Announcing a new Meetup for The Science of Happiness: Positive Psychology!

What: Self-regulation: Why it?s important for your happiness and how to get it!

When: Thursday, September 23,[masked]:00 PM

Where: Columbia University
Amsterdam & 115th St Warren Hall Room 416
New York, NY 10001

This event focuses on how to increase your will-power and self-regulation.

No, I?m not just referring to resisting cheese cake after your 4 course meal or a drink at the bar when you know you?ve had your limit.

I?m referring to days when you tell yourself you?re going to go to the gym the following morning? A seemingly fabulous idea after a full dinner? yet, come morning time you hit snooze.

Or when you tell yourself, I?m going to start that blog I?ve always wanted and then you don?t. Or procrastinate on big tasks? the things you know you ?should? do, but don?t. Or being able to turn off your voice-of-judgment when you want to go to bed and controlling your anxiety level when you get stressed out.

Learn what research in positive psychology says on the subject, such as the fact that self-regulation correlates with goal achievement and happiness. Learn how self-regulation works and best practices for showing up in the world the way you want to.

Please note that we start promptly at 7pm and go till about 9pm (sometimes slightly later). If you anticipate being late, please e-mail me and let me know. In the past, we?ve had some people show up over half an hour late, at which point the security guards downstairs had closed the building already and they couldn?t get in :-(. If I know you?re on your way I?ll get a group member awaiting your call in case it?s locked.

I will post the room number shortly.

See you all soon!
