I found this interesting post on the topic of personal happiness. It turns out the happiest people are those people who are busy but not rushed.
A study published last year entitled “Social Indications Research” has this to say in the subject of being bored:
Who among us are the most happy? Newly published research suggests it is those fortunate folks who have little or no excess time, and yet seldom feel rushed.
So, feeling less rushed does not automatically increase happiness; if it did, those numbers would be moving in tandem, rather than in opposite directions. Rather, Robinson writes, surveys “continue to show the least happy group to be those who quite often have excess time.”
