The Injury and Pain Relief Clinic

A human issue for today's blog entry... Happiness.

All of us want it and strive toward it, addressing it in different ways. Children are taught fairy tales where people live happily ever after. That isn't reality of course, but we still seek that very thing.

Watching and listening to Nancy Etcoff presenting a TED talk on Happiness was very interesting and enlightening. What I got out of her talk is the following:

  • We are programmed to seek happiness.
  • High levels of happiness are unsustainable.
  • Small increases in happiness over time provides a more general happiness level over that period of time. Or as a friend put it, "Give yourself fun things to look forward to."

Check out the TED talk yourself and see what you think. http://www.ted.com/talks/lang/eng/nancy_etcoff_on_happiness_and_why_we_want_it.html
