Happiness Overrated?

A piece in the Wall Street Journal – Is Happiness Overrated? – cites a University of Wisconsin study that the “relentless pursuit of happiness may be doing us more harm than good.”  The researchers say that focusing too much on feeling happy can actually reduce happiness.

I can’t disagree with that.

Happiness can be elusive.  “Chasing” after it makes happiness even more elusive.  It is something that usually sneaks up on us.  We’re in the middle of an activity and suddenly realize we’re happy.

Your Happiness Power is designed to help you recognize those things that can help you increase those moments when happiness sneaks up and taps you on the shoulder.

You don’t need to chase after happiness.  Just stay open and aware and you’ll find happiness showing up more and more.

To your happiness!
