Over recent years I have had the good fortune to attend a number of Happiness and its Causes conferences now held in Australia annually. As on previous occasions, the presentations, events and activities this year were informative and the general atmosphere really motivating and uplifting.
Below are some significant results from research provided by Lyubomirski and King based in the US who have written several papers that provide a convincing rationale for us to look on the sunny side of life no matter how grey the day…..
Are more productive at work and more creative
Make more money and have superior jobs
Are better leaders and negotiators
Are more likely to marry and to have fulfilling marriages, and less likely to divorce
Have more friends and social support
Have stronger immune systems, are physically healthier, and even live longer
Are more helpful and philanthropic
Cope better with stress and trauma
Having a positive approach to life regardless of the challenges is likely to help boost your health, wealth and happiness!
