Staying optimistic is important, and not just in these trying times. Luckily, you can now increase your happiness thanks to this free online course.
While we remain shocked by the magnitude of the current coronavirus pandemic – and rightfully so – our civilization has so far turned a blind eye to the fact that mental diseases have been spreading uncontrollably in the last few decades.
To increase awareness of the importance of happiness in our everyday lives and teach people how to stay positive, Professor Laurie Santos from Yale University created a course called The Science of Well-Being. The program became instantly popular in 2018 when it was launched and has just been released to the public for free.
“Professor Santos reveals misconceptions about happiness, annoying features of the mind that lead us to think the way we do, and the research that can help us change,” says the curriculum.

According to Santos, the goal of the course is to prepare you to successfully incorporate a specific wellness activity into your life.
