The Science of Happiness is presented as the first MOOC to teach positive psychology. An opportunity to learn science-based principles and practices for a happy, meaningful life.
The most important finding, according to me, is that our happiness depends by 40% on our activities, and not on our genes or circumstances. So we can learn things that will change our day-to-day life, improve our relationships, and our health.
I want to thank the course instructors, Dacher Keltner and Emiliana Simon-Thomas for all the learnings that I put into practice, and that I try to transmit to others.
You can see them introducing the course in the video below.
I recommend this great course. If you are interested, a new “self-paced” session starts on December 1st: The Science of Happiness.
This course is proposed by the Greater Good Science Center of University of California, Berkeley.
