A dear friend–who blogs at Grapes into Wine directs me to a fascinating article called, “There’s More to Life Than Being Happy.” I immediately ask my students to read this text because we’re grappling with what it means to pursue happiness.
In this article (which will take you just a few moments to read), you’ll find what researchers argue is better than happiness.
A meaningful life, studies show, makes you feel better than happiness does.
Can you believe it? Self-sacrifice, aligning with a higher cause, and giving rather than taking actually is better for your well-being than the pursuit of happiness.
Living with flair means we seek meaning over happiness.
