Cultivating happiness often misunderstood

Cultivating happiness often misunderstood | Gelukswetenschap | Scoop.it
The concept of maximizing happiness has been explored by researchers, who have found that pursuing concrete 'giving' goals rather than abstract ones leads to greater satisfaction. One path to happiness is through concrete, specific goals of benevolence -- like making someone smile or increasing recycling -- instead of following similar but more abstract goals -- like making someone happy or saving the environment.

De wetenschap achter Megahit 'Happy'

De wetenschap achter Megahit 'Happy' | Gelukswetenschap | Scoop.it
Dat Pharrell Williams een muzikaal genie is weten we ondertussen wel. Vroeger domineerde hij de hitlijsten toen hij samen met Chad Hugo producersteam The Neptunes vormde. Daarbij had hij success met zijn band N*E*R*D en onlangs scoorde hij megahits met ‘Get Lucky’ en… ‘Happy’. Dit nummer is vandaag de grootste Top 40-hit aller tijden geworden. Pharrell staat inmiddels 35 weken in de Top 40, waaronder vier weken op nummer 1, en stoot daarmee Gotye’s ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’ van de troon.Waarom worden we blij van ‘Happy’? Waarom willen we het liedje blijven horen? En waarom blijft het zo in je hoofd hangen? We vragen het neuropsycholoog Erik Scherder.
