Singapore’s happiest person will be introduced soon at a conference, New Science of Happiness And Well-being. It would be held at Singapore Expo on 16-17 April. They offer tips and tools to build lasting happiness in work and life. Each seat costs $1388. When the search for the Singapore’s Happiest Person was announced recently, I thought that not many people would enter, but apparently, according to the Sunday Times, there were quite a lot of applications.

It’s not easy being happy but it is certainly achievable. We have a choice in being happy or angry or sad, so instead of choosing a negative state of mind, why not choose one that is better for the body. We may have events that make us unhappy, but dwelling on them do not make us feel better.

In another article in The Sunday Times, according to two Wharton economists, money might not buy you love, but it might be able to buy you happiness. When we have money, we have the freedom to do many things. At the very least, the day to day existence need not be on people’s topmost priority. This is also due to more statistics that measured happiness and covered more countries.

Some limiting beliefs people have about money is that having money may take away happiness, but it all boils down to the person’s attitude, and not the money itself.
