Sunday Times article, p9, 18/12/2011

Miriam was quoted in the Sunday Times article reporting that the World Book of Happiness is being gifted to world leaders by the European Council with a request to prioritise the well-being of their nations in 2012. As the Sunday Times is behind a paywall here is Miriam’s quote in full:- “I’m delighted that Herman van Rompuy is sending this book to world leaders. With the economic breakdown there is now a chance for a breakthrough, to rebuild a healthier society if leaders pay attention to what the scientific research reveals about what really makes us happy and builds well-being. And one of the key findings is that when it comes to our happiness, other people matter. Happiness comes less from within and more from the space in between – our relationships. If they can help to foster that lost sense of community, that will make a substantial contribution to global happiness.”
