English presentation on happiness

Reading practice on happiness

Keep a gratitude journal

Gratitude definition in context

If someone were to ask you what you’re grateful for in the present moment, would you have an answer ready to go? Could you easily recall the small moments in your day that bring you the most joy? The simple habit of reflecting on what you’re grateful for can actually lead to a happier, more content life. All it takes is a few moments of your time and a gratitude journal to record your thoughts. Gratitude journals are not unlike the diary you kept as a teenager, but instead of writing random thoughts about your day, you write about the things you’re grateful for—big or small.


Hedonism and happiness

Hedonism meaning in real context with images

Hedonism is a way of life, characterised by openness to pleasurable experience. There are many qualms about hedonism. It is rejected on moral grounds and said to be detrimental to long-term happiness. Several mechanisms for this ‘paradox of hedonism’ have been suggested and telling examples of pleasure seekers ending up in despair have been given. But is that the rule? If so, how much pleasure is too much?


Genetics and happiness

Practice reading & listening on Genetics at LELB Society with flashcards and podcast for IELTS & TOEFL

According to an influential article published in Review of General Psychology in 2005, 50% of people’s happiness is determined by their genes, 10% depends on their circumstances and 40% on “intentional activity” (mainly, whether you’re positive or not). This so-called happiness pie put positive-psychology acolytes in the driving seat, allowing them to decide on their happiness trajectory. (Although, the unspoken message is that if you are unhappy, it’s your own fault.)


Positive thinking and happiness

English webinar on positive thinking for IELTS & TOEFL candidates to practice reading and vocabulary

You can boost your happiness by focusing on positive things and reducing your negative thinking. This week, follow every negative thought with a positive one. This practice will help to retrain your habitual thought patterns to bring more positive thoughts into your life.

The ratio of positive to negative thoughts is a major factor in overall happiness. Your brain is constantly monitoring the emotional tone of your thoughts—too many negative thoughts and your brain responds by creating stress and sadness in your body. When you add more positive thoughts, your brain will create relaxation and happiness.


Eudaimonia and happiness

Free English Webinar on Positive Thinking

Eudaimonia is often taken to mean happiness. Sometimes it is translated from the original ancient Greek as welfare, sometimes flourishing, and sometimes as wellbeing. The concept of Eudaimonia comes from Aristotle’s philosophy on the ‘science of happiness’.

Eudaimonia is defined in this way: Wellbeing is not so much an outcome or end state as it is a process of fulfilling or realizing one’s daimon or true nature—that is, of fulfilling one’s virtuous potentials and living as one was inherently intended to live.
