SoulPancake Examines the Science of Happiness, Makes a Few People Cry Along the Way

What makes us happy? Science makes us pretty happy.

What makes us happy? The University of Pennsylvania did a study to find out, and you can read that study on their website. The folks at SoulPancake didn’t just read the study though. They took in it, distilled it, and built on it. What they ended up with is this video.

The essence of the study is that showing gratitude makes us happy. So why not encourage people to show gratitude to each other, and then measure the result on their happiness with science? That’s what they did, and this is only the beginning. They want more people to follow the parameters of the experiment, and to send in video of their results.
