This is a seminar on the science of wellbeing and happiness. Over many decades, science has made a wonderful contribution in helping us understand negative emotion. The emphasis on deficits, disorders and disease has allowed for effective interventions to be developed in order to help and support people who are unwell or unhappy.
But why wait until we are unwell to learn about becoming healthier? Why wait until we are unhappy to explore happiness? In recent years psychologists have started to examine positive emotion. This research has focused on what makes people happier, what gives them more meaning and purpose in life and what measures they can take to lead to overall greater health.
This seminar will outline ten simple, practical and more importantly evidence-based strategies linked to a better quality of life. The hope is that it will uplift and inspire change in the lives of those who attend but even more importantly inspire participants to incorporate it into their homes, workplaces and communities.
