Never underestimate the affective forecasting: Happiness never last

Sadness too never endures indefinitely

The hedonic treadmill effect

How to keep in check affective forecasting?

1. Avoid negative conditions that you cannot grow accustomed to, such as commuting to work, noise, chronic stress

2. Expect that happiness from owning products, bonuses and prizes… is of the short-term nature

3. Aim for more free time and autonomy, since long-lasting positive effect come from what you actively do

4. Follow your passion, even if you have to initially pay a high price for it.

5. Invest in friendships, preferably friends not related to your profession
