Learn the Tips for Happiness…In Harvard?!


Did you know that at Harvard, one of the most prestigious universities in the world, offered the most popular and successful course on happiness?

No, I am not kidding!

The Positive Psychology class was taught by author and lecturer Tal Ben Shahar in the early 2000s. It attracted 1400 students per semester. 20% of Harvard graduates took this elective course!

According to Ben Shahar, the class – which focuses on happiness, self-esteem and motivation – gave students the tools to succeed and face life with more joy. “Professor Happy” (as some have nicknamed him) highlighted in his classes 14 important tips for improving the quality of our personal status and contributing to a positive life:

Tip #1: Thank God for everything you have:


Write down 10 things you have in your life that give you happiness. Focus on the good things!

Tip #2 – Practice physical activity

Experts say exercising helps improve mood. 30 minutes of exercise is the best antidote against sadness and stress.


Tip #3 – Breakfast

Some people miss breakfast for lack of time or not to get fat. Studies show that breakfast gives you energy, helps you think and perform your activities successfully.


Tip #4 – Be Assertive

Ask what you want and say what you think. Being assertive helps improve your self-esteem. Being left and remaining silent creates sadness and hopelessness.


Tip #5 Spend your money on experiences

A study found that 75% of people felt happier when they invested their money in travel, courses and classes. The rest said they felt happier when buying things.


Tip #6 – Face your challenges

Studies show that the more you postpone something, the more anxiety and tension you generate. Write short weekly lists of tasks and complete them.


Tip #7 – Put everywhere nice memories, phrases and photos of your loved ones

Fill your fridge, your computer, your desk, your room, and your life of beautiful memories.


Tip #8 – Always greet others and be nice to other people

More than 100 studies state that just smiling changes the mood.


Tip #9 – Wear comfortable shoes

If your feet hurt you, you become moody, says Dr. Keith Wapner, President of the American Orthopedics Association.


Tip #10 – Take care of your posture

Walk straight with your shoulders slightly backwards and the front view helps to maintain a good mood.



Tip #11 – Listen to music

It is proven that listening to music awakens you to sing, this will make your life happy.


Tip #12 – What you eat has an impact on your mood
  • Do not skip meals.
  • Eat lightly every 3 to 4 hours and keep glucose levels stable.
