Happiness Community Conversations

Beginning the week of October 14, and extending for five weeks, several library branches will be hosting Happiness Community Conversations, open to the public, for youth and adults. These conversations complement the University of Arizona’s College of Social and Behavioral Sciences 2013 Downtown Lecture Series on Happiness.

Participants in the Happiness Community Conversations are encouraged to attend the UA Happiness Lecture Series, held on five Wednesdays from mid-October to mid-November at the Fox Theatre downtown, but it is not a requirement. The library conversations will include ideas from the lectures and take a creative and community leap forward, encouraging "next steps" for Tucson's residents to take as individual and community members in order to create a happier and more prosperous Tucson.

All the sessions are facilitated by professionals who work with Community Renaissance. For more information about Community Renaissance, contact Anita Fonte at 520-331-5582 or visit the website community-renaissance.com.

During the discussion this summary of the World Happiness Report may be referenced.

This week's topic: Happiness—A Feeling or a Future?

Suggested Community Conversation Questions:

  • What is your idea of a "good life?" Describe how it is the same or different from your expectation of it a decade ago.
  • As you imagine your life five years from now, how would your description of your "good life" be the same and be different?
  • What steps are you willing to take to create this future "good life?" Is there a way you can do this with others? Why or why not?

Weight Loss: Manage your weight, improve your health

Does the approach of the holidays fill you with the dread of gaining weight? You are not alone! According to Gallup research:

  • 56% of Americans want to lose weight
  • the average amount of weight Americans want to shed is 16lb
  • a third of Americans are considered obese
  • obesity is a national epidemic

The presenter, who has a medical degree, non-surgically lost 100lb. over a year’s time beginning August 20, 2011. She used no special foods, medicines or weight loss products. She did use a certain exercise routine and a certain set of rules about food consumption, which she will share with the audience. But the presenter also found that, to lose significant weight, she needed to adopt a philosophy of weight loss. She found tips that helped her to stick to her principles every day.

If you are interested in losing weight, or are supporting the weight-loss success of someone close to you, and surgery is not part of the plan, you are invited to listen as one successful dieter shares her story. A question and answer session will follow the presentation.
