Why HappierHuman Will Help You Flourish
If you want more from life… more happiness or more satisfaction, you’re in the right place.
Over the past 50 years, our GDP per capita has increased by 400%, but self-reports of life satisfaction haven’t changed.
We’re 4x richer, but no happier.
There are two problems:
1. Too much of what we think is true is actually not. We’ve been enslaved by our biological desires for power and mind-numbing entertainment.
2. Even when we know what we should be doing, we fail again and again to make or sustain the change.
How do we find out what really works, and actually get ourselves to do it?
I’ll break down positive psychology and behavior modification research into simple, actionable steps.

About Amit Amin
I want to be jubilant. That’s why I started this blog.
Twelve months ago I started working at my “dream” job – I was a consultant making big bucks, traveling across the country, racking up great work experience.
At first it was great, but then I started to wonder: am I really helping people? why do I have to work such long hours? why do I have so much, but feel like there’s something missing?
I realized my model of the world was wrong, and I grew skeptical. Skeptical that money = happiness, and skeptical that most companies provide real value and actually make people lastingly happier.
So I decided to study positive psychology, the empirical version of the self-help movement.
This blog is my journey to seek out, absorb, synthesize and put into action the mass of happiness wisdom and science scatter across the world’s people, books, research papers, and webpages.
