“There’s something wrong with me if I’m not happy all the time”

There is nothing wrong with you if you aren’t happy all the time. No one can be happy all the time. In fact, a temporary feeling of giddiness or being high on life is often mistaken for happiness. 

True happiness is more of an inner peace thing.

7 IDEAS

Nations don't perceive well-being the same

According to the United Nations, Finland is the happiest people in the world. But, for the World Happiness Report to compare self-reports of happiness, they assume that the world defines happiness in the same way.

Research on how people across the globe perceive happiness shows significant differences among nations. Understanding the diversity can help you understand yourself - how you differ, what you might do about it, or making peace with it.

Our relationship with money is emotional

Money is so much more than dollars and cents. Our relationship with money is emotional. Hopes and fears, guilt, and shame can all play a significant role in our financial life.

And those feelings can be tied to lots of things: our upbringing, our environment, and all the money messaging in the world and the media.

Our minds are more than spreadsheets

After a year of holding back on festivals, plays, or going out without concern about a deadly virus, many of us will spend beyond our limits if we don't prepare for the powerful emotions that will sweep through us.

Our minds are not just based on mathematical equations but mixed up with feelings, reactions, and mental shortcuts. Behavioural economics identified over 100 ways people from all walks of life fail to think straight when it comes to money.

Conservatorship/ guardianship

Conservatorship/guardianship has recently come under the spotlight with the documentary about Britney Spears, along with the ongoing hearings about her own conservatorship.

Historically, conservatorships/guardianships were designed to protect people with decreasing faculties from those who want to take advantage of them by securing their resources. Independent third parties are assigned legal authority to make decisions on their behalf to best preserve their wellbeing and financial interests.
