How might we include small happiness into high-speed life?

Problem

Nowadays, heavy work and low work-life balance make a great number of people become overwhelmed about their work. The overworking time brings a series of consequences. Fatigue and numbness about the life the most obvious and direct one. To solve this problem, I began to seek an opportunity of bringing happiness back to life and also encouraging people to enjoy life in less extra time.
