Happiness as Medicine Workshop: Live a life full of Gratitude, Purpose, & Meaning
May 4th 2017 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM
We all want to be happy, but with our hectic schedules, most of us don’t know where to start. At FRESH Med, we believe so much in the importance of happiness, we prescribe it as one of our five pillars of wellbeing. Happiness means something different to everyone: Some may find it in travel, eating with family, watching a ball game, practicing yoga—and the list goes on and on….
Positive Psychology is the scientific research of what makes individuals and communities thrive! Just because you’re not depressed, doesn’t mean you’re happy. Most people are “Blah.” Positive Psychology gives you the research and tools to take you “north of neutral” so you’re not just surviving, but thriving!
Happiness, not to be confused with “happy-ology,” can transform people’s lives by empowering and inspiring them to live from a place of gratitude, authenticity, and joy. Owning our happiness can motivate us to pursue our goals and inspire us to make changes in our lives. The pursuit of happiness is both your honor and your right!
At FRESH Med, we're constantly thinking about what it means to be happy and how we can enable our clients to find greater happiness in their everyday lives. So, we want to know: What makes you happy? How do you cultivate joy and contentment in your own life? How do you find and define happiness? The good news is: You can increase your own happiness!
In the workshop, Dr. Robert and Julie Graham will:
Introduce the field of Positive Psychology
Review the scientific research behind happiness
Introduce the “ABC’s” of Positive Psychology to give participants exercises, techniques, and activities designed to maximize happiness on a daily basis.
Our “Happiness as Medicine” workshop is packed with research, tips, tools and actions that are easily tailored to individual personalities and preferences. Participants will walk away from the workshop feeling happier and more “Positively Psyched” about their future!
