LONDON - If you want to be happy, think positive and take a break from your mobile phone -- that's the advice from a new global movement for happiness whose members include the Dalai Lama.

Action for Happiness, set up last year and due to be officially launched in London on Tuesday, says it rejects individualism and the pursuit of material wealth and provides alternative practical tips for a happier life.The movement, co-founded by Richard Layard, an economics professor at the London School of Economics and an expert on happiness, is supported by more than 4,500 individual members from 68 countries.

In support of its argument, the group said surveys of Britons and Americans show that they are no more content now than in the 1950s despite substantial economic progress.
