Being happy is much more than simply wearing a smile on your face. It’s about having a positive outlook on your present and future life, getting a buzz from engaging in healthy habits, living life optimistically and purposefully, enjoying meaningful relationships, feeling satisfied that you’re contributing to society through work or other activities, being productive, and taking more chances. With this course, expect to be your own agent of change, actively pursuing a happier life. You’ll be encouraged to discover new or revisit past activities that you find enjoyable. You’ll be asked to live more authentically and set your own life goals rather than trying to keep up with the Joneses. You’ll learn about how gratitude can raise your spirits. You’ll read how humour and laughter are great mood lifters and how to bring more of this into your life.
