Save the Planet and the Happiness of its People

We all want to know how to be happy, but what is the secret to happiness? What makes people happy? In our society money and happiness appear to go hand in hand. Research, however, shows that wealth just doesn't rank when it comes to true happiness.

I really love this presentation by Nic Marks. Nic poses the question, "Why is a nation's success measured by its productivity instead of by the happiness and well-being of its people?". He shares evidence about what makes people happy, and promotes a policy that puts the well-being of people and the planet first.

A fantastic perspective and new approach to promoting causes that matter to all of us. Saving the planet and our happiness, what could be more important than that?

So what is the secret to happiness?

  1. oh man, I had a nice long reply that didn't post! Anyhow, let me say that I LOVED that I could watch it with subtitles. =) I think I'm doing above average for my personal happy index...I love to learn, I have a deep desire to connect, I enjoy giving to others & I've taken more notice than ever before. I DO need to be more active...I'm not as active as I used to be & I know that will help to keep my head clear. =)

    Thanks for sharing Ash - a great message I needed to more gloom & doom outlook, as difficult as it can be for me.
