Live from Abu Dhabi Connect the World takes you on a journey across continents, investigating the stories that are changing our world.
Does being happy make you healthier? Do genetics play a role in happiness?
Thursday was the UN’s International Day of Happiness. To mark it, Connect the World investigated the pursuit of happiness, and the science behind it.
Becky spoke to Ludvig Lindstrom, President of the World Happiness Organization, about how we measure happiness.
She also spoke to Mark Williamson, Director of Action for Happiness. He said that while happiness is important, it doesn’t mean that everyone has to be happy all the time. "Today's day is about saying our priorities in life are about being able to live the best possible and the happiest possible life, but recognising that every life has good and bad situations."
Becky then took to the streets to ask Londoners what makes them happy. Their answers may surprise you!
