Filmed on five continents, this documentary combines powerful stories and remarkable case studies with serious brain science to lead viewers toward a deeper understanding of how they can actively pursue a happier life. A diverse group of individuals from around the world provides the "how"-the attitudes and activities that make them feel deeply and lastingly happy-while popular experts on positive psychology such as Daniel Gilbert, Sonja Lyubomirsky, Ed Diener, and Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi provide the "why." Key discussion points on promoting intrinsic personal happiness include connectedness, generosity, compassion, novelty, play, and flow; potentially harmful effects of chasing materialistic happiness-epitomized by karoshi, death from overwork-are considered as well. Accessible and informative! A viewable/printable instructor's guide is available online.
