Want To Feel Happy All The Time? Here’s Why You Shouldn’t…

It’s a Tweeter!

Hello ADs,

We think Pharrell Williams has a lot to answer for…

His hit ‘Happy’ may be a great floor filler at weddings and the like, but if it comes on the radio when you’re feeling low, it can really bum you out.

The problem is, there’s such a massive pressure these days to feel ‘happy’ all the time.

Magazine headlines are always promising us “10 Ways To Feel Happier Right Now”, and the whole wellness industry is saturated with foods, juices and quick tips to help you access a constant state of elation (we’ve even been guilty of ‘happy-peddling’ ourselves, too…)

What we’re beginning to learn, however, is that there’s actually a lot more to life than being happy all the time – in fact, happiness is quite over-rated in many ways.

In today’s Life Nugget, we explain why ‘constant happiness’ is a terrible goal to have, and what you should be aiming to experience instead.

Whilst we’d probably all agree that feeling happy is an enjoyable emotion, we’d never be able to fully appreciate this feeling if we had nothing to compare it to. In other words:

When you’ve watched the Nugget, we’d really love to hear your take on this subject, so do join in the discussion in the comments below.

And, just remember:

Not everyone’s as happy as their Facebook & Instagram feeds would have you believe.

All our love,
