Project Happiness is back!

Join the worldwide experience on April 6 or go at your own pace!

Project Happiness is a 4-week online experience to help boost positive feelings and promote happiness and well-being with scientifically proven techniques taken from the fields of positive psychology and mindfulness. Each of the four weeks is based on a theme that directly contributes to the science of happiness: Gratitude, Self-Care, Presence, and Social Connections. Project Happiness was designed with busy lives in mind, and includes brief yet effective tools combined with inspirational sources delivered to you daily. Participants will have the options of measuring changes throughout their journey with brief self assessments to increase motivation, and to join our private online community in Facebook to connect to other like-minded individuals and increase support!
