Five Happiness Myths that Society (and Your Brain) Want You to Believe
About this course:
Conventional wisdom is a reflection of consensus more so than truth, something which is clearly apparent in the myths that society presents to us about happiness. These myths persist, in part, because they serve a purpose for society, even if they are a disadvantage to you. In this fun and engaging presentation, we separate fact from fiction and explore what fuels these powerful myths, and why you might still be acting upon them even if you know better! (Hint: different parts of your brain are accomplices.) You’ll leave with a better theoretical and evidence-based understanding of human well-being and tips for maximizing your own happiness.
