CRAFTING YOUR HAPPINESS WORKSHOP

Happiness is your birthright.

“Too many people measure how successful they are by how much money they make or the people that they associate with. In my opinion, true success should be measured by how happy you are.” – Richard Branson

You have the right to be happy. Regardless of age, race, gender, education background or socio-economic circumstances, you have the right – no you deserve – to be happy in your life. Sadly, few of us know-how to achieve happiness. We all want to be happy, and often think that if we’re successful, have achieved financial freedom, have the ideal job, a child, the perfect weight, or a supportive partner, we’ll be happy, but that is seldom the case. People can be happy while being poor, ill, and undergoing hardship. It’s easy to confuse success with happiness, and many people strive for professional goals (money or job titles), only to achieve them and realise that it doesn’t provide the sense of happiness they were hoping for. Happiness isn’t only for the privileged few; rather it’s for everybody. That everybody includes you!

Research has repeatedly shown that happiness drives success. So, we need to strive towards gaining happiness first because:

Supports us

in making better decisions

Makes us

more creative and resilient

Helps us

us to cope with life

Crafting Your Happiness is an interactive, online workshop that stimulate your thoughts, and offers you easy-to-apply tools which shift unhelpful thinking patterns, actions, and beliefs. The workshop runs for two hours every week for ten weeks, and is based on the principles of Positive Psychology – the evidence-based science of human happiness.

The benefits of Crafting Your Happiness

Aristotle once said Happiness is the meaning and purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence.

He may have been a bit philosophical about happiness, but science has proven over the last few years that being happier impacts your physical, mental, emotional, and social well-being.

Think of developing your happiness as an overall well-being exercise programme. At first it will feel odd to get started, and you’ll need plenty of patience, practice, discipline, and self-love, but it will get easier with time, and you will feel much better. Integrating the regular practices into your day will allow you to cope better with life, experience more positive emotions than negative ones, and you’ll bounce back from adversity much quicker.

This is how happiness can impact your personal and professional life:

Why Crafting Your Happiness is for you

A staggering 62% of people are languishing, living in their comfort zone, and not achieving their full potential!

While languishing is not necessarily bad, it does limit your potential for greatness. In life, we’re taught many skills and acquire diverse competencies, but we’re not taught how to be happy. We don’t know what being at our best looks or feels like, and often we’re scared or feel guilty about being happy. Some people think it’s an unrealistic dream, and that they don’t have the right to be happy with all the misery around. Well, it’s not! Working on your happiness is hard work, and certainly not a spectator sport. You’ll have to actively practice the tools and be patient with yourself. Life varies every day, which means that your happiness will fluctuate, but when you have the tools from the Crafting Your Happiness workshop, you will have lifelong skills that will allow you to live a balanced and happy life.
