To find happiness you should look to help others, say researchers. Stanford University researchers say their findings indicate that people who have set concrete goals for helping others are more likely to be happy than people who set abstract goals. Researchers say that people are often incorrect about what truly makes them happy, and that one clear path for most people to happiness is setting concrete goals and then attaining them. Researchers say the goals can be as simple as making someone smile or increasing recycling and note that, "A pro-social act can not only boost the happiness of the recipient, but it can boost the happiness of the giver as well." (Daily Mail)
