Finding My HYGGE – Infinite Ways to Live Well
Searching for the Best Things in Life 尋找生命中最好的……
Life is a process of searching for and pursuing our goals in different life stages and, ultimately, for the meaning of life itself. We construct our own personal values and priorities based on what we are told or what we have proactively learned. So how we can live well? Does living well equal pursuing happiness? Psychologist and psychiatrist Carl Jung said, “Man cannot stand a meaningless life”. So, how can we define the meaning of our life? In this series, professors are invited to share their views on the best things in life, and you are invited to share your stories with them during the final session.
