Overview[edit] Happiness seems to be more like a thermostat, since our temperaments tend to bring us back towards a certain happiness level (a tendency influenced by carefully chosen activities and habits). Hedonic adaptation is a process or mechanism that reduces the affective impact of emotional events. Hedonic adaptation can occur in a variety of ways. Major theoretical approaches[edit] Behavioral/psychological approach[edit] Major empirical findings[edit] Wildeman, Turney, Schnittker (2014) studied the effects of imprisonment on one’s baseline level of well-being.

Starting Over In his famous , Richard Feynman presented this interesting speculation: Fascinated by Feynman’s question, Seed put a similar one to a number of leading thinkers: “Imagine—much as Feynman asked his audience—that in a mission to change everyone’s thinking about the world, you can take only one lesson from your field as a guide. In a single statement, what would it be?” Here are their answers:

About: The Zeitgeist Movement Defined is the official, representative text of the global, non-profit sustainability advocacy organization known as The Zeitgeist Movement (TZM).

Warmer klimaat, koudere winters Zowel Europa als het oostelijke deel van de Verenigde Staten hebben er enkele strenge winters opzitten. En volgens experts wordt het ook deze winter bibberen. Boosdoener is vreemd genoeg de opwarming van de aarde. De afgelopen drie winters werden Noord-Amerika en grote delen van Europa geteisterd door hevige sneeuwstormen. In januari 2011 viel het openbare leven in New York en Philadelphia zo goed als stil door ongezien winterweer. Een jaar later bleef de wintertemperatuur in Alaska tien graden onder het gemiddelde. België en Nederland kregen het minder hard te verduren, maar ook onze drie voorbije winters waren eerder koud ten opzichte van de voorbije decennia. Volgens de Amerikaanse klimatoloog Charles Greene van Cornell University staan ons de komende jaren meer koude en extreme winters te wachten: ‘Dat klinkt nogal vreemd in het warmste decennium sinds de metingen 160 jaar geleden begonnen’, schrijft hij in het Amerikaanse blad Scientific American.
