    Happiness Advantage

    Mon, 6 Jun 2016; 1700-2000
    Marine and Family Programs, Bldg 6E

    The Happiness Advantage, developed in the psychology department of Harvard University, challenges the old idea that “success fuels happiness.” Using evidence-based studies, the course explains how we can reprogram our brains to become more positive in order to gain a competitive edge at work or to be more productive at home. When we are positive, our brains become more engaged, creative, motivated, energetic, resilient, and productive (and life is just more fun too!).
