What? We did just go to the James Turrell retrospective—how did you know?
We just wanted to write a brief piece to share a really great TED Radio Hour we heard this past weekend devoted to happiness and how finding it might be a little easier than we all think.
For anyone who doesn’t already know, TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) is a nonprofit devoted to ‘Ideas Worth Spreading’. It started as a four-day conference in California 25 years ago and has since grown into a global platform for identifying and spreading world-changing ideas.
In this TED Radio Hour, host Guy Raz assembles short, easy-to-digest pieces from a team of experts to address how things like the pace of our lives, the things we surround ourselves with, and the simple concept of gratefulness all affect our overall happiness. Speakers include the inventor of the Track Your Happiness app, the author of In Praise of Slowness, the founder of small-space-living company LifeEdited, a psychologist who argues that our beliefs about what will make us happy are often wrong, and a Benedictine monk who writes about gratefulness.
So we implore you to now leave this Web site, head on over to TED’s, and take an hour out of your day to find a little happiness. We promise—it’ll be worth it.
Have a great weekend everyone!
