This Funzing Experience:
The pursuit of happiness is a legitimate goal, even enshrined in the
U.S. Constitution. But what makes us happy? Psychology has devoted much of its history to working out what makes us mentally ill but it now has some pretty good answers.

We should not assume that other people are responsible for our
unhappiness because of the way they treat us. That is usually not
true – the matter is largely in our own hands (and genes).

Money does not make us happy, though spending it on others might.
Nor does happiness come in bottles or pills. Genuine routes to well-
being include positive thinking, a sense of proportion, humour,
meaning and self-worth, outdoor activity (“green exercise”) and intimate relationships.

Most importantly, love has to be earned – not demanded as a right. Those who focus on making others happy enjoy happiness themselves as a by-product.

Dr Wilson discusses the research basis for these conclusions.
