"Doing what I think I can't do makes me happy." - Scarlett Johansson in her interview in SUCCESS.
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) May 07, 2012
Top-notch research studies on what it takes to be happy have been done at our country’s most prestigious institutions and all around the world. The first ever meta-analysis of this often startling research is revealed in a 20-page bonus section of SUCCESS magazine, which hits newsstands May 8.
SUCCESS busts some of the top misconceptions people have about happiness, such as:
Bliss is lying on a beach somewhere doing nothing—actually most people are happier at work where they feel useful and busy!
Money is a poor predictor of happiness; people who win the lottery are no happier than others.
Contrary to popular belief that we are born grumpy or mellow, happiness is a matter of simple choices you make every day.
Many believe that success, health and great relationships lead to happiness; in fact, it is being happy that leads to good health, longevity, a happy marriage and more.
The issue includes SUCCESS magazine’s own research on the 10 most blissed-out cities and the 5 most miserable cities (sorry, Detroit!) in America.
SUCCESS also reveals that the best teacher of happiness may be living right in your house—and it’s good old Fido! An essay by an acclaimed novelist tells us why your dog might be your happiness guru (you may never feel resentful about your poop-scooping duty again!).
The former editor in chief of Parenting magazine and current editor in chief of SUCCESS, Susan Kane has appeared many times on Good Morning America, Today, 20/20, and local TV shows and is available for interviews. To schedule an interview, please call Meridith Simes at 940.368.6116.
