Happiness: the sum of positive emotions

Even if you cannot change your broader environment, you can still do small things to create positive emotions.

  • You can put pictures that trigger pleasant memories in your home where you pass often.
  • Research shows that having green plants around is good.
  • Cutting down on mindless TV will help.
  • A front porch is better than a back deck.
  • The happiest people are socializing six to seven hours a day. Even with social media, if you think of friends like long-term adventures, it kind of meets the experience-focused criterion.
  • Who you spend time with has a huge impact on your happiness. Proactively find happy friends who like to laugh.
