“Happiness Designer” Stefan Sagmeister is working on a film about happiness and shared his seven tips for making more happiness in an inspiring TED Talk.
He analyzed data on happiness and found that happiness doesn’t have much to do with race, sex, age, or even economic status. So, what does make us happy?
What his happiness tips seem to boil down to are taking control of your life, forming meaningful relationships, seeking out new experiences, and making an effort to work on creative projects that are meaningful to you. I think I’d also add that just taking the time to think about what makes you happy can really increase your happiness.
I’d love to hear from you guys! What makes you happy? Let’s spread some joy in the comments!
