Hans-Otto  Thomashoff - I Was Looking for Happiness and Found Contentment


Why contentment is the new happiness

Everybody wants to be happy. In looking for happiness, however, most people are falling victim to a misconception: it is not happiness that makes us happy but contentment. Contentment somehow seems so unspectacular, but as far as a successful life is concerned it is far more important than happiness. Happiness is fleeting, contentment consistent – as daily experience and brain research have shown us.

Hans-Otto Thomashoff has linked the teachings of psychology, psychoanalysis and neurobiology and created a many-layered and entertainingly presented panorama of the way our brain and the psyche it has created function. Case studies and anecdotes plus specific suggestions for what can be done towards leading a life of contentment round off the book.
