What Truly Makes Us Happy Video

Kelley faculty presenter: Nichole Alspaugh Williams, Ed.S, LMHC, NCC

We’re pleased you’ve chosen to explore positive psychology. In this video, you’ll explore research-proven habits that boost levels of personal and professional happiness. After watching the video, practice what you’ve learned by implementing these habits this week:

  1. Return to your gratitude journal using these prompts:
    • Begin or end your day by writing about three things for which you’re grateful.
    • Spend one minute reflecting on each one.
    • Write about one thing that upset you. How might this be a blessing in disguise? How may you turn it into an advantage? What could be good about it?
  2. Limit the time you spend on social media to 30 minutes maximum.
  3. Savor one thing each day. Write about it in your journal.
  4. Meditate for five minutes each day. Consider using resources such as Headspace, Calm, or YouTube to aid your practice.
