George Lawton on Cultivating Happiness

February 22, 2011

George Lawton studies happiness, and how to have more of it. In the video below, he talks about emotional feedback tools, his research on how to incrementally increase happiness, and how he tried to change his mood by changing his facial expressions. George also discusses mirror meditation as a way to increase emotional well-being, engages the audience with healthy laughter, and mentions his next project, on love. (Filmed at the Bay Area Quantified Self meetup held at Adaptive Path).
