ABOUT ACTION FOR HAPPINESS

We all want to live happy and fulfilling lives and we want the people we love to be happy too. So happiness matters to all of us.

Happiness is about our lives as a whole: it includes the fluctuating feelings we experience everyday but also our overall satisfaction with life. It is influenced by our genes, upbringing and our external circumstances - such as our health, our work and our financial situation. But crucially it is also heavily influenced by our choices - our inner attitudes, how we approach our relationships, our personal values and our sense of purpose.

Action for Happiness works to support evidence based practices and theories that support well being.

Check out the national site (http://www.actionforhappiness.org/) for resources, FAQs and much more.
