Can I every really be happy?

Is it true that money can’t buy happiness?

Will more friends help make me feel more happy?

What is happiness anyway?

This Emotional Life is a two-year outreach campaign anchored by a PBS series, in partnership with Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, (airing January 4 – 6, 2010 — that’s starting tonight!) that examines the science behind our emotions, the challenges to our well-being, and the keys to happier lives.

This is a groundbreaking endeavor that is focused on emotional well-being and happiness, and designed to help people foster stronger social relationships. Spearheaded by Allen’s Vulcan Productions, the project includes a three-part, nationally broadcast series on PBS, a dynamic website, a national outreach campaign, and educational toolkits created to support two topics within this series which we felt required additional action.

I’m looking forward to the series and it will hopefully spur a new blog post in the future about the nature of happiness and tips we can employ to increase happiness in our everyday lives.
