The Happiness Hypothesis.

Happiness Hypothesis1

In the shortest conclusion, this is a good book, at least to me. It is not just another self help book that puts a smile on your face. The author explores in-depth the theories as to what really makes us pursue happiness and how we can improve if we don’t by putting together traditional thinking with science. It is a deep combination of research, philosophy and psychology. It is thought provoking and it certainly makes me think, and rethink.

Ultimately, it is our thoughts that make us happy. They are either constructive or destructive. It is how we train our minds.

I like 2 of his quotes from the book.

Quote 1:
If you are in passionate love and want to celebrate your passion, read poetry.
If your ardor has calmed and you want to understand your evolving relationship, read psychology.
But if you have just ended a relationship and would like to believe you are better off without love, read philosophy.


Quote 2:
What we are today comes from our thoughts of yesterday, and our present thoughts build our life of tomorrow: our life is the creation of our mind. —Buddha

How true.
