Read the above article on Happiness and watch the video on Positive Psychology. How important is it for the field of Psychology to focus on happiness? Prior to reading the article were there any of the “eight steps toward a more satisfying life” you had practiced? Take the survey at the end, how did you do? Surprised? If you had to choose between being healthy (mentally & physically) or happy, which would you choose and why?  What do you believe is the relationship between health, happiness, and spirituality?  Does one cause the other?
