New Science Of Happiness

A couple of posts back i recommended you all to grab a copy of the latest Time magazine. It has a great article on "Happiness". I shall post bits and pieces from the article that i personally found fascinating.

"Once your basic needs are met (financially) additional income does little to increase your satisfaction with life. A good education nor a hig IQ paves the road to happiness.Youth? No,again. Infact older people are more satisfied with their lives than the young.They are also less prone to dark moods. It is FRIENDSHIP and SOCIAL SKILLS that raises the level of happiness".

to be continued.
