Happy? Consider how giving builds a life of meaning

Research output: Contribution to Newspaper/Magazine/BulletinArticle

Abstract

In The Conversation’s series On Happiness, it has been pointed out that the pursuit of happiness for its own sake might be a futile and even counterproductive enterprise. It has also been pointed out that happiness, however important to us, is merely a beneficial side-effect of a eudaimonic approach to pursuing a life of meaning. I agree very much with these views.
