Introduction

“Happiness is finding why you are here”

‘Peacefull’

Happiness is a decision. Do you believe that?

According to Andrew Mathews in his book ‘Being Happy’ ….“It is not what happens to us in life that determines our happiness so much as the way we react to what happens”.

Happiness is essential for wellbeing, cooperation, innovation and fostering positive environments which all contribute to a fulfilling life. Happy people are less likely to get sick, are more resilient to stress and are keen to contribute proactively.

Happiness is a topic least talked about, yet it is critical for wellbeing. The workshop Happiness 4 Life is designed to inspire people to take responsibility for their happiness and learn ways to look at life positively.
