Psychologists Bring Science Of Happiness To China

UC Berkeley has helped establish a new psychology department at China's Tsinghua University. Professor Kaipeng Peng discusses the Science of Happiness.He says the social changes brought about by China's move from socialism to capitalism have made the study of psychology there more important, and that the collaboration also helps American psychologists learn more about psychological differences between cultures. Video produced by Roxanne Makasdjian, UC Berkeley Media Relation" The ranks of China's millionaires continue to grow, but the increased wealth has done little to boost the country’s gross domestic happiness, according to psychologists at the University of California, Berkeley. They say the pursuit of prosperity in the nation is fast outpacing mental health and well-being, and are seeking to correct that imbalance by spreading the science of happiness in China.

I LOVE the colors of this office and the black and white pictures on the background. I think I could steal this idea   for my office.  I believe all white room can look GORGEOUS if you add splashes of color like this amazing green chair. I'm really digging the softness and femininity of this room. For some reason I am very drawn to mirrored  chest and side tables.   They look so glam!! I DIE!!!! For this room. Love the floor to ceiling windows. I love Zebra rugs, fancy crown molding and  crystal chandeliers. Are you feeling me. I love  how everything   is monochromatic except for the yellow sofa. Loves it!!   This is a dream of mine. I swear one day.... it will come true :)      I can see my daughter enjoying a room like this.     Love the ecletic feel. Need to say

Happiness Explained: Happy people really do work harder

  "Economists have established a link between workers' happiness and   their performance, and say employers should take note" A team of economists has now produced research that suggests there are clear links between workers' happiness and their productivity. The team, led by Andrew Oswald, a professor of economics at Warwick Business School and a leading authority on the relationship between economics and mental health, said its research has important implications for the worlds of politics and business. "We find that human happiness has large and positive causal effects on productivity," the team said. "Positive emotions appear to invigorate human beings, while negative emotions have the opposite effect." The team conducted a range of exercises in their research. In one, students were asked to add a series of five two-digit numbers in 10 minutes. The subjects were paid an attendance fee, and a performance fee based on the num

The Source of Happiness...

Happiness Explained: Family + Food = Happiness

As you all know I love cooking. I have never taken a cooking class in my entire life so I considered myself a home cook just like any other mom in America. My first cooking memories always takes me back to my grandmother's house. She is one of those women that  everyone around the city knew. Her cooking was sooo good that she was able to to use the earnings toward her children college fund and buy her own house.

Her father was a respected member of the community, was involved in politics, and owned  a small country store.  Puerto Ricans, just like my grandmother, value family life and will put their family first. They consider family a core cultural value. The traditions and beliefs of Puerto Ricans ar

Rescued bluebird finds happiness with saviors

More than a month ago, Doug and Diane Willard of Midlothian found the tiny bird lying flat, featherless, freezing and breathing heavily in a neighbor's newspaper box. A handyman, Doug Willard was helping close his neighbor's newspaper holder to deter bluebirds from nesting there. The near lifeless bird's mother had not returned to the nest in some time, and another young bird was dead on the ground. "You could feel the body, and it was just cold," Diane Willard said. "So I brought it home, and for four weeks, I had it on a heating pad. It was so pitiful. I mean, it was just flat as a pancake." Five-and-a-half weeks later, "Birdy" is a full-size bluebird with majestic, royal-blue wings and a hearty coat of gray feathers on her breast and back. The Willards' neighbor, Louise Nuckols, another adoptive figure in the fledgling's life, even found Birdy a cage to sleep in. "We didn't think it would make it through the wee
