Grounded in the positive psychology movement, Dr. Tal Ben-Shahar combines scientific studies, scholarly research, self-help advice, and spiritual enlightenment to teach people how to learn to be happy. In a WGBH Boston and Connecticut Public Television joint production, Happiness 101 with Tal Ben-Shahar, Ben-Shahar weaves together a set of principles that you can apply to your daily life. Once you open your heart and mind to happier thoughts, you will feel more fulfilled, more connected, and yes, happier. The national PBS program HAPPINESS 101with Tal Ben-Shahar will be based on what became Harvard University's most popular course of all time — a class on happiness. Starting with his own personal story, Ben-Shahar will lay out his keys to happiness, how giving yourself the permission to be human, keeping a sound mind and body, simplifying your life, and expressing gratitude are all important steps in becoming happier. Ben-Shahar will share his personal experience and offer actual steps you can take. Grounded in a growing body of research, science is making real inroads in understanding happiness by documenting a more concrete understanding of what happiness means. In this hour-long special Ben-Shahar will explain this new world of research, and share some very preliminary steps we can all take to apply the knowledge from this research to our own lives. The PBS show will also include important voices in the field of positive psychology, including Dr. John Ratey on the power of exercise, Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn on mindfulness meditation, Dr. Richard Kadison on happiness and depression, and Dr. Sonja Lyubomirsky on the importance of gratitude. All these experts will add their individual stories and knowledge to this important program.
