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. Local group website: www.actionforhappinessbrighton.org.uk .

ONLINE: December 10 Keys Group with Action for Happiness Brighton

### 10 Keys Groups offer an online chance to meet others near you who care about happiness, learn more about how to live a happy life and take action that makes a meaningful difference.

Each month we explore one of the 10 Keys to Happier Living - evidence-based ways to create a happier and more meaningful life.
Currently these 10 Keys groups run on Zoom (see our calendar for other face-to-face events).

They give you the chance to check in with others in the group, explore the monthly theme and set personal actions to take forward in your own life.

We recommend you RSVP by officially joining the 10 Keys Group here https://actionforhappiness.org/groups/brighton. We can then send you additional info and resources relevant to the session.

ONLINE Happy Cafe - Meet New People and Learn about Happiness

Online event

These online happy cafes originated in Brighton UK, but seeing as it is virtual then wherever you live you are welcome to join us at this event (time differences permitting) to explore the 10 keys to happier living.

This month's theme will be our calendar theme of Do Good December which links to the many of the 10 Keys to Happier Living such as 'Giving/Do Things for Others'.

This video explains more fully how our virtual Happy Cafes work https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ePxzC9A76sM.

Attending a Happy Cafe is a can help you learn more about the science of happiness, including the related benefits to our physical/mental health and personal effectiveness. Actions we look at can support people who are feeling overworked, and suffering from depression or anxiety (all of which should be seen as complementing any advice a trained doctor can give). The cafe can help us make a positive difference in our society, playing our part in creating a happier, more compassionate world.

Happy Cafes are also good fun, and a way to connect with people across our local community to learn from and inspire each other. We are a friendly, inclusive and supportive bunch of people so even if you haven't been before, come and join us, you'll be made to feel more than welcome.
