Breaking sociological news:  Scientists have discovered that while a sense of gratitude, volunteer work, daily doses of laughter, a balanced diet and regular excercise go a long way in increasing general well-being, the one thing that most optimizes health, happiness and a better complexion is buying a book.  Or two.

Wow.  It’s hard to argue against science.
