Dan Gilbert on the New Science of Happiness

As a follow-up to my series of blog spots on the new science of happiness, I reviewed an interesting playlist of TED talks on the topic. One of my favorites is this one from Dan Gilbert, Harvard psychologist and author, who asks, “Why Are We Happy?

Gilbert makes the point that we can create our own happiness and we value synthetic happiness just as much as natural happiness.

What do you think?

Watch the video, it’s full of scientific evidence AND humor!
