AWARE divers are the happiest divers. How do we know? Studies show that the secret to happiness is doing good. Over the last several years scientists have studied what’s been dubbed the “helper’s high”. What did they find? The amount of purpose in peoples’ lives determined their degree of happiness. In fact, the more people participated in meaningful activities, the better they felt.
