Right now, my freshmen are reading Gretchen Rubin's book, The Happiness Project, all the while cooking up happiness projects of their own. To supplement this unit, I've been reading a lot on the subject, and one of my favorite resources is Shawn Achor. Even my freshmen found his TED Talk funny; maybe because he has a way of sharing research in a way that sounds more stand-up than science-y.
So, when I find blogs like this one, where he talks about concrete ways to improve our levels of happiness, I just have to share. I mean, easy ways to get happy that don't involve illegal substances? Who can resist?
I hope your weekend is filled with happiness.
