The Theory of Balanceology suggests that all of us need some form of enjoyment in life. Happiness and to be happy is a huge part of living. We all need times of fun, play, pleasure, and even a certain degree of hedonism. Historically and philosophically there has been two main views to conceptualize hedonism: 1.) short-term hedonism, and 2.) long-term hedonism. Over the next two posts I will go into greater detail in defining these two views. And, finally enjoyment is a matter of balancing out our needs from our wants (review previous posts on related to needs and wants).
