You're Super Happy!

You're Super Happy!

You’re happier than average. That’s awesome. Happiness is linked to many beautiful things, like better sleep and attractive smiles. But part of being happy is realizing that life sometimes stinks. Tough times, traumatic events, and heck, even persistently lousy weather can be downers. Happy people are more resilient and tend to bounce back quicker, and studies have proven many other benefits of happiness.

You're Pretty Happy

You're Pretty Happy

You see the world through rose-colored glasses…most of the time. You have your up days and down days, and most people are happily in the middle of the happiness scale, like you. Although you live your life with a good amount if cheer, you can raise your level of happiness, and your beauty quotient. What’s the connection? As you increase your happiness you’ll rebound from stress easier and have better cardiovascular health, which helps your skin glow, and keeps wrinkles at bay. Not to mention that people unconsciously find genuine smiles—known to scientists as Duchenne smiles—more attractive. Your brain instantly senses a fake grin, as does anyone who looks at you. So follow the action plan and then take the Happiness Quiz again to see if your score has improved.

You're Not the Sunshine On Your Shoulder Type

You're Not the Sunshine On Your Shoulder Type

Your results indicate you’re not a bubbly, sunshine-on-my-shoulder type, and that’s OK (those people can get annoying, anyway). You didn’t say you’re unhappy per se—maybe you’re going through a tough time right now, or heck, maybe it’s raining today and your hair launched a frizz attack on the way to work. Whatever the reason, you have the potential to bring more happiness into your life.

We aren’t trivializing your feelings—we know life can throw some rotten things at you. But studies show loads of reasons to aspire to be happier, and most have the nice side effect of making you more beautiful. Happier people sleep more soundly, (so long, baggy eyes!) get sick less (there are few things less attractive than the flu), and have more satisfying relationships—in friendship and romance. The happier you become, the more likely you’ll stick with an exercise routine, choose healthy foods, and command (positive!) attention when you walk into the room. So follow the action plan and then take the Happiness Quiz again to see if your score has improved.
