Sad People Live LongerSad People Live Longer, A new study by a team of psychologists has revealed to be happy all the time is not always a great thing. And it may even lead to premature death – yikes! The investigation continues by saying that people with happy personalities, optimists tend to fall into a more risky behavior such as binge drinking, driving too fast and even illegal drugs. In their study, the group of people who read how-to-be happy and advisory councils felt worse after seeing a happy movie, compared with those who did not read the opinion before the movie. They concluded this was because they read the tips had higher expectations when it would benefit the film and ended up feeling cheated.

The study, published in the journal Perspectives on Psychological Science, found that people who express more negative emotions tend to live a protected life, without taking many risks in life.

There is an upside to this study (thankfully); the researchers realized what really makes people happy.

“The strongest predictor of happiness is not money, or external recognition through the success or fame,” said study co-author, Professor Gruber June at Yale University. “It is significant that social relations.

“That means that the best way to increase your happiness is to stop worrying about being happy and instead divert their energy to fuel the social ties they have with other people. If there is one thing that will focus, focus on that. Everything else will come, as it will. “
