What Makes a Person Happy?
Pleasure and happiness can both contribute to happiness, but the two can be completely exclusive. You can feel a sense of happiness based on meaning and engagement that has nothing to do with pleasure, or you can feel pleasure but also struggle with guilt because of it, keeping you from feeling happy at the same time. Science would agree with you.
The Difference in Average Happiness across Rich Nations
The difference in average happiness across rich nations is due to variation in freedom, not only perceived freedom, but also actual freedom and psychological freedom. The Finns feel more free and are more free than the French because they are more free and they have more guts to be free.
Surprises in Life
Life is full of surprises. Every now and then someone will come out and tell you something that will make you gasp and your eyes will be blank.
The Sophia programme: A social network for working, family and life satisfaction in France
In France, the employment rate for people aged 15 to 64 is less than the average for the world. Men are more likely to be in paid work. The average number of hours worked by employees is less than the average of the other countries in the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.
In France, there is a high sense of community and civic participation, where 90 percent of people believe they know someone who could help them in times of need, in line with the average of 89% in the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. The voter turnout was higher than the average for the OECD during the recent elections. The top 20% of the population has a voter turnout of 80%, and the bottom 20% has a voter turnout of 70%.
French people are less satisfied with their lives than the average. The French people gave a 6.5 grade on the satisfaction scale, in line with the average of the other countries. It is important to examine living conditions, such as the average number of rooms shared person and whether households have access to basic facilities, in addition to housing costs.
The number of rooms in a dwelling is used to determine whether residents are living in crowded conditions. It is possible that overcrowded housing can have a negative impact on physical and mental health. In addition, living conditions are often not up to standard.
The average home in France has about 1.8 rooms person. Money doesn't buy happiness, but it is important to achieve higher living standards and better well-being. Quality education, health care and housing may be improved by higher economic wealth.
Life satisfaction and GDP per capita: A comparison of evolution, adaptation to changes
The chart plots the relationship between self-reported life satisfaction and GDP per capita on the horizontal axis. The location of the arrow on the grid tells us the combination of average income and happiness. The first point is that most events show the evolution of a situation, which is that people grow unhappy in the period leading up to a divorce, while they are happy in the period leading up to a marriage.
The second point is that people adapt to changes and single life events do affect happiness in the short run. There are clear differences in how people adapt. Life satisfaction goes up and down in the case of divorce.
There is a negative shock for unemployment among men. Life satisfaction builds up before and after the wedding. The evidence shows that adaptation is an important feature of well-being.
There are many important life events that have a small impact on happiness. Adaptability to long-term unemployment is not perfect. It is not an ideal source of evidence to compare differences in life satisfaction among people with different disabilities.
Non-paraplegics are not as dependent on a motor vehicle as paraplegics. Longitudinal surveys are a better source of evidence. Experiments show that self reports of well-being correlate with activity in the parts of the brain associated with pleasure and satisfaction.
Love in French
French is the language of love and it's a beautiful language. Many writers and poets have used the language to explore themes such as love, beauty, and nature.
