A Happier You® is a seven-week, fully virtual, group wellness program that teaches participants evidence-based skills to increase positive thoughts, feelings, and actions in their lives.
Rooted in positive psychology, it introduces ways to integrate personal strengths, accomplishments, gratitude, kindness, love, positivity catching, and meaning into daily routines. We consider these the 7 Core Positivity Skill Areas.
Participants also learn how to use mindfulness to increase the effect of good events in their lives, and to more fully appreciate their unique strengths. Over seven weeks, they are introduced to a variety of exercises that guide them in applying the “spotlight” of their attention to strengthen their joy and meaning in everyday living.
Each of the seven weekly hour-long sessions allows group members to participate as much or as little as they like, through audio, video, and chat. They also receive access to our exclusive mobile app, an invitation to our 2000+ member global online community, and our monthly “best self” Up Side newsletter.
