Can an app actually make you happier?? Read on to find out....
What is happiness? And how can we achieve more of it?
Many of us look for happiness outside of ourselves. The fancy house, the well-paid job, the attractive partner. If we can just keep on improving those things, we’ll be happy, right?
Well... to an extent that’s true. Our happiness IS partially dependent on our external circumstances, but science shows us that if we want to change our levels of happiness, We can have four times as much impact if we look inside ourselves. How we think, feel and act matters much more than what we have.
While the thrill of shiny new possessions dulls with time, lasting happiness can be found only by changing how we think about the world. It begins in our minds...and the cool about the mind is that it can be trained just like a muscle.
And that’s where we come in.
