The Forgotten Road to Happiness
If there is one thing most of us agree to is that happiness is a good thing to pursue and possess. Google “How to be happy”, and you will find topics like “23 Ways to Be Happier”; “10 Scientifically Proven Ways to Be Incredibly Happy”; 10 Keys to Happier Living”; “20 Ways To Be Happier Today”; “5 Simple Ways to Be Happy”; “15 habits of incredibly happy people”; “23 Psychology-Backed Ways to Find Your Happiness”… and the list goes on and on.
But there is a set of studies that verifies the simple truth – The road to happiness is paved with kindness. That is the forgotten road to happiness. The evidence is conclusive: there is a positive feedback loop between kindness and happiness.
Dr Wan will show us how easy it is to find ways to get on to this forgotten road to find sustainable happiness that wells up from within us.
