‘Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.’  The Dalai Lama

We all want to be happy.

But what does that actually mean? And what can we do in our everyday lives to be happier?

Fortunately, psychologists, neuroscientists and other experts now have evidence of what really makes a difference and helps us to be happier and more resilient to life’s ups and downs.

In this talk, Vanessa King – a board member of Action for Happiness and one of the UK’s leading experts on positive psychology, draws on the latest scientific studies to create a set of evidence-based practical actions.

They will help you connect with people, nurture your relationships and find purpose. You’ll get ideas for taking care of your body, making the most of what’s good and finding new ways to stimulate your mind.
