The Week's Barking Up The Wrong Tree column this past week looked at "11 scientific studies that will restore your faith in humanity." The studies focus on themes such as "You don't need to win the lottery to be happy" and "Helping others helps you" and there is so much compelling content in the piece that I am going to return to some of these studies in future posts. For now though, I hope you will take a look at it and then share your thoughts in the Comments section below. I will also leave you with the following thought from the author: "The world is not always fair... But there are plenty of reasons, scientifically tested, to have hope and be positive about the future."
