"The Joy of Quiet"

"Nothing makes me feel better - calmer, clearer and happier-than being in one place, absorbed in a book, a conversation, a piece of music.It's actually something deeper than mere happiness: it's joy, which the monk David Steindl-Rast describes as "that kind of happiness that doesn't depend on what happens."

Pico Iyer in "The Joy of Quiet"

Also practice "Internet sabbath" every week, turning off online connections for some time between Friday night and Monday morning.
