The Neuroscience of Happiness Online Course The Neuroscience of Happiness Online CourseDavid Miller
Understanding your brain to live a happier life.
Living a happier life is possible for us all if we understand our brains and the big and small things we can do to contribute to our own happiness and support the happiness of others. This online course provides an introduction to the neuroscience of happiness, brain basics, how to manage emotions and drive and sustain positive emotions, practical strategies for increased happiness at home and at work, and shares the latest insights from neuroscience research that can help us live happier lives!
Across five live 90-minute online sessions presented by Sue Langley, you will master the brain basics, learn the how and why of neuroplasticity (our ability to change and shape our brains), discover big and small intentional activities we can use to be happier, and how we can contribute to the happiness of others.
