Enjoy your past, present and future equally to be happiest

If you reminesce over fond memories, take time to enjoy the moment and also look forward to what the future holds in equal measure, this is a recipe for happiness, says new research published in the Journal of Happiness Studies. Focus more on one period over another, though, and this throws things off — a balanced perspective is best, the findings show.

For example, I fondly remember the NKOTBSB concert last year, am currently enjoying listening to their music as I type this (I think I need to rewatch this performance in fact), and I’m looking forward to the potential future tour the two groups are in talks for (with Kevin — he’s rejoined Backstreet Boys, Oh. Em. Gee!) — OK, so maybe I’m looking forward to the potential upcoming concert more than the other two — I’ll try to rein that in!
