Sprite. Having consumed enough caffeine to resurrect a dead horse, I began fidgeting and giggling in the backseat of our...

My Story: How I Mastered Happiness at 24

Hi, I'm Chris! I'm a former workaholic turned author and happiness coach. Like many others I found happiness early in life by giving up my pursuit of financial wealth. But unlike others, I didn't stop at finding one or two things which made my life fulfilling and joyful again; I wanted to holistically understand happiness and pass along what I'd learned, so no one else in my generation would fall ...
