Transcript of For: IDA Topic: Strategic Happiness

Strategic happiness

If you are happy - no matter what the reason might be, you are more;

If I work harder, then Ill be happier. If happiness is on the opposite site of success, your brain never gets there... we´ve pushed happiness over the cognitive horizon as a society.
Shawn Achor, 2011
The happiness advantage:

Your brain at positive performs way better than at negative, neutral or stressed

vThere are many ways to measure happiness. We can ask people “How happy are you right now?” and have them rate it on a scale. We can use magnetic resonance imaging to measure cerebral blood flow, or electromyography to measure the activity of theJanuary–February 2012 Harvard Business Review 85HBR.oRG

For example, in general people who are in good romantic relationships are happier than those who aren’t. Healthy people are happier than sick people. People who participate in their churches are happier than those who don’t. Rich people are happier than poor people.
make them much happier than those events actually do, and they expect negative events to make them unhappier than they actually do. In both field and lab studies, we’ve found that winning or losing an election, gaining or losing a romantic partner, get- ting or not getting a promotion, passing or failing an exam—all have less impact on happiness than people think they will. A recent study showed that very few experiences affect us for more than three months. When good things happen, we celebrate for a while and then sober up. When bad things happen, we weep and whine for a while and then pick our- selves up and get on with it.
Synthetic happiness is what we produce when we don’t get what we want, and natural happi- ness is what we experience when we do.
We’d never say, “Oh, of course, if I lost my money or my wife left me, I’d find a way to be just as happy as I am now.” We’d never say it—but it’s true
That’s what people do when they’re bored, and people hate be- ing bored. We know that people are happiest when they’re appropriately challenged—when they’re try- ing to achieve goals that are difficult but not out of reach

So challenge makes people happy. What else do we know now about the sources of happiness? If I had to summarize all the scientific literature on the causes of human happiness in one word, that word would be “social.” We are by far the most social species on Earth. Even ants have nothing on us. If I wanted to predict your happiness, and I could know only one thing about you, I wouldn’t want to know your gender, religion, health, or income. I’d want to know about your social network—about your friends and family and the strength of your bonds with them.

Beyond having rich networks, what makes us happy day to day? The psychologist Ed Diener has a finding I really like. He essentially shows that the frequency of your posi- tive experiences is a much better predictor of your happiness than is the intensity of your positive expe- riences. When we think about what would make us happy, we tend to think of intense events—going on a date with a movie star, winning a Pulitzer, buying a yacht. But Diener and his colleagues have shown that how good your experiences are doesn’t matter nearly as much as how many good experiences you have. Somebody who has a dozen mildly nice things happen each day is likely to be happier than some- body who has a single truly amazing thing happen. So wear comfortable shoes, give your wife a big kiss, sneak a french fry. It sounds like small stuff, and it is. But the small stuff matters.
We imagine that one or two big things will have a profound effect. But it looks like happiness is the sum of hundreds of small things.

Vores forskning peger på at glæde på jobbet afhænger mere af små gode ting vi glæder os over til hverdag - altså vores rutine interaktioner med kolleger, de projekter vi er involverede i, vores daglige arbejde - end på de statiske rammer så som høj løn eller en prestigefyldt titel...

Develop New Habits
Training your brain to be positive is not so different from training your muscles at the gym. Recent research on neuroplasticity—the ability of the brain to change even in adulthood—reveals that as you develop new habits, you rewire the brain.

It has long been an assumption that there is a link between physical expression of emotions and the intensity of those emotions, otherwise known as the "facial feedback theory." A intriguing pilot study conducted in 2006 by Dermatologist Eric Finzi, M.D., Ph.D. evaluated the effectiveness of Botox in treating depression. In the study, Finzi injected ten women (nine with depression and one with bipolar disorder) with Botox in their glabellar frown lines. After two months, all nine with depression were diagnosed as no longer showing signs of depression. Even the woman with bipolar disorder reported improvements in mood.
Your expressions help create your mood
the Mirror of expressions
One major finding is that people’s minds wander nearly half the time, and this appears to lower their mood. Wandering to unpleasant or even neutral topics is associated with sharply lower happiness; straying to positive topics has no effect either way. The amount of mind- wandering varies greatly depending on the activity, from roughly 60% of the time while commuting to 30% when talking to someone or playing a game to 10% during sex. 50% during work.
