The letter that went this week to the Hastings Observer was perhaps too critical of the prevalent type of journalism that leads us away from happiness?
For a headline that encapsulates the politics of greed and the politics of envy, you couldn't have done much better than last week's: "48 council staff on double the average Hastings wage". How about for just one week, trying gratitude for what we have here and generosity? Gratitude and generosity builds well-being; greed and envy does not. Seeing as the 20th-26th June is a global celebration of all people, communities and businesses making the world a healthier and happier place, called AgoodWeek – www.agoodweek.com , do come and enjoy local acts of generosity with healing sessions, , films, discussions and an innovative "streetbank" being provided for free at the Southwater , as part one of the “Hastings & St Leonards - Action for Happiness” activity.
