For the past few months, I’ve been following a great blog called Generally Thinking. Today I’ve finally got the time to recommend you some of the articles I really liked.
What is Generally Thinking blog about?
Maintained by a psychology student Warren Davies, Generally Thinking is a blog with two major areas of focus: identifying your personal strengths and being happy. I am interested in both topics, and it’s been great so far to see Warren’s view of how strengths are identified and cultivated and why some people are happier than others. I’m a very happy person myself, but reading some of the articles on Generally Thinking helped me understand why I’m happy and to therefore plan some of my future steps in a way that they allow people around me to be happier as well.
Great articles on happiness
Here are just some of the really good posts I’ve found:
- Happiness and genetics – who would have thought there’s a relation between the two?
- How to be happier – 10 scientifically supported ideas – if you need solid reasoning for feeling happier, you’ll love this article
- Does marriage bring happiness? (yes, it does)
Articles on identifying and developing your core strengths
- What to do with your strengths – surprisingly enough, for many of us it’s a valid question even after we got the strengths identified
- You can do anything you set your mind to vs Stick to your strengths – there are successful examples backing each of these statements, this article explores the topic
Generally Thinking is a young blog, but I really like how Warren always refers to other sources of information – this isnt’ a common trend in most of personal development blogs. Sometimes we all really need this extra bit of scientific proof that something works and something doesn’t.
Let me know if you like the blog, and stay tuned for more!
