project happiness

Happiness is not having what u have, it is appreciating what u have

Why project happiness?

The World Health Organization has named depression as the greatest cause of suffering worldwide. 1 out of 5 deals with depression or anxiety. For youth, that number increases to 1 in 3.

Th fact is that 40% of our happiness can be influenced by intentional thoughts and actions, leading to life changing habits. It’s this 40% that Project Happiness Programs help to impact.

What creates happiness?

The course is aimed at anyone who wants to create websites on their own, and possibly work as a freelancer or employee in the field of web design and development. We cover everything, so even if you've never seen HTML code in your life, you'll be able to quickly jump in.

Why is Social Emotional Learning (SEL) important?

SEL is a process for helping our youth develop the fundamental skills for life-effectiveness. Socially and emotionally competent children are skilled in five core areas: they are self-aware and socially aware, are able to regulate emotions, have good relationship skills, demonstrate responsible decision-making throughout all areas of life, and can set and monitor progress towards goals

Science Happiness

Scientific research has turned its focus on how happiness can be sustained and even increased. Research has confirmed that through intentional practices, we can actually change the neural pathways of our brain to become happier. In fact, only 10% of our happiness is due to our external circumstances and a full 90% is based on our inner environment!

Mindful Monday
Mindfulness, the ancient practice of focusing non-judgmental awareness on the present moment and thoughts, is increasingly recognized in today’s scientific community as an effective way to reduce stress, increase self-awareness, enhance emotional intelligence, and effectively manage painful thoughts and feelings.
Grati-Tuesday
Research has found that gratitude can significantly increase your happiness, and protect you from stress, negativity, anxiety, and depression. Developing a regular gratitude practice is one of the easiest ways to counter the brain’s negativity bias, or the tendency to cling to the negative things in our environment. By intentionally focusing on the good parts of your day, the positivity grows.
Wellness Wednesday
Happiness is good for your health, and vice versa. A review of hundreds of studies shows compelling evidence that happier people have better overall health, and live longer than their less happy peers. Anxiety, depression, pessimism, and a lack of enjoyment in daily activities have all been found to be associated with higher rates of disease and shorter lifespans.
Thoughtful Thursday
Happiness and altruism are intimately linked – doing good is an essential ingredient to being happy, and happiness helps spark kindness and generosity. Science suggests that how we spend our time and resources is as important, if not more important, than the amount of money we make. Giving to others releases endorphins, activating the parts of our brains that are associated with trust, pleasure, and social connection. Being altruistic and spending money on others leads to higher levels of happiness than spending it on oneself.
Freedom Friday
To be clear, vulnerability does not mean being weak or submissive. To the contrary, it implies the courage to be your authentic self. The rewards of vulnerability are immeasurable. When you embrace an authentic and vulnerable stance to life, people will meet you there in that openness, allowing you to experience true connection. Forgiveness is a byproduct of living authentically and vulnerably. Forgiveness doesn’t mean tolerance of error but rather a patient encouragement of growth. Practicing forgiveness doesn’t only benefit the person you forgive; research shows that it has tangible benefits for yourself as well. So the next time you’re holding a grudge, try letting it go – for your own happiness!
Social Saturday
Our busy lives often leave us stretched for time to connect with others, but science suggests that social connection should be at the top of our to-do lists. Relatedly, happiness is collective. Our happiness depends on the happiness of those we are connected to. Science shows that through practicing happiness, we make those we come into contact with happier.
Soul Sunday
Researchees have found that the type of work you do is key: engaging in meaningful activity is a big indicator of happiness. As Harvard happiness expert Tal Ben-Shahar says, “Happiness lies at the intersection of pleasure and meaning.” In addition to seeking work imbued with a sense of purpose, scientists have discovered that people thrive in environments where their strengths are emphasized. If we are actively involved in trying to reach a goal, or an activity that is challenging but well suited to our skills, we experience a joyful state or what famous psychologist Dr. Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi calls “flow.”
