Why Be Happy?

Bookmark and Share

As it turns out, there are many reasons for us to be happier – and yes, it is all well worth it ... because as the quote to the left states, “the world of happy people is different from the world of unhappy people.” 


Well, because research has shown that happy people:

So, these are a few “fairly” good reasons to be happy.  I actually think these are excellent reasons, but I’m being conservative here. 

Beyond this, though, if we explore some of the reasons why the above statistics are true, it gets even more interesting and compelling.

Just take stress as an example.  Stress is a fact of life for just about everyone these days, and our ability to handle stress has a significant influence on our health and well-being.  For example, psychologists have developed a “stress list” – which is essentially a list of the most common life events we experience as human beings.  The list includes things like death of a spouse, marriage, divorce, change in work responsibilities, taking out a loan, minor violations of the law, and even vacations.

Then, each event has a “score” associated with it which relates to the amount “impact” that event has on us (death of a spouse, for example, has a score of 100).  When the events in our lives at any particular time are added up, the total “stress score” determines what percentage chance we have of developing a “stress-related illness” - ranging from minimal to about 80%!!  And these “stress-related illnesses” are significant.  They are things like:

  • Heart Disease
  • Asthma
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • GI Problems
  • Accelerated Aging
  • Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Cancer?

And check out these scary statistics:

  • 25 million people in the US and 150 million people globally are “depressed”
  • Depression is the leading cause of disability for people 15-44 years old (cost to the US estimated at $35 billion annually)
  • 1 in 5 people in the US are on anti-depressant or anti-anxiety drugs (that’s 60 million people) … costing over $20 billion annually (and $75 billion globally)
  • Preschool children (kids under 5 years old) have been leading the growth in antidepressant drug use

Yes, stress, depression, anxiety, and these related diseases associated (at least partly) with “unhappiness” are costing our society billions and billions of dollars annually.  Even worse, we as human beings (including young children under 5 years of age) are being subjected to chronic drugs which always have some negative side effects.

So, it appears very clear that there are many reasons to be happy, and clear evidence that “unhappiness” must be reduced.

That’s what this website – and the whole BeHappy! system – is all about.
