why happiness matters

Maria Sirois

You’ve felt the itch to make a transition in your career, relationships or health.  But where do you start?  And how do you navigate the uncharted territory of your calling without slipping back into old patterns or turning the good things in your life upside down? In our evening workshop we’ll blend soul with science, integrating tools and practices based on research from the fields of positive positive psychology and life coaching, and we’ll rediscover the wisdom you already carry within you to help you find your path to clarity, calm and meaning…and just a little bit more happy!

 

Maria Sirois BIOGRAPHY

Maria Sirois is a master teacher, facilitator and author. She is devoted to the science of well-being and the art of crafting a life and a work that embodies health, passion and success. As a positive psychologist (Psy.D.) and consultant, she focuses on the resilience of the human spirit particularly when under chronic stress, during significant transitions or changes, and/or feeling the shock of wholesale change. Known for her wisdom, authenticity and rampant humor, Maria brings a depth of experience in leadership development and stress management for corporate and non‐profit professionals alike. Her work in the medical, legal, human service, financial, technology and educational sectors focuses on building capacity and engagement around chronic stressors such as conflicting goals, difficult conversations, unrealistic expectations and moments of failure — using such moments to leverage sustained positive shifts in perspective and ability. Her home is in the Berkshire Mountains where she attempts on a daily basis to love her children well enough so that they too find a way to embrace the world with a grounded optimism and a sense of their own strengths. And on most days, she remembers to feed the cat.

Karlee Fain: Celebrity Life Coach, Author, Speaker

Karlee Fain

Karlee Fain, author, speaker, and teacher, knows that burning yourself into the ground to achieve your goals, is an outdated approach; we all thrive through nourishment, not punishment. Instead, she bridges soul with proven science to show her clients how to reclaim a life and career that are deeply fulfilling and prosperous.
For years, Karlee worked exclusively with celebrity clients, successfully showing the high-profile leaders of our culture how to create and sustain peak performance by cultivating deep self-care as part of an effective business strategy. Her clients win Grammys, launch fulfilling businesses, and play professional sports while having time for a personal life and family. But she began to wonder: what about people that don’t have an entourage, don’t they deserve to thrive too?
Now Karlee works privately with “every day rockstars” and in corporate and education setting, with people who want to have the “Big 3” – a thriving career, health & relationships. You can expect to walk away from a session with Karlee knowing the doable steps to leverage joy, rest, clarity and your authentic values, to live a career and life you love.
Karlee’s speciality is showing driven people how to reclaim more time in their day. Learn more about what is possible for you when you have the space to breathe again at EveryBodyThrive.com.

Kindness as a path to genuine happiness.

http://www.envisionkindness.org

David Fryburg, M.D. is the President and Co-Founder of the non-profit Envision Kindness. The mission of Envision Kindness is to promote kindness, empathy, and compassion, in the pursuit of a happier, healthier, and more connected world.

We do so by using the power of image-based stories of kindness to stir the innate predisposition of most people to be kind. Our images are crowd sourced from around the world, illustrating kindness, compassion, and love in a wide variety of forms and interpretations.

We then share these images with the broader public. This is a public health approach to promoting kindness in an era in which most people are overwhelmed by a barrage of negative news and other disconnecting content.

One of the challenges of a novel approach like this is establishing its value. Envision’s research has demonstrated that images of kindness and compassion affect people deeply, inspiring happiness, joy, optimism, gratitude, awe, and compassion much more than pretty photos such as puppies in a basket, bunnies, or flowers.

As a result of this and what is available in the published literature, we are enhancing these crowd sourced images by presenting them in unique ways to tell their respective stories and allow for those viewing it to be maximally inspired. We are coupling the presentation of these images with other works of wisdom, the science of kindness (which is fascinating), concepts in kindness, mindfulness, and humor.

One of the major outcomes of being kind is happiness. Kindness results in a profound (eudaimonic) type of happiness that most likely results from the fulfillment of biological human need—to have meaning and purpose. Meaning, it is posited, derives from connection that is achieved between two people (or really two living beings). That is, through acts of kindness both the giver and receiver get to connect to one another. That positive interpersonal (social) connection reaffirms to both that they have purpose.

David is a published endocrinologist and scientist who has been faculty at the University of Virginia, studied the effects of potential new drugs at Pfizer, and now leads teams of scientists from around the world to solve common problems in diagnosis of disease or assessing the impact of therapy. David is also an avid, published photographer and student of Tai Chi Chuan and other Eastern arts.

Why Happiness Matters – Maria Sirois, Psy.D.

 

So many life-giving reasons to choose happiness and other states of positivity – here are the top ten, all based on the latest research from the field of positive psychology:

 

1. Happiness brings respite to our heavy moments, which, despite all our best efforts, are part of the show.

2. Positivity elevates optimism, really useful if you are in the habit of reading the news these days.

3. Happiness draws other folk toward us…Yay!

4. It makes the day worth living – even when it’s a basic Monday or a regular Tuesday.

5. Happiness increases self-worth and confidence.

6. It changes the conversation away from pain points toward uplift and what is possible. Wouldn’t that be amazing around the water coolers of your day?!

7. It increases engagement at work…even when that work is repetitive and slightly boring.

8. Happiness is way more fun.

9. Positive emotions bring energy to our bodies.

10. Happiness opens the door for hope…not like hope that I’ll be invited to sing with Bon Jovi or hang with Denzel but grounded hope.

11. It broadens our ability to create a next better moment, upleveling creativity and innovation.

12. It is contagious, sometimes even with the irritable people breathing right next to us.

13. It undoes the effects of negative emotions, so that they stop owning so much of the real estate in our minds, and helps build inner resources like kindness, courage and tenacity.

Okay, so I can’t count – that’s 13 not 10 – but happiness also helps us move away from perfectionism where everything always has to be just so and into that territory where it’s okay to be human and kind of flawed and contributive to the world anyway.

So…that’s 14.

Here’s to happier moments = happier days = the life you have been looking to create!

With love, Maria

Dr. Siegel prefers to be called Bernie, was born in Brooklyn, NY. He attended Colgate University and Cornell University Medical College. He holds membership in two scholastic honor societies, Phi Beta Kappa and Alpha Omega Alpha and graduated with honors. His surgical training took place at Yale New Haven Hospital, West Haven Veteran’s Hospital and the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. He retired from practice as an assistant clinical professor of surgery at Yale of general and pediatric surgery in 1989 to speak to patients and their caregivers.

In 1978 he originated Exceptional Cancer Patients, a specific form of individual and group therapy utilizing patients’ drawings, dreams, images and feelings. ECaP is based on “carefrontation,” a safe, loving therapeutic confrontation, which facilitates personal lifestyle changes, personal empowerment and healing of the individual’s life. The physical, spiritual and psychological benefits which followed led to his desire to make everyone aware of his or her healing potential. He realized exceptional behavior is what we are all capable of. For more information on Bernie please visit his website at http://berniesiegelmd.com/
