Secret Society of Happy People 5 Ways to Keep Your Happy Despite Chaos
Sometimes chaos impacts the happiest of happy. We can help you keep your happy despite it.

Does chaos take away some of your happiness? You’re not alone.

The Secret Society of Happy People will host a free webinar on Saturday, May 4 at 11:00 am CST about 5 Ways to Keep Your Happy in a Chaotic World.

Chaos is part of our life and we’re not going to eliminate or avoid all chaos, but these five simple ideas can help you stay happier despite chaos:

  •     Respect Reality: Develop the ability to balance realism with optimism so you can recognize and coexist with “happiness challenges” instead of letting them bog you down!
  •     Juggle Judgments: Discover the key to maintaining the ability to discern without getting locked into self-limiting judgmental modes of thinking.
  •     Be Spontaneously Helpful: Learn how you can utilize your natural helpful nature in ways that bring the highest happiness return for yourself and others!
  •     Think Thankful: See how and why “gratitude habits” provide the key to chaos perspective.
  •     Be Part of a Silver Lining Tribe: Learn why it’s sometimes wisest to go outside your current support circle to find a group that will lift you up.

“I know from both personal and professional experience that even mostly happy people have to put effort into keeping their happy some days,” say Society Founder Pamela Gail Johnson. “This webinar will give people five easy and simple ways to do that.”

The Secret Society of Happy People is your resource for happiness boosters, inspiration and celebrations.

Purpose: The Secret Society of Happy People encourages the expression of happiness and discourages parade-raining. Parade-rainers are those people who don't want to hear your happy news. And no, we don't tell people to be happy if they aren't or how to be happy.

Recognize happiness with the same enthusiasm as I do unhappiness,
Encourage others to share their happiness,
Don’t unnecessarily rain on other people’s parades.
