How to Be Happier


Dr. Tal Ben-shahar




In "How to Be Happier" with Dr. Tal Ben-Shahar, the concept of happiness is explored through a unique analogy called the hamburger model. This model illustrates different attitudes and behaviors regarding pleasure, future consequences, and overall well-being, shedding light on how our choices impact our present and future states of happiness.


I spent a significant portion of my teenage years playing squash, hitting the ball up and down the walls, running around the court and in the gym, competing in tournaments around the world. I was 18 years old when one of the most important squash events of the year was. I had been training extremely hard and decided to supplement my training with a special diet.

However, in the four weeks leading up to the tournaments I ate only the leanest fish and chicken, whole grain, carbohydrates, and fresh fruit and vegetables.
