Is Happiness Overrated?

Is Happiness Overrated?

 

Some of the newest evidence suggests that people who focus on living with a sense of purpose as they age are more likely to remain cognitively intact, have better mental health and even live longer than people who focus on achieving feelings of happiness. Shirley S. Wang. The Wall Street Journal. 03/14/11. (Also see: Emotional Adjustment)

I love this article, Janey. Thank you for bringing it to our attention.

 

I think it really merits dwelling on the idea that it isn't happiness that counts, but rather a sense of purpose. Many of us might find happiness as elusive and fleeting as the wind, but a sense of purpose is something that we can all muster up, if we decide to.

 

Two thumbs up!


Warm Hugs,
