Negative social media posts. Frightening headlines. Workplace challenges. These are all things that Pamela Gail Johnson, the founder of the Society of Happy People, would label “Happiness Zappers,” and they are a fact of life. The good news is these Happiness Zappers don’t have to put a lid on our smiles.
We will all experience at least one or more Happiness Zapper — unhappiness, stress, fear, chaos or annoyances — each day, Johnson said in a recent interview. Much of our happiness is based on how we manage the Happiness Zappers.
