The question of what makes people happy has been discussed and pursued since ancient times, and its pursuit has even been guaranteed by our forefathers in the U.S. Constitution. Despite happiness' long history of importance and its assurance by our political foundations, few of us truly appreciate just how we can increase our happiness or understand how to go about doing it. Why are some people happier than others? And how can we achieve happiness?
First, it's important to understand that some people are naturally happy. Although the exact level will vary from individual to individual, it appears that up to about 50 percent of our happiness levels are preset by genetics or our environment (called our happiness set-point). But that’s good, because it also means that about 40 to 50 percent of our happiness is within our power to raise or lower. In the following series of caches, each cache will focus on a specific idea to living a happier life. This key to happiness will be found in the small wooded area behind the building at 1831 Stevens St. in Rhinelander. The cache itself is located inside a 8" x 8" box that is located in an "anti-muggle safe". Once at ground zero, the "safe" will be easy to spot. I have put a combination lock on the "safe" to prevent easy muggle access. The combo for the lock is 2-3-4.

Good luck and remember: Money can't buy love, but cache can bring happiness.
