Stress Expert Explains the Secret to True Happiness

PITTSBURGH, June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Researchers at the University of Rochester, NY recently made the surprising discovery that money, looks, and fame don't actually make people happier. The researchers tracked 147 college graduates by investigating their goals and happiness a year after they had graduated. The students were then evaluated again one year later. The study showed that the acquisition of external goals not only didn't bring about the sense of happiness expected, but in many cases actually brought unhappiness. Students who achieved internally focused goals such as personal growth and strong relationships were significantly happier.

This is no surprise to Dr. Elizabeth Lombardo, who has seen how a patient's state of mind can dramatically affect his or her medical outcome. According to Dr. Lombardo, "Effectively coping with stress is a skill, just like playing golf. Some people are naturals, while most of us need training. But you can learn. You can have less stress and greater happiness in your life, regardless what is happening in your life. You just need to get the necessary tools, and the more you practice them, the easier and more effective they become."

Call Dr. Lombardo to explain these happiness secrets to your audience:

  • You don't need to wait for the recession to be over to find happiness.
  • What you think causes happiness actually depletes it.
  • Happiness is one thought away.
  • 3 key steps to being happy now.
  • Great news: you don't need more money in your bank account to be happy.
