Gretchen Rubin of The Happiness Project explores 10 common myths about happiness.
Lately, I’ve found myself frequently discussing several of ten common myths about happiness, so I decided to post the complete list here.
No. 1: Happy people are annoying and stupid. This is an automatic assumption that many people make.
No. 3: Venting anger relieves it.
No. 5: A “treat” will cheer you up.
No. 6: Money can’t buy happiness.
No. 7: Doing “random acts of kindness” brings happiness. The emphasis here is on the word “random.”
No. 8: You’ll be happy as soon as you… Falling into the “arrival fallacy” is something that many people (including me) recognize in themselves.
