Is There Such a Thing As Psychological Happiness?

Read Transcript

Hi, I'm Dr. Judy Hails. An answer to your question is there such a thing as a psychological happiness, the answer to that is as varied as humans on the planet. There was an early psychiatrist, Harry Stack Sullivan who said mental health is close to a child likeness. And what he meant by that was could you approach the world and each note new day with brand new eyes, open to learning and being inquisitive and accepting of what life had to offer you, that would be a definition of happiness.

I have a song on my desk and it says to be happy and successful is to live your life in your own way. So it's just like the ancients said to then also be true.
