Engaging In Deep Conversations Can Make You Happier

Despite the usual perception that to talk deep all the time about what’s happening in and around your life can make you feel depressed and unhappy, well think again. A psychologist from the University of Arizona by the name of Matthias Mehl, created an experiment which led to the conclusion that those who engage in substantive conversations are more likely to be happier than the rest who only engage in small talk.

There were basically just two simple reasons. First is that we are social beings who have the need to interact with others. While the second reason lies in our longing to find the deeper meaning in the lives we live every day.

So probably this time, aside from just giving love, we can also encourage other people to make each other happier by being involved with quality conversations and less of the crappy, shallow talks.
