Why be happy?

Why be happy?

Although I sincerely believe happiness is the ultimate goal in life there are many who for various reasons don’t rate it as highly as I do. I am, in most situations, an open minded person but I find this a little hard to understand as there is so much research linking happiness to success, health, better quality relationships and many other tangible benefits.

What I’m thinking of doing is compiling a list of all the ways people can benefit from happiness and I’d like you to help me.

So please respond with you favourite reasons and your answers to these questions:

Why should I be happy?

What are the benefits of happiness?

Is seeking happiness really worth the effort?

I happily look forward to your contributions.
