We begin to take things for granted over time because of a scientific phenomenon called “Hedonic Adaptation.”
Hedonic – having to do with the senses
Adaptation – become accustomed to
So, our senses literally become accustomed to stuff over time
On the positve side, this helps us adapt to negative circumstances but it can also cause us to no longer appreciate what’s important to us.
To overcome hedonic adaptation we can employ another scientific phenomenon called Behavioral Economics.

I sent a question through customer service (Amelia). She said it would be answered today. However, it was not. I do not interact with Facebook and cannot submit a question there. I hope to have an answer soon. Thank you.
