Happiness and the Brain

Did you catch the section on “happiness” in a recent TIME (July 8-15, 2013)? It started out with a catchy sentence: “If you’re an American and you’re not having fun, it just might be your own fault.” Here are few findings mentioned in the article:

  • “Marriage does contribute to bliss; it’s a better predictor of happiness than having money or children.

  • “About 80% of young people who say they have a good relationship with their parents are also happier with life in general.

  • “Homosexual men (2013 study) experience less depression than heterosexual men, as long as they had come out.”
    Happiness is a brain state . . .
