FOH Employee Assistance Program December 2020 Campaign
Your Happy Place
Happiness is a state of well-being that we all strive to experience, though many of us struggle to explain what it means to be truly happy. In general, we might all agree that happiness is a positive emotion, or how we feel at a particular moment in time, yet genuine happiness is a little more difficult to describe. Discovering what genuine happiness is for yourself may come from having a sense of meaning and purpose, deep satisfaction, and profound contentment. In the midst of such challenging times it can be especially hard to stay positive and focus on being happy, but there are some valuable—and smart—reasons why we need to try. Learn about the benefits and see how you can invite more delight into your life and feel more fulfilled each day.
This issue of Solutions discusses:
- The benefits of being happy
- Tips for adopting a happier, more fulfilling lifestyle
