In their first study, the researchers had two groups listen to “happy music”. Those who actively tried to feel happier reported the highest level of positive mood afterwards. In their second study two groups listened to a range of “positive ” music over a two-week period and those who were instructed to focus on improving their happiness experienced a greater increase in happiness that the group who were told to just focus on the music. The researchers said the factor making one grou0p0 happier than the other seemed to be a combination of actively trying to become happier  and using the right method-listening to happy music. These finding challenge earlier studies that concluded that trying to become happier was counterproductive.
