A poll conducted by Forum Research paper concludes that the poverty is a source of misery but being rich doesn’t make you essentially happy. May be that’s the reason why many wealthy people are philanthropic.
By looking at the trends in our society it’s obvious that donors may be as much in need of giving as recipients of receiving. Most of us feel good about throwing a coin or two into a beggar’s outstretched palm.
Professor Andrew Oswald of the University of Warwick in England, who has done much research on the subject of life satisfaction, insists that we mustn’t measure happiness by Gross National Product (GDP) statistics. What we need is a Gross National Happiness Index. People don’t report to be happier because the GDP in their country has risen nor are they necessarily unhappy in poor countries.
On the other hand warm relationships with family and friends too are a vital source of happiness. Happyho also provide best tarot reading services in Noida and Delhi NCR India area.
A statement by the Dalai Lama:“My happiness depends on others’ happiness. When I see happy people, automatically I also feel a little bit happier than when I see people in a difficult situation.”
But we can note generalize this as not everyone is a Dalai Lama.
According to Oswald, envy even within families and among friends can spoil happiness, but it’s more prevalent in competitive professions.
It is very surprising to observe that many successful professionals have little appreciation for their own achievements and how much more they believe others to have advanced further with much less merit. Complaints about income don’t necessarily mean that a person is underpaid; it can also mean that others earn more.
Andrew Oswald further says that  joblessness, even more than envy, makes vlog us very unhappy. The loss of status and identity that comes with it greatly mars a person’s sense of well being.
In addition to having enough status, money and people with whom to share one’s life in harmony and hope, the two other factors that make for happiness are life expectancy and education.
People of faith are often described by others and describe themselves as happy. That’s not necessarily because they have experienced the divine or because they’re well versed in religious doctrine. In fact what makes for happiness is community.
