With the lockdown 4.0 ending today, this kind of weather seems to be the harbinger of good times. Whatever relief an air-conditioner provides from the summer heat, nothing compares to natural cool breeze. It just rejuvenates and refreshes you in a way that’s unmatched.
We also completed week 4 of our Yale online program – The psychology of well being, through Coursera and coincidentally week 4 talks of experiences versus things.

Prof. Santos used the term “hedonic adaptation” to explain the above difference.
