In order to get along with others, we need to find happiness within ourselves. What makes us happy? According to a new Harvard study, it’s focusing on whatever you’re doing, whether talking with a friend, knitting a scarf or reading a novel. Don’t let thoughts drift. When your mind wanders, you tend to ponder the “What Ifs” and ruminate over past experiences and worry about what could happen in the future. By contrast, focusing on what you’re doing right now makes it impossible to think up negative scenarios. If you want to get along in a group situation, never discuss politics or religion. Chances are, whatever we might say on these two forbidden topics will offend someone!
