What is the biggest difference between what you thought would make you happy when you were younger and what did make you happy as you got older?

STEP 1: Watch this TED talk by Robert Waldinger, psychiatrist and professor at Harvard Medical School. He discusses some of the results of the Grant study, which has followed groups of men over a 75 year, longitudinal study, and explains some of the factors leading to a happy life.

 

STEP 2: After viewing this video about lessons from the longest study on happiness, ask yourself and write down your answers the following questions.

How do I define happiness for myself?
Do I consider myself a happy person right now?
What do I need in my life in order to be happy now and in the future?
Who are the people in my life who affect my happiness?
Do you think you will feel the same when you turn 65? Why or why not?

STEP 3: Talk to a grandparent or another relative or person you know who is at least 60 years old and ask them the following questions (include their responses with your final paper).

How do you define happiness for yourself?
Do you consider yourself a happy person right now?
What do you need in your life in order to be happy now and in the future?
Who are the people in your life who affect your happiness?
Did you feel the same way when you were my age?
What is the biggest difference between what you thought would make you happy when you were younger and what did make you happy as you got older?

STEP 4: Write a 4-5 page paper that synthesizes and reflects upon the responses to these questions. As you write the paper, compare and contrast your own answers to the questions and those provided by the older person you interviewed. Were there similarities in your answers? What were some of the differences? Do you think happiness means something vastly different for younger vs. older people? Explain.

Example:
Smith, R. (2019, July 29). Personal interview.

The paper should be 12 point font with 1 inch margins.

Essay Question

Designing a Wellbeing Intervention

“Critically present and discuss the design of an intervention to tackle a key well-being issue within the workplace.” Identify and evaluate the effectiveness of the proposed intervention; how does it work and who is responsible for their implementation.

Improving the psychological well-being of a workforce brings benefits for both the individual employees and the organisation as a whole.

The intervention discussed in your essay should convey the core message that psychological well-being can make a difference to work, individuals’ working lives and the success of organisations. The wellbeing intervention you will propose can be of two main kinds: 1) focused on treatment (i.e. interventions implemented once a health and wellbeing issue has been identified); or 2) focused on prevention (i.e. interventions introduced to prevent the likelihood of reduced wellbeing occurring
