March 20 - World Day of happiness, however,
Psychologists from the University of Victoria (New Zealand) concluded that millions of people are afraid to be happy because they feel that because of this will happen to them something bad.

Researchers found that both Western and Eastern cultures in many people unconsciously refuse to happiness, because, according to them, it will make them selfish, boring, superficial and in general is not very good. In some eastern countries, people even believe that plead happy actually means "jinx" himself, the wrath of some supernatural being, and bring big trouble. At the same time, scientists have noted that in general, the desire to be content with their lot more peculiar representatives of Western culture. For example, in the United States happiness it is one of the main values ​​guiding human life.

However, in addition to the cultural characteristics of the level of human happiness is partially determined by personality traits, and both of these factors are largely dependent on genes. People who inherit certain genes "predisposition" Fortunately, getting emotional reserve, which is realized in the time of disasters and accelerates the human psychological recovery.

By the way, as shown by one of the research on the connection between a positive state of mind and health, happy people live longer. Good mood reduces levels of stress hormones, improves the immune system and helps the heart.
