A Happy life may not be meaningful life

Life is never made unbearable by circumstances,but only by lack of meaning and perpose'.For most of people,feeling happy and finding life meaningful are both important and related goals.but do happiness and meaning always go together? It seems unlikely,given many of the things that we regularily choose to do from running marathon to rising children are likely to increase day by day./ As one might expect, people’s happiness levels were positively correlated with whether they saw their lives as meaningful. However, the two measures were not identical – suggesting that what makes us happy may not always bring more meaning, and vice versa. To probe for differences between the two, the researchers examined the survey items that asked detailed questions about people’s feelings and moods, their relationships with others, and their day-to-day activities. Feeling happy was strongly correlated with seeing life as easy, pleasant, and free from difficult or troubling events. Happiness was also correlated with being in good health and generally feeling well most of the time. However, none of these things were correlated with a greater sense of meaning. feeling good most of time might help us feel happier but it doesn,t neccesarily bring a sence of purpose to life    

Interestingly, their findings suggest that money, contrary to popular sayings, can indeed buy happiness. Having enough money to buy what one needs in life, as well as what one desires, were also positively correlated with greater levels of happiness. However, having enough money seemed to make little difference in life’s sense of meaning. 

When it comes to thinking about how to be happier, many of us fantasize about taking more vacations or finding ways to avoid mundane tasks. We may dream about skipping housework and instead doing something fun and pleasurable. However, tasks which don’t make us happy can, over time, add up to a meaningful life. Even routine activities — talking on the phone, cooking, cleaning, housework, meditating, emailing, praying, waiting on others, and balancing finances — appeared to bring more meaning to people’s lives, but not happiness in the moment. 
 More broadly, the findings suggest that pure happiness is about getting what we want in life—whether through people, money, or life circumstances. Meaningfulness, in contrast, seems to have more to do with giving, effort, and sacrifice. It is clear that a highly meaningful life may not always include a great deal of day-to-day happiness. And, the study suggests, our indian obsession with happiness may be intimately related to a feeling of emptiness, or a life that lacks meaning.

कुछ बातें..!♥️

❤️ अावशार सा खूबसूरत चेहरा उसका रंग चाहत का कुछ इश्कदर उभरा उसपे तारों की चमचमाहट तेरे आंखो की गर्माहट... क्या खूब था.! तेरा यूं मुस्कुराना और, मुझे यूं इन सुनसान गलियों में  तन्हा छोड़ जाना  क्या खूब था..! तेरा हाथ पकड़ गलियों में चलना तेरे लिए मेरा किसी से भी झगड़ जाना तेरा चेहरा देख फिर वो सब बातें भूल जाना क्या खूब था..! मुझसे मिलने के लिए  तेरा घरवालों को झूठ बोल  जाना चुपके चुपके उन हसीन गलियों में मिल पाना क्या खूब था..! मेरी गलतियों पे तुम्हारा यूं मैसेज अनशीन छोड़ जाना और फिर सौ बहाने जताना और मेरा यूं उन बातों को भुला तुझे माफ कर जाना क्या खूब था..! तुझसे बात कर वक़्त का यूं गुज़र जाना और बात करते करते हम दोनों का यूं सौ जाना क्या खूब था...! तेरा मुझे पीठ पीछे धोखा दे पाना और मेरा तुझपर से भरोसा उठ जाना मेरा यूं अकेले में दर्द जताना तेरे याद में खुद को भूल जाना क्या खूब था..! मेरा टूट कर बिखर जाना मेरे दोस्तों का उन लम्हों में साथ दे पाना और तुझको  यूं आसानी  से ना भूल पाना तुम्हारी याद में घंटों गुज़र जाना क्या खूब था..!

ADVANTAGE of being a good observer[ADA]

Some advantages of being a good observer: You notice things other people miss . Even things right in front of you can be missed or overlooked if you have not focused on them. By being a good observer you pay attention to both the big picture and the small details. You position yourself to make connections and linkages . What you observe can be incorporated into your description of the results that occurred. For instance, a good description, fueled by your observations, is important when it comes to interpreting the success of an experiment. Good observations fuel the quality of feedback you can provide.  If you have been asked to observe a situation (e.g. a presentation given to a group), then your feedback will be more valuable when it is built on tangible observations. I  connect observing with intentionality . My opinion is that watching is just “seeing” something unfold. Observing, in my mind, is being intentional regarding what you are looking at, hear
