Four Week Happiness Habits Workshop
The Four Week Happiness Habits Workshop consists of:
Focusing on the Positive
We live in a deficit oriented society, that is, a society that values the negative more than the positive. Learning to re-focus on what is positive, what is working, and what makes us feel good allows us to think more creatively and to cultivate a sense of inner well-being. You will learn skills that will help you increase focus on the positive.
Practicing Savoring and Gratitude
Most of us are aware of the importance of attending to and appreciating the good in our lives. Research shows that practicing savoring and gratitude considerably increases personal well-being. We will discuss the latest studies on savoring and gratitude, and you will learn tools that will enable you to express more gratitude and increase savoring.
Research tells us that social support is key to well-being. We tend to have an easy time empathizing with and encouraging others during bad times. But fostering relationships during good times is just as important. You will learn tools that will enable you to enhance your social support by responding effectively when good things happen to others.
Most people are kinder to others than they are to themselves. Most people believe that they are letting themselves off the hook to easily if they don't beat themselves up after a mistake. Being kind to yourself isn't a luxury, it increases your well-being. You will learn how to be more self-compassionate.
