Do you know someone who seems to magically lift your mood without saying a word? When the Dalai Lama visits a city, residents often say they feel peaceful simply by being in his presence. Researchers believe that peaceful people’s hearts emit uplifting waves that affect nearby hearts. This may explain why some people make us feel so good while others leave us feeling deflated.
How happy are you with your life? How satisfied are you with your life? Happiness and satisfaction are very subjective words that are used to mean different things. A lot of people use the word ‘happiness’ to describe joy. And sometimes we use the word ‘satisfaction’ to mean the pleasure we feel when our needs are filled, like the feeling we get from eating a satisfying meal after a long day of work.
