It's How You See Life

Happiness is measured as anything above neutral on what psychologist call a Delighted-Terrible scale. It is just as real statistically as its opposite, depression. I think it’s the way you handle problems and the way you see life. There are people who are content in their lives no matter how simple it is. Some can’t find happiness if they don’t have the best things in life.

People who define themselves as “satisfied” are usually supported in that belief by friends and family. Psychologists teamed up with neuropsychiatrists to locate centers for happiness in the brain. One of their discoveries is that happy people show more electrical activity in the left frontal lobe of the brain, while those who tend toward sadness or depression show more right frontal-lobe activity.
