Happiness lessons from teaching happiness (part 2)

Happiness lessons from teaching happiness (part 2)

Yesterday I posted a few thoughts reflecting my experiences teaching positive psychology and the happiness lessons I learned talking about happiness!

Today, Day 2 of the 3 day course, I learned (or was reminded of) a few more important lessons…

  • seek first to understand, then to be understood

  • change what you can change, accept what you can't, and be wise enough to know the difference

  • re-learn the art of doing nothing

  • savour life

  • protect yourself (and others) from risk, but work also to create success and happiness

  • you are not your thoughts

  • your thoughts are not necessarily facts

I'm happy to report that (as far as I can tell) the participants in my course are enjoying themselves and learning. I can't help but wonder what more I'll learn about happiness tomorrow…
