Newsletter 7: Ten keys to Happier Living

04 Mar 2011 | Mark Williamson

We've got some exciting things to tell you about this month, including our upcoming launch and Headspace tickets. But first of all...

Ten Keys to Happier Living

In recent years lots of new scientific evidence has emerged about the things that make life happy and fulfilling. Yet very little of this knowledge is communicated in a way that's useful in our daily lives.

We've undertaken a review of the latest evidence and distilled the findings into ten simple themes. Before making these more widely available, we wanted to share them with our members and get your reactions.

To find out more and give your views, see 10 Keys to Happier Living.

Action for Happiness launch

Thanks so much to the hundreds of you that gave feedback on our launch plans - it's been great to have so much support and so many good ideas.

Our launch event is now confirmed for the afternoon of Tuesday 12 April  in London. More details to follow shortly but please save the date.

Free Headspace tickets

Our generous friends at Headspace have once again offered us 20 free tickets for their next mindfulness event on Sat 26 March. To find out more and apply for your place see Headspace Event.

'Teaching Happiness' course

We had a tremendous response to the offer of scholarships for theTeaching Happiness course, with over 180 applying. We're grateful to ICEP Europe who increased their offer of free places from 4 to 15.

Happiness in the news

To join the debate and discussion on these articles and many more, please follow us on Facebook or Twitter.
 
Spread the word
 
Over 4,000 of us have now joined as members of Action for Happiness, which is fantastic. But we want our message about a more positive, caring and fulfilling way of life to reach as many people as possible.
 
So it would be wonderful if you could take a moment right now to tell your friends and colleagues about Action for Happiness.

And finally…

I'll leave you with these two wonderful, inspiring videos:


"We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give" - Winston Churchill

As always we'd love to hear from you at info@actionforhappiness.org
