Evidence based research has discovered many benefits for living a happy life. Being more successful, living longer, and having stronger support networks are just three reasons. The advantages are clear, yet more young people than ever are dealing with mental health issues like depression, and anxiety.
Children learn by observing the adults in their lives. Are you showing them how to live a robustly happy life? Happiness skills can be taught by changing school and family philosophies; you don’t need to add more curriculum to your already busy days. Think of the change you could make in the world, if you demonstrated positive ways to deal with difficulties, and included discussions about the way humans are hardwired to feel.
Discover the eight precepts, or principles for action. Each one is based on scientific research, and is designed to increase your knowledge and understanding of human emotions, as well as give you happiness boosting strategies. Too often you don’t know what makes you happy, or how to regain positive feelings once they have disappeared.
By modelling these principles, you can help increase the happiness of the world, one child, one classroom, one family at a time.
