Over the last 15 years, experts have come to realize that the science of happiness is a serious and legitimate area of study, with a great deal of validated research and studies supporting it. Here’s what we know, developed by Happify, a new website designed to teach anyone how to enjoy a richer, fuller life utilizing the science of happiness:
- The brain we’re born with can be changed. Technically speaking, they call that neuroplasticity. (You can teach an old brain new tricks.)
- We can change it by adopting new thought patterns, by training our brain as if it were a muscle, to overcome negative thoughts.
- All of us are hard-wired for negativity (blame evolution!) but can profoundly benefit from learning new ways to react and deal with everyday stresses.
- It doesn’t take a lot of effort to make a real difference in your life. A few simple and even entertaining mental diversions will change things.
Thinking about all you have to appreciate can boost your happiness and your overall sense of well being, according to psychologists. The benefits of practicing gratitude are nearly endless. People who regularly practice gratitude by taking time to notice and reflect upon the things they’re thankful for experience more positive emotions, feel more alive, sleep better, express more compassion and kindness, and even have stronger immune systems.
