In Pursuit Of HAPPINESS...

Being HAPPY could add years to your life. Agree with this?

While happiness doesn't cure illness, it does help healthy people live about 7.5 to 10 years longer... (according to an analysis of more than 30 studies). The Australian psychologist Timothy Sharp says that happiness is something that can be learnt, much like healthy eating habits.

Ways To Get HAPPY...
  • Set aside a worry time, such as half an hour after work. If worries come up at other times, put them out of your mind until worry time.
  • Practice random acts of kindness. Research shows altruism is a powerful catalyst for happiness.
  • Redefine happiness. Some people think happiness only means pure joy, but it also includes emotions such as contentment. Work out what happiness means to you.
  • Be curious. Set aside time to do something new, such as taking up a new sport or visiting a different town.
