21 Habits Of Supremely Happy People | positive psychology | Scoop.it

John Michel's curator insight, September 16, 2013 3:08 PM
The defining characteristic of pessimists is that they tend to believe bad events will last a long time, will undermine everything they do, and are their own fault. The optimists, who are confronted with the same hard knocks of this world, think about misfortune in the opposite way. They tend to believe defeat is just a temporary setback, that its causes are confined to this one case. The optimists believe defeat is not their fault: Circumstances, bad luck, or other people brought it about. Such people are unfazed by defeat. Confronted by a bad situation, they perceive it as a challenge and try harder.
Dr Sarah Allen's curator insight, November 17, 2013 3:52 PM

It is as simple as it sounds: just trying to be happy can boost your emotional well-being, according to two studies recently published in The Journal of Positive Psychology. Those who actively tried to feel happier in the studies reported the highest level of positive moods, making a case for thinking yourself happy. Probably not enough if you are moderately to severly depressed but worth a try if you just need a happiness boost.

Loneliness Is The Most Common Ailment In The World | positive psychology | Scoop.it
Not only does our addiction to technology affect our stress-levels and lead to back pain, but it is also causing loneliness and low self-esteem. At least that's the message from Shimi Cohen's video 'The Innovation of Loneliness'.

Matt Walsh says:That's our entire economic system: buy things. Everybody buy. It doesn't matter what you buy. Just buy. It doesn't matter if you don't have money. Just buy. Our entire civilization now rests on the assumption that, no matter what else happens, we will all continue to buy lots and lots of things. Buy, buy, buy, buy, buy. And then buy a little more. Don't create, or produce, or discover -- just buy. Never save, never invest, never cut back -- just buy. Buy what you don't need with money you don't have... Buy like you breathe, only more frequently
