For Kyla and All Who Want to Be Happy!

I’ve been watching countless TED talks for my capstone project (for those of you who don’t know, it is a TED talk on ADHD/treatment – tentatively titled: why my diagnosis does not define me), and I stumbled upon this one that may be of great interest to Kyla (since her project is focused on happiness) and any/all who want to be happy (which I imagine is everyone!).

TED Talk: Want to be happy? Be grateful.

In the talk, Brother David Steindly-Rast, a monk and interfaith scholar, suggests that happiness is born from gratitude. And that every moment offers an opportunity to be grateful. How can each of us find a method to be grateful? *spoiler alert* He offers very simple advice to “Stop. Look. and Go.” Hope you all enjoy this (14 minute 30 second – ample time for a study break!) lesson in slowing down, looking where you’re going, and above all, being grateful.

Another link for Kyla and others interested in how to be happier – “The Science of Happiness – An Experiment in Gratitude.”

Sending you all good vibes during these chaotic next couple of weeks.

  1. Oh my gosh I just saw this!! NOOOO!! But that’s so much for the great resource!! I can still use it anyways, because if there’s one thing my project has taught me it’s that you’re never to busy to try to be happy :)) Thanks!!
