About This Event

Participants will learn evidence-based strategies to fulfillment and happiness. In this presentation, participants will learn why it can be challenging to manage mood. There are evolutionary and social challenges to being happy, and you will learn how to rewire the mind to positive mood. In this presentation, you will learn the habits of happy people, including relationship management, state management, and engaging in life in meaningful ways.

Health also has an impact on both mood and experiences of wellbeing. In this training, you will learn health habits of happiness. We will discuss nutrition, mindfulness, meditation, sleep, and exercise as ways to increase energy and positive mood states. Simple health habits can optimize feelings of wellbeing and are essential for fulfillment.
