Don’t Worry…Be Happy!

Posted by redsatellite on December 5, 2008

Here’s a little song i wrote
you might want to sing it note for note

don’t worry, be happy
in every life we have some trouble
when you worry you make it double
don’t worry, be happy

Happiness is indeed….contagious. So start hanging around happy people.

Happiness is contagious, researchers reported on Thursday.

And getting connected to happy people improves a person’s own happiness, they reported in the British Medical Journal.

“What we are dealing with is an emotional stampede,” Nicholas Christakis, a professor of medical sociology at Harvard Medical School in Boston, said in a telephone interview. People with the most social connections – friends, spouses, neighbors, relatives — were also the happiest, the data showed. “Each additional happy person makes you happier,” Christakis said.

Get out and meet more people- you’ll live longer.
