Happiness 101: An Introduction

23 Mar 2019, Sat
Happiness Initiative

What exactly is Happiness? Is it an elusive idea, or is it something that you can choose to experience?

Join us in this two hour experience where we will share a short introduction of the science and research behind happiness.

What we will cover:
1. Why is Happiness always short-lived?
2. Misconceptions about Happiness
3. Choices we can make to be happier

The Facilitator
Simon is the co-founder of Happiness Initiative. He is passionate about helping people discover the choices they can make to be happier. He holds a Master in Applied Positive Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania. 

Many years back, Simon was making headway in his climb up the corporate ladder. The higher he climbed, the more deeply unhappy he became. In his life of pursuits, he lost touched with the pursuit of life. He thought the higher he climbed, the happier he would become. Hence, he had no choice but to keep climbing. When he reached the destination, happiness was short-lived. So he thought he had to climb again.

Finally, one day, everything that mattered stopped mattering. It was the beginning of his journey to discover that happiness can be a choice. It sowed the seeds for Happiness Initiative.
