Authentic Happiness: Post #1

Interesting Authentic Happiness Findings
--Smiling: Just the way you smile can predict your future happiness. Seligman describes the Duchenne smile (both lips and eyes are engaged) vs. the Pan Am (airline steward/stewardess perfunctory smile).
--Good Endings: Creating a happy ending to any endeavor leaves a long-lingering “…memory of the entire relationship and your willingness to re-enter it.” Seligman details a study of colonoscopies that had me roaring as he made his point about happy endings to this procedure!
