The Hedonic Treadmill | Sophia Guan | TEDxGleneagleSecondary

Do you ever feel like you’ll never be happy? In this talk, Sophia discusses the concept of the hedonic treadmill, an idea that suggests we are protected from being comfortable in a harmful environment. Join us on a journey through misconceptions about what happiness really means! Sophia Guan is a 2nd-year UBC student majoring in Psychology, a Peer Facilitator for the UBC Student Recovery Community, and a Student Advisor for UBC Arts Co-op. She hopes to pursue a path that involves uplifting her community, such as counselling. In her spare time, she loves to create art, hike, listen to psychology podcasts, and cuddle her dog, Sparky. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
