Lower your expectations. That’s according to neuroscientist, Dr. Robb Rutledge. In experiments, he found that our happiness doesn’t depend on how well things are going – just that they are going better than expected. So if you expect a meal to be the greatest thing you’ve ever tasted, you’ll probably be disappointed. But if you don’t have any expectations, you’ll be delighted by how delicious it is. And that goes for just about everything. So like the old saying goes, “Expect nothing and you won’t be disappointed.” Instead, you’ll be pleasantly surprised – and happier.
