Everyone wants to be happy but most of us cannot answer to the simple question, why are we unhappy? Many people try doing things differently or believe certain things like landing a better, high paid job will make us happy, but it still does not. In this episode of Learn with Bessern, we will be talking about how happiness is affected through our perceptions, our behavior and our brain.

Our guest speaker Dr. Louise Lambert will help us uncover the truth from a scientific perspective on happiness and demystify common beliefs about what it is and what it is not. In general, happiness is understood as the positive emotions we have in regards to the pleasurable activities we take part in through our daily lives. Pleasure, comfort, gratitude, hope, and inspiration are examples of positive emotions that increase our happiness and move us to flourish.
