We’ll be discussing the Psychology of Happiness. Oh, and there will be wine and food.. TED’s Understanding Happiness will provide learners with a deeper knowledge of:
The measurement of happiness (and unhappiness)
When and why people feel at their most happy (physiologically and psychologically)
The extent to which people are predisposed to be happy
Effective (and ineffective) methods to increase and sustain happiness
How our preferences and beliefs determine happiness
How choice, freedom, and embracing diversity influence collective happiness
Advances in the theory and applications of positive psychology.
Watch a TED talk (https://www.ted.com/participate/organize-a-local-tedx-event/tedx-organizer-guide/speakers-program/what-is-a-tedx-talk). Drink wine (or beer or soda or flavored water or even coffee). Discuss with friends.
Showtime starts at 7:30.
We’ll watch the first Talk and then break for 15 minutes or so to discuss it, refresh drinks, etc. Then we’ll watch the second Talk; when its finished we can discuss the second Talk, compare/contrast the two Talks, refresh drinks, go potty, etc. Then no more videos, just socializing. 🙂
Come meet friends and #LiveBetter.
The specific Talks will be a surprise, but they will both relate to the theme.
