The Key To Happiness Is To Not Try So Hard

March 14, 2018

One of the most important things I’ve learned in life so far is that happiness is not a destination! It’s not some reward you obtain after checking everything off your list, and it’s definitely not some everlasting feeling.

But what does science have to say about all of this? A recent study in Psychonomic Bulletin & Review found that people who try too hard be happy actually wind up being up unhappy, because they spend too much of their time chasing happiness.

So instead of putting so much effort into trying to be happy, the actual key to happiness is to relax! Enjoy the beauty of the world around you, and eventually happiness will find its way to you.
