An encouraging study was recently published demonstrating that people are happier now then they were in 1981. Here’s a link to the article appearing in this month’s Perspectives on Psychological Science. Some of the interesting findings are that Denmark is the happiest country and that Zimbabwe is the least happy. That makes sense given recent events in that African nation. Also interesting, the U.S. ranks 16th on the happiness spectrum. Some factors contributing to happiness are strong friendships and doing things for others. Turns out being altruistic is actually pretty selfish in a way. The study does not cite listening to KDFC as one of the keys to happiness but I think that just goes without saying!
