Happiness and Science Finally Get it Right!
Don’t you just love it when you get something right?
Scientists have finally made a measurable connection between positive thinking and happiness. More than money, family, pets, or security, what makes us most happy is actually going through a process of noticing what makes us happy, and then try to think WHY those happy things occured.
The result, common sense tells us (and now science too) is that this type of exercise is that through our ENTIRE day we concentrate on the good things that happen. (Because we’ll have to report them later.) And when we focus on the good, the bad becomes less important.

I’m so glad for this news… this will be one of the three things today that made ME happy.
