“Happiness is a warm puppy.”– Charles Schultz
I watched “Happy- A Documentary” movie yesterday. I really like the research and message of this movie.
Why are some people more satisfied than others? There is a lot of useful research being performed to better understand something as subjective as “happiness”.
I feel some of the researchers miss some things but my training is in economics. In many ways, my profession is the discovery of personal happiness and strategies to help individuals reach personal happiness.
From the movie I learned that happiness is achieving something you value. By achieving something you value, it releases chemicals into your brain. Those chemicals are a source of happiness and they keep you healthy.
