The Science of Well-Being and Happiness: How to Become a Happier Person

You’ve heard it all before—the list that’s supposed to make you happy: a good job, money, new stuff, a nice appearance, on and on. But not so fast. Now social scientists are casting serious doubt on whether any of that really yields happiness or well-being. So, what does? Are there actual, practical steps we can take to feel better and live more fulfilling lives? Turns out, there’s a science behind feeling better. It’s aptly named the science of well-being and happiness, and it lets you examine all those misconceptions about happiness so that you can start focusing on what really does lead to more contentment. Join board-certified executive and life coach James Larcus as he takes you on an interactive and practical journey through your own internal landscape to help you improve your personal and professional life. Identify “mind mishaps,” the brain’s natural features that often hinder your health and well-being. Then find out how to recognize the fallacy that drives your misconceptions so that you can begin discovering and applying research-based interventions to become more resilient in the face of life’s many changes and challenges. Finally, outline strategies and goals tailored specifically to you and your life to boost your health and wellness. Now that can put a smile on your face!
