Did you know that having a meaningful conversation can actually boost your mood? A recent study suggests that interaction with others may have a positive effect on your happiness. In this study, those who reported the greatest levels of well-being spent less time alone and more time talking with others. In addition, the happiest study participants were twice as likely to engage in deep conversations and truly connect with other people, and one-third less likely to make "small talk." While it can be fun to talk about your favorite television show or the latest celebrity, according to this study, the key to "happy talk" is to focus on having conversations with substance. Share!
