Great news! Studies have proven that happiness is in fact, contagious!

Our team here at Life Resolutions hope to spread happiness and joy across Australia! Head psychologist, Mary Magalotti and the team of Life Resolutions psychologists aim to help all Australians to work towards a happy life and be able to share that happiness. Our director Jodie Brenton works to make mental health services available to all Australians.

Happiness is Contagious 

A study found that joy and happiness can spread from person to person and throughout social groups! The study also uncovered that sadness is less contagious than happiness (which is great news in our opinion)!

Happiness was found to spread from person to person, then continues to spread throughout a social network. The study found living 2km of a friend you view to be happy can increase your own happiness by 25%. Then the happiness can continue to spread to increase the happiness of a third party by 10%. The happiness can spread through 6-dergees from the original source!

We can’t be happy all the time, but there are some things we can do to improve our mood and overall level of joy. Things such as being physically active, eating healthier and taking time to be social can help you boost your happiness, then the happiness of those around you.

Here at Life Resolutions, we aim to help all Australians work towards happiness. A driving factor for Jodie Brenton is to see all Australians have the ability to learn the skills to live a happy and healthy life. Mary Magalotti and our team of psychologists offer a range of services to help people on their path to happiness and mental wellbeing.
