TED Talk Thursday ~ Five Ways to Wellbeing ~ Connect, Be Active, Take Notice, Keep Learning, Give

The challenge is, that possibly — and the thing we might have to think about — is that the future might not be North American, might not be Western European. It might be Latin American. ~ Nic Marks ~ 

This week I returned to my regular routine and part of my week consists of volunteering with the language school teaching English.  The theme for the last couple of weeks has been “Happy” and my fellow volunteers have used the song “Happy” by Pharrell Williams to discuss what “happy” means and what makes them happy.

When we talked about “Happiness is:” the simplicity of the answers from the children was interesting, which led me to today’s TED Talk.  If you’re concerned about learning how to be happy look no further than the title of today’s post, the answers are found there.

If you’re interested in going further, watch today’s talk.  It’s by Nic Marks, an expert in the field of well-being research, a member of the International Society for Quality of Life Studies and the creator of The Happy Planet Index.
