In 1915, Albert Einstein published the theory of general relativity in which he claimed that the universe is constituted by a fundamental material. He also added that this material or space-time changed the shape of some massive objects.
100 years later, the theory of general relativity has proven to be one of the best ways to understand the universe, black holes, time expansion, gravitational waves, and other discoveries. Years after the discovery of relativity theory, Einstein proposed another theory that was not associated with physics.
It described the recipe of happiness; he gave it to a messenger and told him to keep it because one day it could be valuable. And it was right; Einstein’s “Theory of Happiness” was auctioned for $ 1.59 million. The seller would be a grandson of the messenger who met Einstein.
95 years after Einstein’s death, his thoughts were made public: “A calm and modest life brings happiness rather than achieving success combined with a constant lack of restlessness.”
In October 1922, while Einstein wrote his theory of happiness, he was at a hotel in Tokyo and had recently been informed that he had won the Nobel Prize in Physics. Studies have shown that choosing a life in which you are your own boss leads to happiness. Studies also show that a balanced life with exercise, a 7-hour work program and a balanced diet can bring happiness.
One of the most complex studies of happiness in 2005 suggests that happiness in most cases leads to success.
