The American Happiness Association, a 501(c)3 charitable nonprofit, has a big name and a bold mission: to significantly increase the level of enduring happiness worldwide. It provides science-based education and resources to help people learn and practice sustainable happiness.
The next teleseminar is "How to Love Mondays in a Job You Hate" on Sept. 22, 2009. The next outreach meeting on Oct. 6, 2009 will help the unemployed boost their resilience to setbacks. Find out more at http://www.AmericanHappiness.org.
"There's actually a science of happiness now. This is different from traditional self-help. You can learn happiness just like you can learn math," says Dr. Aymee Coget, CEO of the organization. With one in six Americans susceptible to depression in their lifetime, happiness interventions may offer some preventive measures.
One of Harvard University's most popular classes is its happiness class. Time magazine wrote the first cover piece on the science of happiness in January 2005, and the University of Pennsylvania now has an entire degree in happiness that students are flocking to.
There are so many myths about happiness that permeate our society. These must be dispelled because they cause many individuals to suffer unnecessarily. The American Happiness Association, or AHA, as we affectionately call it, is dedicated to disseminating high-quality research about happiness that can transform individuals' lives.
"Happiness is one of the most sought-after, and yet misunderstood, experiences in the world. Millions of people haven't figured out how to be truly, deeply happy," says Bob Nozik, MD and VP of Senior Programs, and one of the few rare people who has figured it out.
"AHA translates discoveries from half a dozen fields of science into daily happiness actions and tools that everyone can practice. A lot of this information has just been stuck in the science labs until now," says Sandi Smith, COO.
The organization offers three levels of membership for anyone who is curious about what they can do to increase their happiness. The outreach division helps seniors, juveniles at risk, the unemployed, and others. Find out more at http://www.AmericanHappiness.org.
