Do you know that happiness is a choice? Happiness, like a skill, can be developed. Happiness, like a muscle, can be exercised. And happiness breeds happiness! It also fosters health, satisfaction, and a deep joy in living.
The recipe for happiness is different for each and every one of us. Yet research shows that play, new experiences, treasuring friends and family, meaningful activities, and appreciating what we have are some key ways that people experience happiness. It is also true that we human beings are social creatures. Around the world, the researchers have discovered that folks who spend considerable time experiencing community and bringing qualities like altruism, compassion, love and joy to community may be the happiest of all!
