Two ways to be happy - 2 TED talks followed by discussion.

TED TALK 1: What keeps us happy and healthy as we go through life?
In this talk, Robert Waldinger shares three important lessons from a 75-year-long study on adult development, as well as some practical, old-as-the-hills wisdom on how to build a fulfilling, happy life. This 75 year continuing study gives Prof Waldinger unprecedented access to data on true happiness and satisfaction.

Robert Waldinger is Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and directs the Harvard Study of Adult Development, one of the longest-running studies of adult life ever done.

TED TALK 2: Making other people and yourself happy
by Jessica Jackley
Seven years ago, Jessica Jackley heard a speech by Grameen Bank founder Muhammad Yunus, an economist from Bangladesh who had developed the idea of microcredit: loans offered to entrepreneurs too poor to qualify for traditional bank loans. She says, "I was so completely blown away by the idea that I quit my job, dropped everything and moved to East Africa to help."
What do you think of people in poverty? Maybe what Jessica Jackley once did: "they" need "our" help, in the form of a few coins in a jar. The co-founder of Kiva.org talks about how her attitude changed -- and how her work with microloans has brought new power to people who live on a few dollars a day.

This event is part of the THINKING ALLOWED series that are run (once a month) at Orchardhill
