The Recipe for “Happy”

by Joey deVilla on April 19, 2010

Those of you who’ve been reading this blog for a while know that hedonics – the study of what makes us happy or unhappy – is a pet topic of mine. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that I like the graphic below:

The "Are You Happy?" flowchart poster

Yes, the “Change something” part of the flowchart covers a ridiculously large amount of ground – the “something” could be “your world”, “yourself”, “how you see things” or a mix of the three — and up to several years of work, personal journeying and possibly therapy, but the procedure outlined in the poster is the basic recipe for “happy”.

Here are links to the people and/or entities that appear in the credits at the bottom of the poster:

You should read the book “Stumbling on Happiness” by Dan Gilbert. It’s all about the brain processes about being happy, and it’s utterly fascinating.
