{ Translating Academic Research Into Engaging & Actionable Behaviors } “The Science of Happiness” Video Series

The Science of Happiness – An Experiment In Gratitude, published July 11, 2013.

I was thrilled to discover Soul Pancake‘s The Science of Happiness video series, which takes “an experimental approach on what makes people happier”. The series, which is composed of 12 videos, focuses on sharing, in an engaging and actionable way, findings from dry academic research on the science of happiness. Topics explored range from the impact of forgiveness, gratitude, art therapy, positive thinking, and kindness on happiness.

Head over to Soul Pancake’s YouTube channel to check out more of the Science of Happiness videos, as well as behind the scenes cuts and video responses from the audience after the Science of Happiness folks put out a call for people to do the gratitude experiment themselves.

The Science of Happiness crew and format will be back for a second season, exploring love and relationships.
