I just finished Yale’s class on happiness — here are the 6 tricks that have already made me happier

Updated: Sep 30, 2019

Establishing a new habit is hard, but it can be done, and at the same time, lead to more happiness. I'm proof of that.

I just completed Yale's online 10-week course "Science of Well Being" — aka the "happiness" class. I already wrote about it halfway through because it was having such an immediate impact on my daily life.

Now that it's over, did it stick? Am I, in fact, happier?

Well, quantitatively, absolutely. At the beginning and end of the course, you're asked to take two surveys to measure your level of happiness. By both those measures, my happiness improved in a short amount of time.
