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 .

Upcoming events (4+)

Happy Cafe at the Beach Club

Needs a location

(This is a face to face event with no online option.). Please note that in the hot weather we may be outside so please look for us both upstairs and downstairs.

The Happy Cafe is a way to find out more about scientifically based happiness techniques in a relaxed atmosphere.

The Happy Cafe focuses on changing how you feel by playing games that subtly make you think in a happier way. It is hoped that you feel better when you leave the Beach Bar than when you arrived!

We very much look forward to seeing you all. The event starts at 5 pm but we will just chat until 5.15 pm when the games will start.

The Beach Club is on the sea front, to the west of the I360 and also the upside down house which is just next door.

See you there.

How the Sea increases our Happiness

Needs a location

The science of blue spaces tells us that being by water is even more beneficial to our wellbeing and happiness than green spaces. And we are exceptionally lucky to live so near to the sea.

Claudine Nightingill-Rane, a Life Coach, Blue Health Coach and Body Image Coach will talk about the many science-backed ways in which being in, on or by the sea enhances our wellbeing: physical, mental and emotional. She will also outline how we can make the most of these spaces to improve our mood, contentment and emotional satisfaction, including having an impact on our self worth, body image and mindfulness. Claudine's website: Seascapeblue. The session will include a short grounding meditation.

This is our regular meeting in the Latest Bar, on the first Tuesday of each month. We provide ideas and information on the science of happiness. Aftwerwards you can contemplate this with yourself, then discuss with a few others, and maybe in the whole room. An opportunity to discover new ways of increasing the happiness of yourself and those around you. We will appreciate a donation of £5 in CASH if you can; if this is difficult for you, less is acceptable.

Online Happy Cafe - Meet New People and Learn about Happiness

Link visible for attendees

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 New Ways November which links to the many of the 10 Keys to Happier Living such as 'Trying Out/Learning New Things'.

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.
