What does happiness mean to you?

Researchers have determined that personal happiness is a predictor of health, longevity, and societal contentment, so it’s essential to understand what makes us happy and how to achieve it.

Happiness means something different to each individual—ask 100 people what it means, and you’ll get 100 different answers. And given that what makes us happy frequently changes throughout our lifetime, it’s little wonder that it’s difficult to agree on a single definition of happiness. In this course you'll explore the meaning of happiness.
