Happiness 101

A workshop about the science of happiness. Learn lifelong skills that contribute to a more joy-filled life.

About the Workshop:
Happiness 101 is a workshop for people who want to achieve greater levels of happiness and overall well-being, no matter what their starting point. Based on the research findings from Positive Psychology (the scientific study of optimal human functioning), participants will learn scientifically proven interventions that lead to lasting and sustainable happiness.

Benefits of happiness include:

• Better sleep
• Less pain & less stress

You will learn:
• The 5 Pillars of Psychological Well-being and Happiness
• The 10 Characteristics of Authentically Happy People – and
what we can do to foster these characteristics in ourselves
• How to identify and use our ‘Signature Strengths’ to increase well-being
• Scientifically proven interventions and habits that lead to increased happiness, resilience, fulfillment and well-being
