Trying to be happy is sometimes compared to chasing a butterfly: the chase is fun, but what will you do when you’ve caught it? In this look at the science of happiness and wellbeing, Andy Gibson, founder of Mindapples, discusses what happiness is, some popular ways to get it, and how to be happy without ignoring the sad times, too.

Packed with practical tips from modern science and ancient wisdom, this session asks what it means to be happy, how you can catch the butterfly of happiness for yourself – and what to do after that.

YOU WILL LEARN:

  • About the science and psychology of your wellbeing and happiness
  • Practical tips around how to optimise your own wellbeing and happiness
  • Ways to enrich your life in the long-term by embracing where you are now

Andy Gibson is a writer and educator specialising in helping people manage their minds. He founded the ‘5-a-day for your mind’ campaign, Mindapples, which helps individuals and businesses improve their wellbeing and performance. His latest book, The Mind Manual, is out now published by Hamlyn. Visit mindapples.org
