Newsletter 11: Be part of something bigger

06 Sep 2011 | Action for Happiness

I hope you've had a wonderful summer whatever you've been up to.

Creating happier workplaces

When people feel good at work it brings huge positive benefits both for them and the organisations they work for. But sadly many companies don't get this right. Can we help you put happiness on the agenda in your organisation?

Getting serious about happiness

This summer saw a very encouraging UN declaration calling on countries to give more importance to happiness. It's great to see people across the world starting to recognise that although economic progress matters, improving our overall well-being is more important than growing our wealth.

Matthieu Ricard on Happiness

What is happiness, and how can we create happier lives for ourselves and others? Join us for an inspiring evening with Matthieu Ricard, one of the world's leading thinkers and experts on happiness and mind training.

Free Headspace tickets

Our generous friends at Headspace have once again offered us 20 free tickets for their next mindfulness event on Sat 10th September. To find out more and apply for your place see Headspace Event.

Meaning: Be part of something bigger

Meaning is this month's featured theme from our Ten Keys to Happier Living.  When we have  meaning and purpose in our lives we tend to be happier, feel more in control, have less anxiety and make more of a difference to others Why not try one of these actions or make up one of your own!
