Throughout the entire semester in this class we have learned the Science of Happiness , and all of it’s benefits and how happiness is the best medicine for many if not most of the problems we face. From defining the science of happiness to academic well being we have learned how to be happy and many ways to promote and foster happiness to those around us. Each lecture , reading and assignment were thought out in a way that allowed each of them to be placed a top each other like building blocks , for example the we learned about our strengths and virtues , depression and mood states then anxiety disorders. Each of those topics reinforced the other , which was the trend throughout the entire class. Learning our strengths and virtues allowed to be able to combat the horrors that come with depression and anxiety disorders.
The major lessons that I learned from this class was mindfulness and how to present in the current moment , and to not stress about the problems that we may ensue down the road. Taking mindfulness and practicing it daily has helped me out personally , because I suffered with anxiety and all of it’s symptoms and it was hard for me to not worry or stress about the problems in the future until I began to implement mindfulness into my routine daily. With each mindfulness exercise we did in class I gained more and more happiness , to me it was something very tiny and simple but , It gave me something gave me something so grand and that my happiness and I am to live with it daily.
Each topic discussed in class was a tremendous help to and even those whom I shared it with. Every topic was vital and applicable to ones everyday life. The two that I gravitated towards the most were positive psychology and mindfulness. With my deeper knowledge and understanding of both of them I have reaped so many of the benefits , and apply the skills needed to use them to my daily life. In school and in work I practice positive psychology and no matter what I may be facing I try to remain positive. With the stressors that ensue with work and school mindfulness exercises and positive thinking really help me stay grounded and also keep my happiness.
I brought each of these important factors into my life that promote and foster happiness , by simply adjusting my attitude and way of thinking which could and sometimes still can be very pessimistic. With the change from pessimism to more positivity I have seen the change for the better in my mood and over all well being. I plan to share this with others , so they to can experience more happiness. That will also help this whole way of thinking grow among other people. Though I have been practicing this for a while it has still been I problem for me to stop stressing , and it is something I must work on and find something combat the best. Simply because it hinders me from my happiness and my success.
All of friends , family and followers have enjoyed every social media post that I have posted and they have personally seen the change in me. Knowing that the break is coming they are excited for me to share the knowledge that I know about the science of happiness with them , so they can implement the things they have read about via my social media in action in their own lives. I have also passed many of the things have learned on to my friends and they to have shared the skill and techniques. Soon all will that happiness is the best medicine.
