There's More to Life Than Being Happy

There's More to Life Than Being Happy | DIGITAL CULTURE | Scoop.it
Meaning comes from the pursuit of more complex things than happiness
anafpires's insight:

Lido transversalmente embora o título seja sugestivo, sublinho " Meaning is not only about transcending the self, but also about transcending the present moment -- which is perhaps the most important finding of the study, according to the researchers. While happiness is an emotion felt in the here and now, it ultimately fades away, just as all emotions do; positive affect and feelings of pleasure are fleeting. The amount of time people report feeling good or bad correlates with happiness but not at all with meaning."

A must read.

Is there a difference between a happy life and a meaningful life? How do the happy life and the meaningful life differ?  

In a new study, which will be published this year in a forthcoming issue of the Journal of Positive Psychology, psychological scientists found that a meaningful life and happy life overlap in certain ways, but are ultimately very different. Leading a happy life is associated with being a "taker" while leading a meaningful life corresponds with being a "giver.

Take this: "Happiness without meaning characterizes a relatively shallow, self-absorbed or even selfish life, in which things go well, needs and desire are easily satisfied, and difficult or taxing entanglements are avoided".
