Summary:

Many patients and healthcare providers haven’t thought much about the concept of happiness. They want to be happy, but they’re not quite sure what it is nor what they can do to be happier. 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. It also explains the physiological changes the body experiences with happiness and gives evidence-based strategies for improving happiness and sense of well-being.

Objectives:

The goal of this program is to provide healthcare professionals with information about the science of happiness, including evidence-based strategies for improving well-being. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Define happiness, positive psychology and well-being
  • State three physiological and three psychological benefits of happiness
  • Describe four evidence-based strategies for increasing happiness
