*|MC_PREVIEW_TEXT|* https://preservewm.com We've been keeping up with the latest headlines... here are two of our favorites worth sharing. ** Your Money ------------------------------------------------------------ When it comes to spending, both goods and experiences provide immediate enjoyment, like driving a new car or enjoying a meal at a favorite restaurant. These purchases can also create lasting memories, but which type of spending yields the most enduring happiness? Some argue that buying ‘stuff’ creates more memories because items last longer. For instance, a new car can be enjoyed for years, while a vacation is short-lived. However, evidence suggests the opposite: while tangible goods may physically last longer, the enjoyment and memories they provide can fade over time. You might remember your first ride in a new car, but not the 500th. Experiences, however, tend to increase in value over time; a week-long vacation can create a lifetime of memories. Additionally, physical goods are often enjoyed alone, whereas experiences are usually shared, creating stronger relationships and shared memories. Either way, spending that generates lasting memories—whether through experiences like skydiving or visiting a new country, or physical items that facilitate memorable experiences—can be one of the best investments for long-term happiness. How much is a memory worth? (https://www.miketroxell.com/writing/memory) by Miek Troxell ** Your Life ------------------------------------------------------------ The words "comfort food" conjure different things to different people, but they all do the same thing. It provides comfort, whether a nostalgic dish from childhood, a warm bowl of something on a cold day or simply an indulgence when you need a little escape. Comfort food fills us up and leaves us feeling satiated in body and soul. On a cultural level, comfort food can connect us to our heritage or home country. All of it can and should be part of your regular eating habits. They can have a place in a balanced diet. Eating is non-negotiable, so why not enjoy it? Comfort is a basic human need, so comfort food is included. While having a regular, healthy, and balanced diet is best, feel free to enjoy your favorite foods in moderation. Remember, you're not only feeding your body, but you're also feeding your soul. Also, remember that favorite foods are a favorite simply because you cannot or do not have them every single day—hence moderation. Is It OK to Eat Comfort Food?
