Happiness


Posted by Tony Mellor on Friday, December 11th, 2009

Hello everyone!

I have just watched this lecture by a guy called Dan Gilbert
http://www.ted.com/talks/dan_gilbert_asks_why_are_we_happy.html

Dan talks about the reasons behind people’s happiness and what can make a person happy. Interestingly ‘happiness’ can be synthesised, but often people think that happiness is something to be found. This can be linked to alcoholism/addiction and recovery because when we are given a choice it can affect our happiness, and for me it proves that recovery gives us a healthy discipline.

Have a watch and let me know!
