When you keep yourself simple, you can find satisfaction in the little things, and don't necessarily need to seek stimulation from risky, more complex behavior.
Recently, my disposable razor was worn out, so I wanted to use a new one. Before I threw out the old one, I wanted to cover the blade with the slide-on cover from the new one.
However, the lotion strip on the old razor was peeling off, and it kept me from sliding on the cover. My first thought was to try and hold down the strip while sliding on the cover, but I was worried that my finger may get cut by the blade.
Then, I thought to slide the cover from the other side. Not only did it slide on, but it pushed the lotion strip into place.
Granted, this is a very trivial problem, but it gave me a sense of satisfaction.
