Please note the earlier start time. Book signing will be at 7:20. This is your chance to meet the creator of the 10 keys that have influenced us so much.

The 10 keys to happiness form the basis of much that we do at Action for Happiness in Brighton. Vanessa's recent book on these makes her a star speaker. This will be our chance to hear the author speaking directly, and to ask her how she came to chose these particular 10. She will be signing books beforehand (at 7:20).

About the book (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Keys-Happier-Living-Vanessa-King/dp/1472233425/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1471883435&sr=1-1): 'Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions' The Dalai Lama, patron of Action for Happiness. Vanessa King, positive psychology expert for Action for Happiness has created 10 key evidence-based actions that have been shown to increase happiness and wellbeing - at home, at work and in the world around you. If you have read The Art of Happiness, The Happiness Project or Sane New World, this book will be the perfect complement.

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 book, Vanessa King of Action for Happiness has drawn 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.
