If you've spent your entire life running away from your problems; good news - you've been doing all the right things. Despite what we've been told about 'dealing' with things, it turns out that people who find ways ignore their problems are happier.

According to a story in Huffington Post, we will eventually have to deal with most of these problems, but ignoring them for a while accomplished two things:

  1. Distractions help you to forget the problems bringing you happiness for a while.
  2. Stepping away from the problems actually help you come up with better solutions.

Dr. Wayne Dyer says there are two different kinds of things in this world, "Things you can do something about, and things you can't do anything about." It makes no sense worrying about things you can't do anything about -- because you can't do anything about them. And it makes no sense worrying about things you can do something about -- because you can do something about those.

Bottom line; quit worrying about your problems. It doesn't help.
