Eudaemonic Happiness

“A consumer society, in short, encourages us to spend money we don’t have, on products we don’t need, for a happiness that won’t last. The reason such happiness does not last lies in the fundamental difference between hedonic happiness, a momentary feeling of pleasurable sensation, and eudaemonic happiness, which is the lasting feeling brought by having lived a good, meaningful and worthy life.”
