What the Aztecs Can Teach Us About Happiness and the Good Life

In the spring semester of the school year, I teach a class called ‘Happiness’. It’s always packed with students because, like most people, they want to learn the secret to feeling fulfilled.

‘How many of you want to be happy in life?’ I ask.

Everyone raises a hand. Always. ‘How many of you are planning to have children?’ Almost everyone raises their hand again.

Farm-to-Table Communities Create Sustainable Suburban "Agri-Hoods"

by Robin Plaskoff-Horton | Urban Gardens

Where you live is the foundation of your lifestyle.

Urban areas lend themselves to a lifestyle of social interaction, cultural events, career climbing, and because of limited space, world-building that includes what’s outside of the home more than what’s inside.

Where Does Kindness Come From?

by Emiliana R. Simon-Thomas | Greater Good Science Center

What’s behind your choice to help another human being? Are you motivated by sheer, unadulterated benevolence? Do you do it only if the cost is minimal, or the benefits great? Or are you hoping for a favor in return? Or is it about image—are you trying to avoid being tagged as selfish? Maybe you’re motivated by a higher sense of principle, trying to restore fairness?

Better Hearing in the Dominican Republic Provided by Hear the World Foundation and Sonova Group

Sisters Camil and Shenoa bounce around the playground at Centro Cristiano de Servicios Medicos in a busy neighborhood of Santo Domingo, in the Dominican Republic. They show me how they can do handstands and other acrobatic tricks as their parents proudly inform me of their daughters’ achievements. At just 12 years old, Camil participates in one of the country’s national junior volleyball leagues. She’s tall and strong and plays the position of “atacador,” she tells me.
