What we don’t recognise about happiness

I love TED Talks and have made a pledge to myself to watch more of them this year, as I find them so interesting and inspiring. In apparently one of the most popular talks ever ‘The Surprising Science of Happiness’– speaker Dan Gilbert talks about happiness and presents research suggesting a real ignorance we (as a collective) have as to what defines whether we are happy or unhappy. He also discusses how we can produce happiness in ourselves and the fact that we have far more control over our own happiness than we think.
