The Science of Happiness – Infographic

The Science of Happiness

Most people strive to be happy, even if we all have different ideas of what happy is!  What doesn’t change is the science behind how our emotions work.  We know that the part of the brain that controls our happy emotions is the hippocampus, and it releases a happy little chemical called seratonin that gives us uncontrollable joy when it’s flooding out and the gloomies when it’s low.  What else might have this effect on us though?

Today’s infographic gives you some tips  for staying as happy as you can be and how various activities and exercises can dramatically increase your happiness. [VIA]

Culture and Colors – Infographic

What Colors Mean to Different Cultures

Every culture expresses themselves differently, whether it be through words, signs, gestures, or symbols.  This is no different when it comes to color.  For example, in the US (and most western cultures) we associate the color red with danger, but for the Native Americans it’s yellow.  We get the blues when we’re unhappy, but the Japanese see black.  Today’s data packed infographic gives a fantastic insight into the ways that different cultures perceive their emotions through color.
