The concept of ‘happiness’ is (hopefully) of interest to all, but this course examines some of the science that underpins it. The course begins with a discussion of the biological factors and psychology that jointly contribute to the feeling of happiness, contentment and a general sense of physical and emotional well-being. The course also addresses common misconceptions about happiness and how they affect our perspectives. Course sessions are enriched by practical demonstrations of exercises designed to help develop productive routines and increase levels of happiness overall.
