The Science of Happiness

Posted on

A human issue for today's thoughts..... Happiness.

All of us want it and strive toward it, addressing it in different ways. Children are taught fairy tales where people live happily ever after. That isn't reality of course, but we still seek that very thing.

Watching and listening to Nancy Etcoff presenting a TED talk on Happiness was very interesting and enlightening. What I got out of her talk is the following:

  • We are programmed to seek happiness.
  • High levels of happiness are unsustainable.
  • Small increases in happiness over time provides a more general happiness level over that period of time. Or as a friend put it, "Give yourself fun things to look forward to.

I have always been a believer that massage enables our bodies to disengage from feeling of stress and engages us to feel a much better sense of well being, at least for a bit of time. It is a great way to feel better!

I have to express some thanks to this writer for rescuing me from this type of situation. Right after researching throughout the world wide web and coming across ideas that were not powerful, I believed my entire life was done. Living minus the approaches to the problems you've fixed by means of your good guide is a serious case, as well as the ones which might have adversely affected my entire career if I hadn't noticed the blog. Your actual talents and kindness in maneuvering everything was helpful. I'm not sure what I would have done if I hadn't encountered such a point like this. It's possible to at this time look ahead to my future. Thanks so much for your specialized and result oriented guide. I won't hesitate to propose your blog to anyone who wants and needs care on this area.
