An interesting discussion about the definition of happiness ensued on Twitter after I tweeted an article that linked greater self-control to happiness. I decided I wanted to write a blog post on the definition of happiness and so began to ponder all the great thinkers that have influenced me…BF Skinner, Hans Selye, Charles Darwin, Viktor Frankl, Abraham Maslow, Henry David Thoreau, among others. Then I wondered if I might just seek consensus on the question by asking as many people as I can for their definition of happiness. I will report back the collective result as a word cloud!
So my question to you is, in a word, how do you define happiness? (try to avoid synonyms like joy, contentment, satisfaction, etc).
Respond as a comment to this post below or tweet it to me.
