How It Works
What you’re experiencing are the effects of positive psychology. It works by using cognitive theory, or your own unique understanding, as a form of medicine – serving as a perfect, quick alternative to heavy, mood-altering medications. This prevents unhappiness, unappreciation, unproductivity, practically replacing the uns and doubts in your mind with healthy, confident thoughts.
Find quick, comforting happiness in The Happy Effect anytime you need a pick-me-up on those dreary weary days from hell.
WARNING: Side effects from the happy effect may include increased endorphin, dopamine and serotonin levels, slight grandiosity, and might cause you to break out into a smile.
