New Study on Link Between Happiness and Contentment
Shankar Vedantam in the Washington Post on October 1st discusses a new study concerning the effect of positive and negative events on people reporting being "generally happy". A high level of happiness, the article reports, causes an increase in expected happiness and thereby diminishing returns from positive events and increased disappointment in negative events. The article also discusses possible cultural links to attitudes toward happiness as well as genetic predisposition to this condition.

For more information on genetic and cultural links to happiness as well as further discussion on causes of happiness, watch
HOW HAPPY CAN YOU BE? by Line Hatland.
