Happiness: User Instructions

Tal Ben-Shahar, Psychology Lecturer at Harvard:

" there are two kinds of people who don't experience painful emotions [...] They are the psychopaths and the dead"
"three times a week of 30 to 40 minutes of exercise is equivalent to some of our most powerful psychiatric drugs"
"people who [...] each night before going to sleep write at least five things for which they are grateful [...] are happier, more optimistic, more successful, more likely to achieve their goals, physically healthier; it actually strengthens our immune system, and are more generous and benevolent toward others"
"One of the most important things that we can do in our modern world is to simplify, to do less rather than more"

Makes you wonder, doesn't it?
