TAILWINDS | INCREASING WELLBEING
Higher energy prices have not only negative effects. Less commuting is certainly a life improvement: work (as in earning income and life pleasure) gets a huge negative facet less: commuting. Less commuting travel each day, is equal to less stress each day, is equal to each day more time for the good things in life, is equal to more rooting in living surrounding. We get this all for free by less commuting by higher energy prices.
