"Happiness is not having what you want but wanting what you have," according to James Stewart. Although scientists nowunderstand the roots of depression more clearly than they used to, happiness still remains mystery. Recently, however someinteresting discoveries have been made. Those who say they are happy, for example, tend to be less self-centred, less hostile and abusive, and are less prone diseaseand general ill health. Interestingly, the affluent are not notably happier than their less-well-off counterparts, and seemingly,no particular time of life is significantly happier than any other. Even though some people see life as tragedy whenquestioned, most people said they were generally happy painting much rosier picture regarding people's genereral moodsand dispositions. Research has shown that people have two basic reward centres in their brains that are stimulated by two different chemicalswhich cause happiness. The first, dopamine, is triggered by activities like exercise, relaxation and the quieter pleasures. Thesecond comprises set of adrenaline-type chemicals which are triggered by exciting or frightening activities. Dopamineprovokes response of passive happiness, while the second set of chemicals provokes high-energy state of happines, thefeeling one might get from public speaking or mountain climbing. While understanding the chemical process behind happiness is important, it does not explain why only some people areconsistently happy. The answer may lie in people's perceptions of happiness. One of the reasons we have such problem with happiness is that many confuse it with life untouched by anxiety, rage,doubt and sadness. The belief that happiness means that nothing ever goes wrong is naive; in order to be happy, we mustknow not how to avoid disturbing events, but how to deal with them. The key to coping with life's unpleasant aspects, while remaining content, comes from an everyday practice which MihalyCsikszentimihalyi calls "the flow". He describes "the flow" as the state one is in when doing something complete absorbing. Itcomes when one is pushed right up to the limit of one's ability, but not beyond it. "People can get feeling of flow fromdangerous sports like mountain climbing or driving fast," he says "but it can also come from something relaxing like paintingor reading good book." The point is that it's an activity you do for the pleasure of doing it. You are not looking for praise orreward. What is important, is to keep your brain busy if you want to be happy. The professor explains, "If you leave someoneon their own with nothing specific to do, most of their thoughts will be worries." People tend to think about all the things theywant and haven't got rather than how good their life is. It seems the key to happiness lies in having an active and challenginglifestyle. The scientific study of happiness will help us understand how to build world that improves human well-being and self-esteem, and how to get the most satisfaction from their goals and circumstances.Question 17: According to Csikszentimihalyi " the flow " is triggered by …..A. doing nothing.

"Happiness is not having what you want but wanting what you have," according to James Stewart. Although scientists nowunderstand the roots of depression more clearly than they used to, happiness still remains mystery. Recently, however someinteresting discoveries have been made. Those who say they are happy, for example, tend to be less self-centred, less hostile and abusive, and are less prone diseaseand general ill health. Interestingly, the affluent are not notably happier than their less-well-off counterparts, and seemingly,no particular time of life is significantly happier than any other. Even though some people see life as tragedy whenquestioned, most people said they were generally happy painting much rosier picture regarding people's genereral moodsand dispositions. Research has shown that people have two basic reward centres in their brains that are stimulated by two different chemicalswhich cause happiness. The first, dopamine, is triggered by activities like exercise, relaxation and the quieter pleasures. Thesecond comprises set of adrenaline-type chemicals which are triggered by exciting or frightening activities. Dopamineprovokes response of passive happiness, while the second set of chemicals provokes high-energy state of happines, thefeeling one might get from public speaking or mountain climbing. While understanding the chemical process behind happiness is important, it does not explain why only some people areconsistently happy. The answer may lie in people's perceptions of happiness. One of the reasons we have such problem with happiness is that many confuse it with life untouched by anxiety, rage,doubt and sadness. The belief that happiness means that nothing ever goes wrong is naive; in order to be happy, we mustknow not how to avoid disturbing events, but how to deal with them. The key to coping with life's unpleasant aspects, while remaining content, comes from an everyday practice which MihalyCsikszentimihalyi calls "the flow". He describes "the flow" as the state one is in when doing something complete absorbing. Itcomes when one is pushed right up to the limit of one's ability, but not beyond it. "People can get feeling of flow fromdangerous sports like mountain climbing or driving fast," he says "but it can also come from something relaxing like paintingor reading good book." The point is that it's an activity you do for the pleasure of doing it. You are not looking for praise or
