The Keys to Happiness


*Quick shout out to Shane Parrish at Farnam Street.

The HAPPINESS ADVANTAGE by Shawn Achor talks about THE KEYS TO HAPPINESS.

At 30,000′: Success doesn’t make us happy.  Happiness makes us a success.

“When we are positive, our brains become more engaged, creative, motivated, energetic, resilient, and productive at work.”

Here’s a shorthand of some of Achor’s thoughts on becoming happier.

  • Meditate. “Research shows that regular meditation can permanently re-wire the brain to raise levels of happiness, lower stress and even improve immune function.”
  • Do something nice for someone.
  • Invest in your social relationships.
  • Get outside.
  • Spend money on experiences not stuff.
