About the event

On Tuesday, 01-03-23, we will be watching and discussing the following Big Think video by Tal Ben-Shahar: Don't Chase Happiness. Become antifragile.

Antifragility, otherwise known as "Resilience 2.0", is the idea that when one puts pressure or stress on a system, or human, the system or human actually grows bigger and stronger.

Antifragile systems are all around us.  One example is our muscular system.  We go to the gym and lift weights.  By doing so we are putting pressure on our system and it responds by growing stronger, thus, the human body is an antifragile system.

From a psychological perspective, antifragility comes in the form of PTG, or post-traumatic growth.  After we experience a stressful event, we learn from it and grow to become more resilient.
