Happiness: a State of Well-Being of the Being

There are Best-Selling Books like The How of Happiness by Sonja Lyubomirsky, The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin and Flourish by Martin E. P. Seligman, but all of these Books raise the Question: Why Bother? Many of us might Prefer to Focus on Boosting our Productivity, Performances and Success rather than Positive Emotions.  But which can be a Starting Point between these two Ways to look at the Happiness Market and its Solutions?

The Pursuit of Happiness is also enshrined in the Declaration of Independence as a Right of all Americans as a State of Being that can Be Accomplished in many Sustainable Ways and   that also Scientific Researches describe the Pursuit of Happiness as Advisable for the Maintaining of Good Health.

In Fact, Recently, Several Researches have provided what might be the most Fundamental Argument in favor of Happiness: Happiness and WellBeing are Inextricably Linked. Indeed, Scientific Studies have been finding that Happiness can make Heart Healthier, Immune Systems Stronger, and Lives Longer and it also Combats Stress and its Triggers.

Some of the Studies cited below suggest that Happiness causes better Health, but others Suggest that the two Conditions are correlated and that perhaps Good Health causes Happiness but not Vice-Versa. 

The most accredited Theory would be that Happiness and Health may indeed be a Virtuous Circle in fact as my Mentor Tony Robbins affirms in a Broader and Holistic Sense: “Success without Fulfillment is the Ultimate Failure” where Happiness and Health can be Considered two Goals that are Linked by Scientific Observations.

Martin Seligman (one of my Favorite Researchers about Happiness and Positive Psychology) wouldn’t approve this Generation because to close an Aristotelian Monism but as “Believer” of an Holistic Vision, and going out of a dichotomy Happiness-Health, I consider the Well-Being as a Quality and a Consequence of a Success in all the Areas of our Lives that Creates Happiness in presence of Fulfillment (a Subjective, Purposeful and Meaningful Success).
