Don't Worry, Be Happy!

Did you know happiness may make you more successful?

Did you know by being happy you are more likely to seek out and take on new goals in life?

This could be because happy people often experience positive moods, which prompts activity toward new goals and building new resources for those goals.

Researchers found happy people benefit from several characteristics that make them prone to success:

  • Positive perception of themselves and others
  • Creativity
  • Highly social behavior
  • A strong immune system
  • Effective coping skills

It had previously been thought that happiness flowed from success and accomplishments in life, but that isn't always the case.

Happy people are more likely to have fulfilling marriages and relationships, higher incomes, superior work performance, community involvement, robust health and even a long life.

When people feel happy they tend to be more confident, optimistic, and energetic and others find them likable and sociable. So in the end, happy people are able to benefit from these perceptions.

Saint Valentine is known for stirring up the so called "Love Bug", how about if Albright College stirs up the "Happy Bug".

Have a great February.
