Want to be happier? Here's a start...

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Friday, July 12, 2013

I just watched this TED talk on happiness and it is astounding and so timely for me. I know 13 minutes feels like an ETERNITY to devote to watching a video online in our 2-minute clip YouTube generation, but I can almost 100% guarantee that you will be entertained by this and it will make you think about your level of happiness in life. I, for one, am going to take his 21-day challenge. How bout you?

    Thanks for sharing. Great video. I think I will try the 21-day re-training. The Sparkpeople journal would be a convenient place to do the three gratitudes and the daily positive experience.

  I've never heard of him.

I really enjoyed him, and he has a wonderful sense of humor too.

I agreed with everything he said, but would adapt the meditation thing toward my faith. And that is certainly doable.

Thanks for sharing this interesting speaker!

    Ooh I'll have to check this out after work. LOL you're so right, 13 minutes does seem SUPER long, and it's totally because we're all so used to quick youtube clips and news blurbs and so on. Ahhh, attention spans - I wonder what it would have been like to go through life with one of those. :)
