Mindfulness, Teenage Boys, and Happiness


Results from a study on boys from the UK show that "mindfulness" can make us happier... and if it works on teenage boys, I feel reasonably comfortable in suggesting it's probably going to work on just about anybody!

If your own children are not being 'mindful', this might be a useful strategy to centre them, and yourself... and at the same time, boost your happiness levels.

I should also add that the researcher, Felicia Huppert, is one of the world's most highly regarded psychology researchers (in the field of Positive Psychology) and her research is of a consistently exceptional standard.
