Week 8 Assignment is Below
Discussion 1: What is Happiness? ( Split the citation up between the Main Posing and Response a piece. I still have to find a article from the school website to be used as one of the citation in both area.}
How happiness and well-being are defined varies around the globe. For instance, in some cultures, happiness is closely linked to economic well-being and in other cultures, happiness is linked to being closer to home. As an additional example, in some societies, happiness is connected to individual advancement, whereas in other societies ones personal happiness is linked to the well-being of the group.
For this Discussion, you will explore the influences of happiness and how they vary according to culture.
