About This Class

50% of our happiness level is determined by our genetics, 10% by circumstance, and 40% by intentional activity*.

This course focuses on the 40%, the intentional activities, and shows students how to “do happiness”.  We will demonstrate that you are able to take back control, and influence how you feel on a daily basis.  This course highlights the bio-chemical, social, and psychological strategies that you can take advantage of to optimise your levels of happiness.  Happiness is a feeling, an attitude, and a way of experiencing life.

This journey is partly a choice, and is, most definitely, a practice.  Feeling happy doesn’t just magically arrive without action, so it is crucial to understand the environments, social conditions, and physical places we must put ourselves to feel it.  We’ve put this course together in a way where you can pick and choose what works for you, and we encourage you to trust the process of trying new things.  The benefit of taking this course is that you will understand the components of happiness, and feel better as a result.

This series is split into four classes, and you are currently on Part 1:

Part 1 - Self Care

Part 2 - Relationships

Part 3 - Pursuits

Part 4 - Perspectives

To Your Happiness!
