  1. Lainey,

    Excellent and important article as it relates to the possibilities for well-being and enjoyment in everyone’s short journey on earth. A leading author and speaker on the subject is Dr. Tal Ben Shachar, who graduated from Harvard College (where he was a varsity squash player), and Harvard University (where he earned his doctorate degree in psychology). He also taught for 10+ years the most popular course “Happiness” at Harvard and Columbia. PS, he happens to be my cousin, who lives now in a swanky area of northern Bergen County. His lectures include the economic benefits of happiness in the academic and office environments. Because you are our dearest friends, he might be willing to address your class without charge. In my experience, his speaking fees are geared to large company retreats, and the like.
