About This Course

It’s no secret that happier people reap a ton of benefits in life. They are more likely to graduate college, have more successful careers, have a more fulfilling social life, feel more confident, are more creative, are physically healthier, and even have stronger immune systems.

Because happiness and a sense of well-being are so crucial to a satisfying life, psychologists have been studying these questions to find simple tricks that can increase happiness and well-being.

Course Overview

There’s a lot to learn about the science of happiness, but I’ve tried to condense it down to the essentials. Everything in this course is based on actual psychology research, published in peer-reviewed journals. There’s no fluff and no made-up junk science.

The course begins with an overview of what it means to be happy and why it’s worth seeking happiness. I’ll also dispel some myths about the importance of happiness and the role of money in life satisfaction.
Then we’ll go into the everyday tricks you can start using immediately. These are organized into broad themes that highlight the key determinants of happiness and well-being. Within each theme, though, is a collection of specific life hacks that come from real research in the science of happiness.

Using Positive Psychology and the Science of Happiness to its Full Potential
Everything in this course is rooted in tested life strategies. I’m not just making things up like a lot of self-help “gurus.” You’ll learn practical tips taken from rigorous research in psychological science, and you’ll discover when those strategies will be most effective.

A few of the things we’ll cover:

  • The surprising link between wealth and happiness.
  • The secret reason why materialism actually undermines well-being.
  • How a simple two-minute exercise can create lasting changes in your happiness.
  • How to pursue relationships that will give you the most fulfilling life possible.
  • How you can change your life by spending money on the right things (and stop spending it on the wrong things…which you almost definitely are).
  • …and way more!

    This course was informative and based on research as opposed to speculations or opinions. It is nice to know what things you can do in day-to-day life to improve your sense of happiness. Nothing profound but simple awareness of what works and what doesn’t. Smile more, strike up a conversation, be grateful, be mindful, volunteer, and treat others to kindness and thoughtful gifts. You will be happier!
