Tibetan monk Matthieu Ricard makes the interesting distinction between happiness and pleasure. He says that pleasure is a fickle emotion, and real happiness is more a sense of well-being. Check out his thoughts on happiness in this lighthearted TED talk.

The way he talks about happiness is very in line with something that’s been on my mind for a while. Is happiness a choice? What do you guys think? Can we transform our own minds and choose happiness? I believe that we can!
