UBC dialogues : in search of happiness : is there a secret to feeling content? Tobin, Shiral; Dunn, Elizabeth; Innes, John; Wang, Holman; Zhao, Jiaying

Description

What is the key to happiness? Is it family relationships? Wealth? Job satisfaction? Helping others? Perhaps we need to spend more time in nature, and less time in cities. And is happiness a universal feeling, or are there significant differences in the experience of it based on culture, age or other factors? There are so many ideas about where happiness comes from, yet many of us still struggle to find it. Are some people simply hardwired to be happy and others not, or is it a state of mind that can be consciously pursued?
