What Happened: A new study published in the journal Nature Neuroscience suggested that those who participate in a wider array of pleasurable activities generally feel more positive.

Researchers tracked participants for three or four months, measuring their activities and self-reported feelings. “The results showed that on days when people had more variability in their physical location — visiting more locations in a day and spending proportionately equitable time across these locations — they reported feeling more positive,” a press release shared.

What the brain says: Researchers took their work a step further and looked at brain activity in half of the study participants’ brains via MRI.
