I have been working on some research on happiness this week, in preparation for my conversation with SONYA PHILIP. If you know Sonya, then you know how brilliantly creative she is and how it seems so fitting to be discussing HAPPINESS with her. I cannot wait to share our conversation in the coming weeks.
There is a lot to be found on happiness, and a lot of it is super pretty. And pretty can be useful, but is generally only gently effective. If you want to get down with the sexy hard science of HAPPY, look no further than the GREATER GOOD SCIENCE CENTER at CAL BERKELEY.
The GGSC takes a research approach to discovering what makes us happy, content, mindful, empathic, and all the good things. Not only do they offer research based tips, but they also teach others how to create environments at home, in the classroom and at work that cultivate happiness. To put it simply, GGSC kicks ass!
They offer a monthly calendar with daily tips for cultivating happiness. While at first glance they may seem like pretty little suggestions, each one is backed by years of research into what supports the growth of happy.
I encourage you to give it a try and see what you think. I'll be working through it for the month of September. What do you say we take it on together? Click the button below to get started.
