I recently saw a great docmentary called Happy. The description of the movie says:
Does money make you HAPPY? Kids and family? Your work? Do you live in a world that values and promotes happiness and well-being? Are we in the midst of a happiness revolution?
Roko Belic, director of the Academy Award® nominated “Genghis Blues” now brings us HAPPY, a film that sets out to answer these questions and more. Taking us from the bayous of Louisiana to the deserts of Namibia, from the beaches of Brazil to the villages of Okinawa, HAPPY explores the secrets behind our most valued emotion.
The movie reports recent research that suggests that counting your blessings, and doing random acts of kindness is are probably the best ways to achieve happiness. Here is one of my favourite clips:
