Are you stressed out and as a result experiencing depression, anxiety or poor health? Are you stuck in the cycle of wake up, go to work, go home, sleep just to do it all again tomorrow and the only way you can see to escape this hamster wheel is an unbelievable stroke of luck like winning the lottery?

Do you work sacrificing health and well-being and eventually you arrive at someone’s idea of the top? Then, upon arrival at this preconceived idea of joy, do you think “now I can be happy”, and you wonder “why don’t I feel any different?” So, you decide you should start pretending until the line gets so blurred that you wonder to yourself “Do I even know what happiness is?”
