The concept

It all began with this guy 👉 

Mr. Epicurus was an Ancient Greek philosopher who founded the Epicureanism, a system of philosophy that the main focus was pursuing happiness and pleasure through the good little things of life that are not necessarily expensive, or hard to achieve. 

If you devote yourself to going out and eating fine foods, it's because of your epicureanism. Although today this word is commonly used to mean 'dive' into excessive pleasurable activity, that's not the way Epicurus described his philosophy.

 

In fact, he emphasised the importance of a simple life and quiet pleasures. ​ 

For him, the pleasure was to be obtained through things such as:

  • Community

  • Friendship

  • Knowledge

  • Living a virtuous life

  • Living a temperate life

  • Moderation in all things

By considering ourselves both Epicureans and curious individuals, we have named our project "Happycurious" to reflect the joy derived from the little, meaningful aspects of life that bring happiness and fulfillment.
