You and the gaucho happiness Challenge


"If I know everything about your external world, it can only predict 10% of your long-term happiness. 90 percent of your long-term happiness is predicted not by the external world, but by the way your brain processes the world."

- Shawn Achor


Why Participate?

A study that combined results from 51 randomized controlled interventions found that people prompted to engage in positive intentional activities, such as thinking gratefully, optimistically, or mindfully, became significantly happier (Sin & Lyubomirsky, 2009).

The Gist Of It All.

This is an independent, go-at-your-own-pace tool.  It is designed for small, weekly challenges.  Each week you will be provided a wellness topic with research-based information, challenges, and other supplemental resources.

At the end of each challenge, please submit a short reflection on your experiences and your evaluation of the content.
