Overview

While many of us may believe that happiness is an attitude or a feeling of contentment at a particular moment, the pursuit of happiness is a journey, not a destination. Many of us equate events of happiness to outcomes like getting good grades, getting a high paying job, or having a life status such as being married or in a relationship, as the key to gratification. Though these things in life are important, they won't make you as happy as you think. Typically, when our plan for fulfillment does not go our way, we experience a drop in happiness, and we try to rationalize and justify the reason why.

Delivered by the recognized expertise of Yale University professor Dr. Laurie Santos, in The Science of Well-Being, we're guided by behavioral science's best practices that incorporate validated assessments to measure changes in happiness. Teaching grounded research aimed at building productive habits and increasing happiness, Santos helps us to become more self-aware about our baseline of happiness and learn how to increase our overall well-being.

"Even if you get the perfect grade, true love, and all that stuff, why aren't these things making us happy? Sometimes seeing our own thought patterns aren't as easy as we think."
