I’m a big fan of Eric Barker, and I make a point of reading what he posts to his blog Barking up the Wrong Tree pretty regularly. Here is his latest blog post to share — How to Be Happy: 5 Secrets Backed by Research. What I really do like about his stuff is, well, that he takes the time to do the research. I’ve come to realize that happiness is much more than just the one-dimensional element of pleasure — it is much more about deriving real meaning from what we do. Eric provides 4 other insights into how to achieve real happiness, and provides some great resources you can explore for those aspects that you really want to drill down on.
