Yet a sense of happiness and well-being has been linked to improved health and longevity. Knowing how to manage life’s circumstances to feel happier can improve physical and psychological health. This module examines the science of happiness and reviews some of the studies done by positive psychologists and organizations dedicated to improving world happiness.
