Happiness Quotient, H.Q.

Happiness Quotient, H.Q.

Time magazine this week has an interesting short article on what science has discovered that can improve our Happiness Quotient or H.Q., (my designation not the articles). It is in the October 12, 2015 issue on page 28. But in a very abridged form here are the five basic recommendations, from scientific research, that can improve our Happiness Quotient:
1.Plan pleasant and enjoyable experiences.
2.Calmness bests excitement on the H.Q. scale.
3.Indulge your senses and the pleasures they can deliver.
4.Modest expectations have the best outcome. 
5. Savor all the big and little pleasures life has to offer.
