Since moving to the States nearly a year ago, I’ve noticed that the Americans are obsessed with the search for happiness. A definite culture shock from the ingrained cynicism of the British. But does looking for happiness really work? Or does it just end in anxiety and misery? This week I’ve been writing about the phenomenon in the New York Times. Click on the link below to take a look. If you like it, or if you don’t, then I would love it if you would leave me a comment there on the site. And ideally Facebook share or tweet it. Thanks for reading!
