ABOUT THE COURSE

Exploring What Matters is a secular, science-based course for people who want to learn how to live happily and spread happiness to those around them. It was created by the Action for Happiness charity to help people tune in to what really matters in life, connect with people around them and find small ways to start taking action.

On the course you will:

  • Meet with like-minded people to share about what really matters in life and find new ways of looking at things.
  • Enjoy expert videos, mindfulness exercises and a handbook full of resources to help you break big ideas into manageable chunks.
  • Take time each week to think of small actions you can take to create happiness for yourself and those around you.
  • People find it really valuable and often refer to what they learn on the course as life-changing.

Course Structure:

Week 1: What really matters in life? We'll explore whether a greater focus on happiness and wellbeing might be better for all of us.

Week 2: What actually makes us happy? We'll explore the role of outer circumstances and inner attitudes in our wellbeing.

Week 3: Can we find peace of mind? We'll explore some of the skills and practices that can help us in difficult times.

Week 4: How should we treat others? We'll explore how to treat others and how we can become more compassionate.

Week 5: What makes for great relationships? We'll explore how our relationship to others impacts our own happiness.

Week 6: Can we be happier at work? We'll explore what makes us happy at work and what can we do about it.

Week 7: Can we build happier communities? We'll explore how to create communities that are more caring, connected and happy.

Week 8: How can we create a happier world? We'll explore how to live in a way that contributes to a happier world, not just for ourselves but for others too.

WHO THE COURSE IS FOR

This course is for anyone interested in exploring how to create happiness for themselves or others. Maybe you’re someone who could do with some new approaches to try out in your own life. Or maybe you’re passionate about creating happier communities and a happier world. Either way, by coming together with others locally on this course you can find the inspiration and support you need find the actions that work for you.
