High on Happiness
May is Mental Health Awareness Month. Even if you’re sure you are healthy and free from any specific mental disorder, May is a good time to take a moment and evaluate your emotional well-being: do you see the glass half empty instead of half full? are you not only down on the world, but constantly second-guessing your own inner worth? are you even happy at all?
Happiness is elusive for many; we all know that. But you can still seek it out, and even “practice” happiness: on the Stanford campus in May, there are myriad illuminating ways to do just that. See the Cardinal At Work article, Happiness and Your Mental Health, for more insights — including information about The Happiness Challenge and the fascinating speakers coming to campus soon, including:
