Book Description :

A leading expert on health psychology, well-being, and resilience argues that happiness is the key to fast tracking our professional and personal success. Everyone wants to be happy and successful. And yet the pursuit of both has never been more elusive. As work and personal demands rise, we try to keep up by juggling everything better, moving faster, and doing more. While we might succeed in the short term, it comes at a cost to our well-being, relationships, and, paradoxically, our productivity. In The Happiness Track, Emma Seppala, the science director of the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education at Stanford University and director of the Yale College Emotional Intelligence Project, explains that our inability to achieve sustainable fulfillment is tied to common but outdated notions about success. We are taught that getting ahead means doing everything that’s thrown at us (and then some) with razor-sharp focus and iron discipline; that success depends on our drive and talents; and that achievement cannot happen without stress. The Happiness Track demolishes these counter-productive theories. Drawing on the latest findings from the fields of cognitive psychology and neuroscience—research on happiness, resilience, willpower, compassion, positive stress, creativity, mindfulness—Seppala shows that finding happiness and fulfillment may, in fact, be the most productive thing we can do to thrive professionally. Filled with practical advice on how to apply these scientific findings to our daily lives, The Happiness Track is a life-changing guide to fast tracking our success and creating the anxiety-free life we want.

Book Description :

This project focuses on the development and implementation of a collaboratively developed and presented workshop that can enable students to gain skills in stress-management using tools described in a book written by Russ Harris, The Happiness Trap. Russ Harris breaks down concepts of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) in easy to understand terms and provides tools which individuals can use to apply the skills of ACT to their own lives. The intention of developing a workshop around these skills is to promote health and wellness among students and lessen the risk of them experiencing negative consequences of stress. Another aspect of this project is the examination of a long-running wellness workshop, which is done by analyzing post-workshop evaluations completed by each of the forty-one workshop participants and by reflecting upon each workshop conducted. Feedback from workshop participants is overwhelmingly positive, and most attendees indicate that they learned new information, would utilize the tools given in the future, and would recommend the workshop to a friend.
