Happiness Reaches Across the Universe

Share your happiness with your friends! In a study that looked at the happiness of nearly 5000 individuals over 20 years, researchers found that when an individual becomes happy, the network effect can be measured up to three degrees. One person’s happiness benefits not only their friends, but their friends’ friends, and their friends’ friends’ friends. The effect lasts for up to one year. This is according to a study by Harvard Medical School.
