Increasing Happiness

Dan Buettner on Happiness

via 6 Thrive Centers | Blue Zones.

I heard an interview with Dan on NPR’s talk of the Nation.  He talked about 6 “Thrive Centers” .  These are areas that, if you pay attention to, can dramatically increase your level of happiness.


1. Community

2. Workplace

3. Social Life

4. Financial Life

5. Home

6. Self


My favorite was: Find the right job, It’s best to find a job that challenges us to an optimal level — one that’s neither so hard that we give up nor so easy that we get bored. Finding a job that engages your natural talents and gives you constant feedback is a sure way to build happiness.
