For love of the game

Norwegian county Nord-Trøndelag - record of contribution to science.

For love of the game

The scientists were interested in cancer and diabetes, allergies and obesity, disease of the lungs and heart. Only recently, at the same time they decided to find out about ... happiness. Employees of Norwegian University of Science and Technology analyzed what work they love and where to go 50 797 men and women Nord-Trøndelag and how they are satisfied with their lives. It turned out that neither the income nor education does not play a decisive role. Much more important is the love of art! Happier makes us like his own work, as well as visits to museums, concerts and theaters. So it makes sense to get abandoned watercolor sketches, enroll in a dance studio - or on a cold evening prefer the couch theatrical premiere!
