Components of happiness and well-being are dependent on each individual culture. For instance, in one culture, feeling connected to nature may bring happiness while in another culture experiencing happiness may be linked to receiving an award or praise from others.
For this Discussion, you will read several resources describing how happiness may vary by cultural context and even how words and terms for happiness may not be universal and thus may not appear in every culture. As you consider these Learning Resources, think about the influence or term for happiness and whether it appears in every culture.
- Review this week’s Learning Resources and select an influence for happiness or a term for happiness that does not appear in every culture.
By Day 4
Post and explain the influence or term for happiness you selected and explain why you think it does not appear every culture.
Note: Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the Learning Resources and identify current relevant literature to support your work.
