Something we all should paste on the refrigerator

Our designer at Tanasbourne, Lisa Galligan, shared this handy info and list with the team at our last meeting. Being something we all should paste on the refrigerator or in our work spaces, we thought we’d share it with you.

Happy people don’t spend a lot of time watching television, a new study finds.

It turns out to be the single activity they engage in less often than unhappy people.

“We looked at 8 to 10 activities that happy people engage in, and for each one, the people who did the activities more — visiting others, going to church, all those things — were more happy,” Dr. Robinson said. “TV was the one activity that showed a negative relationship. Unhappy people did it more, and happy people did it less.” ~ John Robinson, a professor of sociology at the University of Maryland and the author of the study

The data show that people who spend the most time watching television are least happy in the long run.

Here’s a list of other characteristics of a happy person. How many do you do or don’t do?
