What makes people truely happy

· happy,Lifestyle,advice

As I mentioned last week, the wealthiest countries in the world do not have the happiest people in the world. In fact, one research paper revealed that it is the egalitarian countries that have the happiest people in the world.

That it is probably due to the fact that those countries are based on the principle that all people are equal and deserve equal rights and opportunities.

It is the simple things that make people happy such as: being grateful; living in the present moment; doing acts of kindness; being generous; seeing the glass half full; looking for the positive in most situations; spending time with loved ones and something as simple as smiling.

The research also shows that happier people score lower on several measures of psychological issues, such as anxiety and depression.

This is important, as many children with ADHD also suffer from both anxiety and depression. So, doing things that makes your child happy is important to their mental well-being. I am not talking about buying them more possessions, I am talking about doing more positive activities together.

Furthermore, the research has shown clearly that happy children learn better and they are more creative.
