Motivational Mondays: Ten Myths about Happiness from the Happiness Project

This article has been hiding in my reading list for a while.  Today it just so happens that I clicked on the reading list and scrolled down.  My lucky day!

This list is from the Happiness Project’s Ten Myths about Happiness by Gretchen Rubin.  If you click on the link, you can read the author’s take on each myth.

No. 1: Happy people are annoying and stupid.

No. 2: Nothing changes a person’s happiness level much.

No. 3: Venting anger relieves it.

No. 4: You’ll be happier if you insist on “the best.”

No. 5: A “treat” will cheer you up.

No. 6: Money can’t buy happiness.

No. 7: Doing “random acts of kindness” brings happiness.

No. 8: You’ll be happy as soon as you…

No. 9: Spending some time alone will make you feel better.

No. 10: The biggest myth: It’s selfish to try to be happier.

Bonus pics and happiness!
