Becoming Happier: Easy as Pie?
Miriam Liss

Our happiness can be thought of as a pie. The biggest slice is determined by genetics. It is not dependent on circumstances as most people think, and changing those circumstances doesn’t help achieve happiness. Miriam Liss, author of Balancing the Big Stuff: Finding Happiness in Work, Family and Life, will discuss the “hedonic treadmill” and intentional activities shown to improve happiness.
