The Happiness Advantage

Hi all!  Thought you may be interested in this TED.com talk on the Happiness Advantage.  Shawn Achor, a Harvard Psychology researcher, discusses his research on happiness and the many benefits of happy people including better performing brains (maybe we can actually begin to see what the brain is capable of); a rise in our creativity, intelligence, and energy; we are better at securing jobs and keeping jobs; we are more resilient and experience less burnout and less turnover.  It’s interesting to think of the public health implications for the public health workforce and for our work!
