Peak BrainHappiness Training Improves Long-Term Health—
The Important Missing Links are Found
Can practicing Peak BrainHappiness Training improve your long-term health? Odds are, it can. The evidence is now considerably more convincing than it was just a few months ago, due to two key findings.
Long Lasting Happiness
After the Neureka! training sessions in our study, the subjects reported themselves 32% happier. Dr. Estate Sokhadze (Dept. of Psychiatry, Univ. of Louisville) and Dr. Jon Cowan (Peak Achievement Training) used the same question that the Australian happiness study did [see below] in our study to evaluate their happiness. We now have evidence from a follow-up study, that the enhanced happiness lasts at least 4 months. The responses to the same follow up question showed the same value for happiness improvement as the original measurement did right after training. No loss! This indicates that they learned happiness quite thoroughly after just five hours (12 sessions, 25 minutes each) of training. Eight of the 11 subjects in the study indicated they felt happier in the four weeks after the study than they did in the four weeks before it.
The study was awarded a Citation by the Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback, when it was presented at their 2011 Meeting.
157 of 160 Studies Link Current Happiness to Future Health
A press release from the University of Illinois on March 2, 2011 stated: “Happy or positive people tend to have better health and live longer than their counterparts who are unhappy, U.S. researchers say. Ed Diener, professor emeritus of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and colleagues reviewed more than 160 studies involving humans and animals under stress." The UPI article quotes Dr. Diener: "I was almost shocked and certainly surprised to see the consistency of the data. All of these different kinds of studies point to the same conclusion: that health and then longevity in turn are influenced by our mood states. Happiness is no magic bullet, but the evidence is clear and compelling that it changes your odds of getting disease or dying young." Dr. Diener, who is one of the major researchers in positive psychology, posted the full article on his website.
The Large Australian Study
One of the articles that Diener cited is the study done by the Australian Dept. of Labour and analyzed by Siahpush et al., [See Abstract] They surveyed nearly 10,000 people in 2001 and again in 2004. Siahpush et al’s results from analyzing the survey indicated that those who were happy most of the time in 2001 were over 50% more likely to be both healthier and free of long term health concerns in 2004.
Happiness Leads to Success
For those who are looking for a more immediate payoff, enhancing happiness may also improve success. Several years ago, Lyubomirsky and Diener published an article showing that this is actually more likely than success leading to happiness. [See Abstract]. They discussed several different kinds of success – marriage, friendship, income, work performance and health -- and came to the same conclusion for each.
We have summarized all of this in a PowerPoint, which you are free to use in your presentations to groups that may be interested.
These studies bring us closer to the reality of enhancing happiness, health and longevity of people all over the world.
