Should happiness really be the goal? Find out what’s possible when you deliberately get uncomfortable in life.
No-one gets to live without some adversity, sadness, stress or difficulty. Realistically, a permanent state of happiness is not a smart goal; happiness is achievable only in transitory ways. Resilience is a different story, however, and what we know is that emotionally resilient people are happier people. It makes sense then that if we want more happiness in our life, we are better off building our resilience – we’ll bounce back faster and better from adversity and have more time ‘up’ in our happy zone and less time ‘down’ in our sad or stressed zone.
