Stephen Sackur speaks to American psychologist Professor Laurie Santos, whose work at Yale University on the science of happiness has won her an audience of millions thanks to her podcast and free online courses. With strict lockdowns in many countries around the world, isolation, economic insecurity, the absence of family and friends, Covid is putting enormous pressure on our mental health. Can we really learn how to be happy?

When you read the regrets people have before they die, it will change the way you live – join me here today
Watch & Share Today.
Excerpt from an article from entrepreneur:
Before you judge yourself — or someone else — on what didn’t get done today, reflect on the bigger picture. Take a moment, maybe even close your eyes, to reflect on what you’re working on and why it’s important to you to get it done. Then, read on.
“I wish I had worked more,” said no one on their deathbed.
I know it’s hard to think about a time that (hopefully) is a long time away from today. No one wants to think about dying! So back it up a bit. Open your calendar, and fast-forward 90 days. Ask yourself this question, “What will I wish I had spent a little more time on?” That question will get you thinking – reflecting, really — on where you need to spend a little more time tonight!
Regret takes a toll on us. Not just our hearts but on our souls. When we let people down, when we do the bare minimum when we know we should have given it our all or when we simply just didn’t show up, emotionally or physically, they take a toll. Some regrets we can move past in a moment, others linger for a lifetime.

In his day job, Phil works with those on the very edge of society – men with a neurodevelopmental disorder, who have (in general) committed at least one relatively serious criminal offence. In this context, he has seen first-hand the huge benefits of intentionally teaching moral reasoning.
What impact could it have we taught this in schools, and in any other forum available? Not in a generic or abstract way, not by chance or just by example – but intentionally, by design, through dedicated, evidence-based courses.
Using personal stories, research evidence, live examples and perhaps a little neuroscience, his aim is to illuminate the opportunities available in this sphere. To ask:
Could we avoid the worst-case scenario of people ending up in my care? Could we set our students up for a healthier future? Could we make our world a safer, kinder place? And could we inspire future generations – indeed all generations – to consider the kind of people they are, and how they can positively shape the world in which they live?
Phill’s day job is as a Speciality Doctor in Forensic Neurodevelopmental Psychiatry, working with an inpatient population of men with a Learning Disability and/or Autistic Spectrum Condition who are detained under the Mental Health Act. He is also an Associate Pastor at Proclaimers – a dynamic, relevant, welcoming church with campuses in Norwich, Ipswich and Bratislava. He has been speaking on one stage or another for over 10 years; and is known for communicating with creativity, insight and humour.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

What does it take to be happy? The Nordic countries seem to have it all figured out. Finland and Denmark have consistently topped the United Nations’ most prestigious index, The World Happiness Report, in all six areas of life satisfaction: income, healthy life expectancy, social support, freedom, trust and generosity.

Each year, a group of happiness experts from around the globe rank 156 countries based on how “happy” citizens are, and they publish their findings in the World Happiness Report. Happiness might seem like an elusive concept to quantify, but there is a science to it.
When researchers talk about “happiness,” they’re referring to “satisfaction with the way one’s life is going,” Jeff Sachs, co-creator of the World Happiness Report and a professor at Columbia University, tells CNBC Make It.
“It’s not primarily a measure of whether one laughed or smiled yesterday, but how one feels about the course of one’s life,” he says.
Since the report began in 2012, Nordic countries — which include Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Iceland, plus the Faroe Islands, Greenland and Aland — consistently turn up at the top of the list. (The United States, on the other hand, typically lands somewhere around 18th or 19th place.)
