Dan Gilbert, author of “Stumbling on Happiness,” challenges the idea that we’ll be miserable if we don’t get what we want. Our “psychological immune system” lets us feel truly happy even when things don’t go as planned.
What was surprising to you about this TED talk? What was your take away?
DoSomething.org is a social movement site that uses easy steps to help change the world. We recently came across the Love Letters campaign and wanted to share it with you! Love Letters is a campaign to make Valentine’s Day cards “to show an older adult you care.”
Getting older can be pretty lonely. In fact, as of 2012, 11.8 million American seniors live alone and face isolation due to location, disability, or language barriers.
We know that isolation isn’t just an adolescent thing – it can happen to anyone, so we wanted to encourage you to reach out this winter season to someone else who may be feeling what you feel.
It ends February 15th and it is very easy to sign up for the site and then submit your card!
Let us know if you decide to join in! Do you think that this is a good idea?
