Cultivating Happiness At Work

 

THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS

Happiness is often an elusive experience - people will go to great lengths for a fleeting moment of happiness. Even the U.S. Declaration of Independence, written in 1776, asserts the right to “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness”.

 

But what precisely is happiness - how can it be quantified, and is there any measurable benefit to possessing a happy mindset over that of a more stoic realist?

 

“Happiness is a mystery like religion, and should never be rationalized.” - G.K. Chesterton, English author (1874-1936)

 

Happiness is a subjective experience - what brings elation to one person will not necessarily satisfy another.

 

Psychologists often refer to happiness as positive affect - a mood or emotional state which is brought about by generally positive thoughts and feelings. Positive affect contrasts with low moods and negativity, a state of mind described as negative affect.

 

This program will help people understand happiness and what it means for them, as well as intrinsic practices as well as best practices to implement a culture of encouragement and happiness.
