Can I really be happy?

Happiness is a journey; it is not a destination. Studies from the field of positive psychology have shown us that the range of positive emotions that we call happiness depend largely on our mindset and less so on our circumstances. We can’t prevent suffering; bad things will happen to all of us. And we may not always be able to change our external circumstances. But we can always change our mindset, and we can seed our life with more positive emotions that build happiness and strengthen our inner resources so that we have more resilience during the hard times. Yes, we really can learn to be happy.

What do I need?

You will need access to a computer and the internet, along with an email address (for registration and email updates). A printer to print out the worksheets and/or a journal and pen to complete the written exercises are also helpful.
