Gretchen Rubin writes The Happiness Project blog, a wonderful collection of ideas on happiness which includes everyone from ancient sages to new-age gurus, spiritual advisers and pop psych touters. Rubin shares her experiences “test-driving” these ideas and has written a book which will be released sometime this year. Earlier this week, she recapped her 10 Myths about Happiness, along with links to her thoughts on each one.
Ten Myths about Happiness — Which Do You Believe?
Each day for two weeks, I posted about Ten Happiness Myths. Today, for your reading convenience, I’m posting the entire list, with links. ~ Gretchen Rubin
No. 3: Venting anger relieves it.
No. 5: A “treat” will cheer you up.
No. 6: Money can’t buy happiness.
No. 10: The biggest myth: It’s selfish to try to be happier.
What do you think of her list? Are there ones you’d add or modify? Which ones strike you in some way?
