How to be Happy by Using the Science of Happiness

 

Happiness is something we talk about all the time, but how often do we pursue it with intention and purpose?

Even if you are actively trying to be happy, are you doing it the right way? Do you have the knowledge and skills to achieve happiness?

It sounds strange to think of happiness as a skill, but research shows it can be broken down into steps you can learn and control.

We're often focused on accumulating more material belongings to make us happy - money, house, car and the latest technology and toys...

...but our circumstances only account for about 10% for our happiness.

So what should you be focused on?

The team at Happify are psychologists, researchers and experts in the science of happiness, so it made sense to collaborate with them on a video about being happy.

I hope you find it valuable :)
