the conclusion of the study is very interesting:

"Being outdoors, near the sea, on a warm, sunny weekend afternoon is the perfect spot for most. In fact, participants were found to be substantially happier outdoors in all natural environments than they were in urban environments".

10 Things to Give Up in Exchange for Happiness. 

donhornsby's curator insight, October 29, 2013 7:55 AM

(From the article): Give up control. Control is an illusion. We live in an out of control world. Learn to embrace the new and welcome change; otherwise you'll grow old through your own rigidity. Learn to let go.

eli's curator insight, April 22, 6:39 AM

type of content: article

this article brings a couple of very important changes we should make our lifes in order to be happier' for example:

1. Give up caring what other people think of you. I know it seems counter intuitive as we humans are primal pack animals that don't want to be cast from the village, but spending time worrying what others think, is a waste of energy. You'll never please everyone and it's none of your business what others think of you.
