What Science Says About Happiness

Dan Pink linked to this article on Alternet titled 10 Things Science Says Will Make You Happy.

The piece is really good but Dan’s provided a more interesting set of headers:

  1. Stop and enjoy the present.
  2. Don’t compare yourself to the Joneses.
  3. Don’t obsess over money.
  4. Aspire to leave an imprint.
  5. Be intrinsically motivated on the job.
  6. Build a supportive network of family and friends
  7. Act optimistic even if you have to fake it.
  8. Gratitude, baby, gratitude.
  9. Exercise is all good.
  10. Givers gain.

Great things to think about as we head into the New Year.

Happy New Year, everybody!
