Yale University recently opened its most popular class ever: teaching real-life coping skills that people can use in the real world. While most self-help classes are just a lot of chitter-chatter, this 10-week “The Science of Well-Being" class is actually changing students’ lives for the better. So far, 1 in 4 Yale students have taken it, and several swear by what they’ve learned.And did we mention that it’s totally FREE?
The class is essentially a step-by-step course to boost your happiness. It’s offered throughCourseraand has already been taken by over 225-thousand students. So, what’s the big deal? Here are the four tips people swear by:
- Focus on your strengths.
- Invest in experiences rather than material items.
- Be present in the really great moments in your life, savor them, and remember them when you’re feeling down.
- Spread kindness wherever you go and show gratitude for the things you love.
