How to achieve happiness

What is it that makes you happy? 

World-renowned psychologist Ed Diener says there is a lot more to happiness than simply being able to recognize it.

“The science of subjective well-being, happiness, life satisfaction, and positive feelings has grown enormously in the recent decade,” says Diener. “We now understand some of the most important factors influencing people's happiness, such as their temperament, the characteristics and policies of happy societies, and supportive social relationships.”

During his presentation at UBC Okanagan’s Distinguished Speaker Series on October 5, Diener will describe the habits and attitudes people can develop to increase their own happiness.

Diener will discuss how his findings will help improve health and longevity, superior work performance, lasting and supportive relationships, and even international policy decisions.

This event is free and open to the public, but online pre-registration is required. To register visit www.speakers.ok.ubc.ca or call 250-807- 9950 for tickets.
