  1. A great message, Hero. Glad y’all had fun in Vegas, and I agree it’s a great place to appreciate non-excess!

    Lots of interesting and emerging research in behavioral economics going on right now vis-a-vis happiness. And my personal views align with yours to a great deal.

    Nice work, and glad you’re back!

  2. Vegas must have been a ton of fun! Standing near the top of a hotel and taking the light-filled picture of the strip was the highlight of my trip when I went. Beautiful city but very sinful, as you’ve described.

    Excess definitely is not a good way to go. Having more than what is needed and then some more is hard to manage, which could provide a lot more chaos into life than solve more problems. Great ideas!

  3. Great post! I’m glad you enjoyed but I have experienced the same things you have described. I think I heard a saying like – “more isn’t always better, it’s usually just more”…

  4. I had a similar reaction when we went to Vegas a few years ago. We were there for almost a week and it was too much. However, it made me feel even more grateful for the lives we had back in Montana. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

    What if you don’t have excess time to go on vacation or what if you feel you wouldn’t enjoy anything so excessive anyway? Then all you will need is a day or two to yourself playing video games or lounging and you will be back up and running and excited about whatever you were burned up on in the first place! The human brain runs better on change but gravitates eventually towards consistency. It is odd that something that feels good would be bad and vice versa, but that’s science for ya
