Can Money Buy Happiness?

Today, at the beginning of the new year, I like to share two incredible videos to make you think about happiness.

The first one is called: What Makes a Good Life? and was giving by Robert Waldinger:

The extract from TED website is:

What keeps us happy and healthy as we go through life? If you think it’s fame and money, you’re not alone – but, according to psychiatrist Robert Waldinger, you’re mistaken. As the director of a 75-year-old study on adult development, Waldinger has unprecedented access to data on true happiness and satisfaction. In this talk, he shares three important lessons learned from the study as well as some practical, old-as-the-hills wisdom on how to build a fulfilling, long life.

The second video is: The Price of Hapiness by Benjamin Wallace. The extract is:

Can happiness be bought? To find out, author Benjamin Wallace sampled the world’s most expensive products, including a bottle of 1947 Chateau Cheval Blanc, 8 ounces of Kobe beef and the fabled (notorious) Kopi Luwak coffee. His critique may surprise you.

The intention to re-publish both videos is to make us think about happiness and why we pursuit it. Let me know your comments below.
