Legends and Truths - The Science behind Happiness

09 September
Online

It seems we are all striving towards happiness; yet, why do we remain unhappy? What does it have to do with our brains, perceptions and how we behave? Is it innate for us to be happy or is it something that we need to create? In this session with our guest speaker - Dr. Louise Lambert - we will uncover the truth from a scientific perspective on happiness and demystify common beliefs about what it is and what it is not.

Many people mistakenly believe happiness comes after we land a better job, find a more attractive partner or have a higher salary. Through several studies conducted in positive psychology we can learn more about what really contributes to a better life - and it might not be what you think it is! Join us to learn more...
