New York Magazine takes on the study of happiness. Harvard's most popular class is one on the positive psychology of happiness. It pushes the idea of self-help as one of the paths to a truly enjoyed smile. Seems like people now apparently need a guide on how to be happy.
Some of the more interesting bits of advice: don't go into law school (and I know some people who wouldn't be too thrilled by this), asking for other people's opinion is good, shop and then throw the receipts--all very sound, and we've heard this before.
And oh: Money can buy you happiness, and pursuing your personal dream may only make you miserable.
Something to think about, hey?
