Shawn Anchor – the science of happiness part one

Shawn Anchor spent years researching into the science of happiness. He talks about the role of perception as being a key tool that we can actually use to increase our happiness by focusing on what is positive about our lives or any situation we find ourselves in. He also talks about the importance of our relationships as a factor that has a big impact on our happiness levels, and poses the question, how is it that depression is on the increase? I believe that we can increase our levels of happiness by being vigilant about what we allow into our minds and by rooting out any patterns of thoughts, ideas and beliefs that actually generate unhappiness.
