Night and Day

Timing can make a big difference. The grocery store closest to my house is a nightmare when it's crowded. The first time you try to round a corner you become instantly stressed out. You bump into someone, then you step aside, then 3 more people come through, then someone behind you squeezes by. The aisles are narrow and cramped. The checkout lines spill into the only available walkway between aisles and the list goes on.

If you're there when it isn't crowded, you barely notice. But go at the wrong time, and it's insta-unhappiness. Come to think of it, "crowded" and "happiness" are never synonymous.

Get happy. Lose the crowds.
