Over the past century, the world has experienced exponential growth in academia, human knowledge, science and technology, and financial and material wealth. Human beings have made significant progress in religious understanding, space exploration, medical research, and in the treatment and eradication of some common diseases such as smallpox, measles, yellow fever, and polio (poliomyelitis).

 The thoughtful observer could envisage a “new” world that blossom’s into a “new era” of high civilization with peace and prosperity, and hope and happiness. Instead, humanity has been ushered into the “global village,” observably unprepared to manage national and international challenges that seem to suffocate hope and happiness of many.

“Discovering Your Optimum “Happiness Index” (OHI) is a book that puts forward that a “materially driven life” may bolster ones’ lifestyle, but one’s lifestyle is not fundamentally intrinsic to happiness. It contends that the potency of “Optimum Happiness” is a higher imperative of happiness underpinned by the “Spiritual” and the “Natural.”

This book is not essentially a scientific treatise on happiness, but it presents a “new” narrative that will engage individuals in the fields of psychology, sociology, and other social science disciplines. The discourse is an alternative approach to the “Search for Happiness,” based on multigenerational family life experiences, nurturing children, experiential knowledge, intuitive, intellectual and empirical observation, and global travel.

It offers the reader a broad spectrum of inquiry into the influence of human attributes, achievements, and customs on one’s health, well-being, and happiness. The “Happiness Index” methodology will take the reader on a journey of discovery where he or she can find happiness in the midst of plenty (wealth), likewise in the midst of scarcity (poverty). Regardless of your station in life, this book will help to brighten your path to happiness,” not merely as a lifestyle, but as a “life of fulfillment.”

Contributor Bio(s): Gibbs, Errol a.: - Errol and Marjorie Gibbs are avid readers, self-inspired researchers, and writers. They are Canadians citizens who reside in Milton, Ontario. Religious, scientific, educational, philosophical, and humanitarian pursuits highlight their work. Multigenerational family life, nurturing children, community, business, and corporate experience underpin their quest to inspire happiness in others through their seminal work "Discovering Your Optimum "Happiness Index" (OHI)." Marjorie and Errol have had the privilege of combined global travel on four continents such as Africa, Europe, North America, and Oceania in approximately twelve countries, twenty-four states, and about one hundred cities, towns, and villages over several decades. Global travel afforded the writers a "panoramic view" of the human landscape to observe how people in various parts of the world experience happiness and unhappiness, co-existing in a cultural mix of plenty (wealth) and scarcity (poverty). Their observation was the same in every culture -the need for love, peace, hope, happiness, and "Joy" resonated in people's lives. Marjorie and Errol live "Optimum Happy" lives. "Optimum Happiness" (OH) does not imply that they have great wealth, live in a mansion, drive exotic automobiles, or socialize with prominent figures in society. Their perspective on happiness is to reverence a higher moral authority; to extend love and loyalty to family, friends, and associates; and to exercise integrity in business as fundamental imperatives of happiness, success, and successful living. The writers do not make any claim of training in psychology, sociology, or any of the other social science disciplines. Nevertheless, they recognize that a "materially driven life" may boost ones' lifestyle, but they contend that materialism is not fundamentally intrinsic to happiness. Discovering Your Optimum "Happiness Index" (OHI) is their way to engage peoples, communities, and nations, to inform of the intrinsic benefits of "Optimum Happiness" (OH) to human survival as a viable species.
