"t's been nicknamed "The Happiness Class", and unlike most units of study you would encounter at a university, it's all about arming students with the skills to lead a happy and fulfilled life. The final assessment is not an exam, but a personal self-improvement project." - Sydney Morning Herald - (https://www.smh.com.au/world/north-america/yale-has-made-its...)
“The Science of Well-Being” taught by Professor Laurie Santos overviews what psychological science says about happiness. The purpose of the course is to not only learn what psychological research says about what makes us happy but also to put those strategies into practice. The first part of the course reveals misconceptions we have about happiness and the annoying features of the mind that lead us to think the way we do. The next part of the course focuses on activities that have been proven to increase happiness along with strategies to build better habits. The last part of the course gives learners time, tips, and social support to work on the final assignment which asks learners to apply one wellness activity aka "Rewirement" into their lives for four weeks."
This has been uploaded on OB a year ago but didn't get much attention. I completed this a year ago and have since been implementing some of these practices within my daily life and have found my well-being to significantly improve. I've been sharing this with fellow colleagues in the human service industry and have had positive feedback. For something that has zero cost, I'm sure there will be a few OB members that will appreciate this.
All the best
