B This next one is a clip from 20/20 on happiness. This clip includes comments from Sonja Lyubomirsky who is a well-known researcher on happiness. This one is a bit more jazzy than the one above, but less informative (but still pretty good on summarizing the literature on aspects of happiness). Here’s a link to the clip, (Links to an external site.)

After watching the clip, answer the following questions:

  1. What are the meaningful components of happiness?
  2. What key points were made by Dr. Lyubomirsky about happiness not mentioned in your first response above?
  3. Are you a happy person? Why or why not?
  4. Using this information, what things can you do to be happier? Again, use information from the clip to formulate your response.
