I live life to maximize my own pleasure / happiness, and minimize pain, suffering, and doing without. So, I seek lots of whatever brings me pleasure: food, drink, consumer goods, exotic travel, interactions with friends, sexual gratification, music, sports, games, gambling, recreational drug use, etc. (Note: hedonists are short-term oriented and neglect their health in embracing “eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we die.” Some, the more affluent, may even more selfishly indulge in pleasure seeking but do so by finding/creating another world where they can better escape from painful realities poor folks face.


I like this advice: "You only get one body. How well you care for it—or don’t care for it—makes a big difference in the length and quality of your life." (Note: those who value health will need to take care of their body's immediate physical & mental health needs. And educate themselves as to long-term needs based on sound medical science. Good nutrition, exercise, plenty of sleep, etc can lessen both fear of, and likelihood of, illness. Meditating, having friends/ emotional support can help with stress which can cause illness.) All of this is wise from both coping and, with high cost of health care, financial perspectives.
