Welcome to The Happiness Wagon, where we collate the best of scientific evidence to create usable tips on living a happier life.
Collated as a hobby by Anna Brown, an Osteopath by trade, writer by hobby and optimist by nature.
Having collected research on happiness for years as a personal interest (nerd alert!), I found that when patients asked me for the science behind happiness, I often had some kind of answer sitting on a PDF file in my documents somewhere. Rather than keep this hard work to myself, I thought I would start sharing it with the world in an accessible way and try to make the world a better place, one hot chocolate* at a time.
*hot chocolate, at this stage, has not been scientifically proven to bring about happiness or world peace. But I’m working on it.
