10 Steps to Happiness

December 18, 2008 at 9:48 am Leave a comment

AlterNet gleans several years of research from the field of positive psychology to reveal “10 Things Science Says will Make You Happy.” The list, paraphrased, is:

  1. Stop and enjoy the present; live in the now.
  2. Don’t compare yourself to the Joneses.
  3. Don’t obsess over money.
  4. Aspire to leave an imprint.
  5. Be intrinsically motivated on the job.
  6. Build a supportive network of family and friends.
  7. Act optimistic even if you have to fake it.
  8. Having an attitude of gratitude.
  9. Exercise is all good.
  10. Givers gain. So give some more.

It’s worth reading the whole story.
