This 7-part course helps teach you how to make positive changes in your daily actions. You’ll learn how we often think about happiness in the wrong ways and how to change those beliefs. You’ll be happier, more productive and less stressed. This is the same program, using brain science and positive psychology, that Happy Brain Science has been teaching live for years to thousands of employees in the live workshop The Science of Being Happy and Productive at Work.

“This program is the perfect mix of interaction and teaching: I would recommend this course to everyone! As I learned about the science of happiness I found myself invigorated by the new knowledge, and I made goals and plans on how to implement the lessons into my everyday life. The format of writing things down and the included worksheets are great for reflecting and focusing on what YOU can do to increase your happiness.” – Grant Shonkwiler, Founder & Member of Thrive 9-5 Online Course
