Y​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​our assignment should be between 1,400 and 1,600 words long in total. If you use lots of images, data charts and hyperlinks your word count can be a bit lower (200-300 words lower).
Choose TWO of the following strategies for increasing happiness that we have discussed in class: Mindfulness, Diet, Forgiveness, Co-operation, Resilience. Explore the theory behind WHY your choices are believed to increase happiness and write up a personal plan showing how you will attempt to use these strategies to achieve your happiness goals in your own life. This part of the answer should take the form of a multimodal document that uses images, hyperlinks and colour as well as text to convey information.
2b) To what extent is happiness a personal choice, and to what extent is it a result of the ways in which social, economic and political factors that are largely beyond our control shape our lives? Your answer should include reflections on EITHER Sara Ahmed’s analysis of melancholic migrants OR William Davies’s warning in ‘The Happiness Industry’ t​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​hat the surveillance techniques embodied in our “mood-tracking technologies, sentiment analysis algorithms and stress-busting techniques” are being “put to work in the service of certain political and economic interests” and happiness could then function as a form of social control. You can write up your reflections either as a straightforward piece of reflective writing (using text alone) or in the form of a multimodal document like 2a. Your answers should include frequent references to at least TWO relevant academic sources and papers that we have discussed in class and that are posted for you on mycourses.
