Join Chris Croft for an in-depth discussion in this video Welcome to the series, part of Happiness Tips.
- Welcome to this series of videos on how to get more happiness into your life. Each one is going to be about something that you can actually do and continue to do every day to increase the enjoyment of your life. Actually this course isn't just about something frivolous like having fun. I think it's the most important subject there is. When you think about it, why would you do anything if it doesn't make you happier? Why would you build a company, or try to make more money, or have children, or be more assertive, or improve your time management if these things don't make you happier? So happiness is the thing.
I'm Chris Croft, I'm a qualified engineer, and I've filmed several courses on project management. So why am I making a program on happiness? Well, the subject I began studying is time management. Time management leads to both project management in one direction and happiness in the other. Your life is only time, so time is the most important thing there is, and best use of time is maybe whatever makes you happy in the short term and in the longer term.
So it's my study of time management that has led me to investigate and think about happiness. There are lots of books written about what exactly happiness is, and many of them don't fully agree. Also plenty of books on positive mental attitude, but not many on day-to-day practical things that you can do. That's what I've wanted to tackle on this video course. So it's happiness examined closely by an engineer in order to come up with practical methods for increasing it.
I'd like to start by saying you can do it. You really can increase the amount of happiness that you experience in your life from day-to-day. Any one of my 50 ideas will make a difference, and you can choose as few or as many as you like to put into practice. So let's get started.
- Misbeliefs about happiness
- Focusing on good
- Building gratitude
- Eliminating sources of unhappiness
- Reducing stress
