The Happiness Advantage
“Aristotle said that happiness is the end and aim of our existence. The majority of people across all continents and cultures say that happiness is one of their most important goals in life, and it doesn’t just reward the person who finds it, but it also is rewarding for their family, for the workplace, for the community, nation, and even their whole society.”
Why Is This Important?
“A lot of research is coming out around the science of happiness, and it shows that happiness does not just make you feel better, but it also boosts your energy, your creativity, your immune system. It improves your relationships, it makes you more productive at work and it even leads to a longer life.”
