Don’t be fooled by the title – I’m not saying we should all become self-involved people that no-one wants to be around. Actually, it’s quite the opposite.
I read articles and books all the time that suggest humans aren’t inherently unhappy creatures – we choose to be. Unsurprisingly, the lens we see life through makes a rather big difference to our wellbeing, even affecting how long we might live.
The Danes regularly top the tables when it comes to happiness ratings by country. That’s quite a feat given the nonsense weather and lack of sunshine hours they put up with – so it makes sense that everyone wants to know their secret.
