Happy Sessions

Happy students are *successful* students.

We often think that success will bring happiness, but it actually works the other way around. Research on happiness and success shows us that the better you take care of yourself and set yourself up for real-life, lasting happiness, the better you do in all areas of your life. This means that feeling happy contributes to better health, better sleep, better mood, and better performance!

Introducing...the Happy Sessions.

Happy Sessions is a 4-session workshop and conversation series about increasing happiness and building self-confidence. It's good for your mood and your education.  The Happy Sessions will cover topics like the science of happiness, gratitude and optimism, identifying your unique strengths, and practicing self-compassion.

Session Overview:

  • Happy Session 1: How Happiness Happens. Discover the science behind happier living.
  • Happy Session 2: The Gratitude Attitude. Discover the attitude that can boost your mood (and your grades).
  • Happy Session 3: Power Up! Discover how to harness your unique strengths to feel good and have success on your own terms.
  • Happy Session 4: BYOBFF (Be Your Own BFF). Learn how to love yourself and watch your life transform.
