To many, “happiness” has always been covered in a veil of mystery. It appears in the most unexpected places and seemingly unpredictable ways, like the moment of joy in finding a long lost $10 bill in your coat pocket or that high when you give away the change in your pocket to a person in need. “Happiness” feels simply awesome, but it is much more than just a great feeling.
What’s so fabulous about happiness?
We want to take you on an adventure to unlock these mysteries behind the science of happiness and show you how critical happiness is to the most important parts of your life, from your health and career to your relationships and brain power. We’ll answer questions like “What can baseball cards and nuns’ diaries tell us about living longer?” and “How can happiness improve our romantic relationships and our careers?” You’ll learn from multi-disciplinary research spanning the fields of psychology and neuroscience, to evolutionary biology and economics.
Sooner or later, you’ll realize what leading scientists now know – “happiness” is linked to everything that is important in your life. Yes, everything!
So join us on this adventure to uncover the science of happiness in our MindHacks blog. At the same time, sign-up to take action and try out Perked!’s “Daily Dose of Happiness”. The Android mobile app is now available for download on Android. (iphone coming soon!)
