NEW YORK, November 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Happiness is the one thing we all desire in life – yet our very efforts to obtain it make it harder to achieve. You have merely to ask yourself whether you are happy, John Stuart Mill wrote, “and you cease to be so.”
New Philosopher magazine’s “Happiness” issue launches in the US and Canada Monday November 3. Can positive thinking be a fast track to misery and stress? Can affirmations – those peppy phrases you repeat to yourself in the mirror – make you feel worse? And is it possible that “positive visualization” techniques can actually make you less likely to succeed?
