Hedonism may be the key to living a happier life, according to a new study that suggests those who take the time for hedonism are living happier lives and suffer less depression.
Life can be trying and busy, between work, school, family and friends it can seem like you always have something to do. This study suggests that if you have a lot of self control it might be time to rethink your busy lifestyle.
According to Katharina Bernecker from the University of Zurich most psychology experts believe that self control is key to having a successful life, it helps to prioritize long term goals and responsibilities over spontaneous pleasures and diversions. While all that self control might help to keep your life in order, this study argues that seeking pleasure and self indulgence can positively impact your wellbeing.
