11 Brilliant Hacks To Living A Happier Life
Happiness is something that we all strive for, yet many of us find it challenging to grasp and even harder to maintain. Especially during these difficult economic times, happiness can feel like it is hiding just behind next week’s paycheck, a new job, or a distant raise.

However, as Dr. Robert Putnam of Harvard University recently pointed out, “money alone can buy you happiness, but not much.” In fact, social relationships are the strongest predictors of happiness, much stronger than income or wealth.It appears that happiness has less to do with money than we might imagine, and more to do with the people around us, how we live our lives, the way spend our time, and how we perceive ourselves and understand our life experiences. Self-esteem is also intrinsically connected to happiness.Does having an optimistic attitude help? What about thinking about things, people or experiences that make you smile?

Based on the latest research in psychology and her experience as both a psychologist trying to understand happiness, and as a human being searching for her own happiness, Dr Kelly Neff shares a brilliant list of 11 ways to live a happier life — that have nothing to do with money! Enjoy and share with those in your life that make you happy!
