Everyone wants to be happy, but finding or maintaining happiness on life’s rollercoaster can be tricky sometimes. One study outlined an excellent and simpler way to get happier – simply by reading books. According to a study by the UK’s National Literacy Trust, reading not only gives you an insight into different aspects of human nature or makes you smarter, it also makes you happier and more successful in life and relationships.ˆ

And just in time for the 12th annual Hunt for Happiness Week (courtesy of the Secret Society of Happy People) which encourages everyone to create their own happiness and spread a little around too.
