Is it a surprise Psychology Today did another hatchet job on Happiness in their January/February 2009 cover feature?
They begin with a sad assessment of happiness in America and emphasize we are glummer and more confused now than ever before.
Psychology Today cannot define Happiness, describing it only as "more like satisfied and content".
If Psychology Today cannot define happiness, how can they help you achieve happiness?
Clear goals help define the steps to attain them. Knowing what happiness is helps you determine ways to achieve happiness.
The Happiness Habit® definition of a Happy Life is "Pleasant & Pleasing, Purposeful & Productive, Prosperous (meaning whatever you are working on is bearing positive rewards) & Spiritually Successful (meaning living in harmony with your surroundings by the highest and best values.)"
What's happening here? Did they offer one good action you can take to be happy or happier in their Happiness feature article? Expect Psychology Today and the psycho therapeutic herd to confuse and obfuscate the science of happiness.
