Today is the International Day of Happiness, so you need to know exactly what makes you happy. Perhaps for you this is a good piece of pizza, for someone else is the smile of a person, but science says the answer is a bit more complicated than that.
The answer to the question is subjective, there is no single universal work that can make all the people of the world happy. However, scientists claim that the answer to the question is in your head. That is, it is located in a certain part of the brain.
A team of Japanese scientists investigated the links between the brain structure and the level of happiness, and found that those who are happier have a higher level of gray matter in the intercourse, the part of the brain located between the two cerebral hemispheres. This area is often associated with a memory recovery after it is lost.
“Our research has shown us that the passage has a major share in the sense of happiness, because through it the information is experienced differently, which later turn into subjective happiness,” the study said.
However, in the same study it was explained that gray mass in the passage does not have to be constant, but it can be increased by some activities. Several previous studies have proven that meditation helps to increase the amount of gray matter in the passage.
Don’t forget to smile !
