After decades of studying and working with tens of thousands of patients, researchers at the Mayo Clinic say they’ve cracked the code to being happy. The Mayo Clinic is one of the most prestigious health organizations in the world with as many as 8,000 ongoing studies exploring every imaginable condition — including unhappiness.
But if we learn to command our thoughts, shifting perspective away from the negative, and embrace the positive, we will be happier, experts say. “Resiliency has everything to do with happiness,” Dr. Sood said. The Mayo Clinic’s research also shows the degree of happiness people enjoy has to do with how resilient they are to life’s many curve balls. Happy people are very good at compartmentalizing and creating boundaries.
why so many on ATS are so unhappy
I get my grumpies out on ATS and focus on the positive in my real life.

It's a funny study, it's a simple thing that's not so simple for a lot of people.
My one time struggle with depression years ago showed me this, but it's hard for a lot of folks to live in the here and now constantly to break a pattern learned and followed after many years. And it takes being present and aware to find happiness that lasts.
Myself you asked? I continue to seek out looking at the bright side of life....as per Monty pythons song lol.
Always looking at a longer view, keeping in mind the best possible viewpoint ( and vantage point) makes for seeing happiness in everyday real things....at times abundantly.
I am abundantly happy, life is more than I ever needed
