    Happiness ... something we all strive for ?

    Post by Jan1 on Thu Oct 26 2017, 18:30

    We each have our own favourite things to make us feel happy.
    That could be family, friends, enjoying a simple walk, listening to music or perhaps something more material.

    Albert Einstein once said:

    "A calm and humble life will bring more happiness than the pursuit of success and the constant restlessness that comes with it."

    According to Wikipedia "In psychology, happiness is a mental or emotional state of well-being which can be defined by, among others, positive or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy. Happy mental states may reflect judgements by a person about their overall well-being.

    Since the 1960s, happiness research has been conducted in a wide variety of scientific disciplines, including gerontology, social psychology, clinical and medical research and happiness economics.

    In philosophy, happiness is translated from the Greek concept of eudaimonia, and refers to the good life, or flourishing, as opposed to an emotion.

    Happiness is a fuzzy concept. Some related concepts include well-being, quality of life, flourishing, and contentment.

    In philosophy and (western) religion, happiness may be defined in terms of living a good life, or flourishing, rather than simply as an emotion. Happiness in this sense was used to translate the Greek eudaimonia, and is still used in virtue ethics. There has been a transition over time from emphasis on the happiness of virtue to the virtue of happiness.

    In psychology, happiness is a mental or emotional state of well-being which can be defined by, among others, positive or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy. Since the turn of the millennium, psychologists have increasingly become interested in developing an approach to human flourishing. This is seen prominently in the work of Martin Seligman, Ed Diener and Ruut Veenhoven, and in the international developmental and medical research of Paul Anand.

    Do you think that makes happiness sound confusing?!

    Whatever makes you happy, and I think it's so often the simpler things in life, I wish you a Happy Weekend. Smile

    Talking of happiness, my taste buds are!!!
    We've just enjoyed some St Agur Blue Cheese with some low carb crackers ... oh, yes ... did I also mention a nice chilled glass of Pinot Grigio!

    All the best Jan

    My recent happiness has come from chicken, pheasant, ground beef, ground pork and numerous vegetables, herbs and spices. Oh and halloumi lightly fried in EVOO with a thickly buttered oatcake as a snack. Oh and ASPARAGUS!

    A LOL moment - a Canadian was prescribed an antidepressant - Wellbutrin, still I think unavailable in the UK except as Zyban for smoking cessation.

    There was a warning on the pack

    "MAY CAUSE AN UNUSUAL SENSE OF WELLBEING"
