Free Happiness 101 Webinar to Reduce Suicide in Utah

When it comes to suicide, Utah currently ranks #9.  In an effort to save lives and lower the rate of suicide in Utah, Happiness 101 will offer a webinar to reach out to the rural areas of the state where suicide is the most prevalent.  The online class will be completely free.   There will be no prescreening.  Classes will be held on Wednesdays from 7-9pm from October 5th to November 9th.

This webinar will be absolutely FREE.  The only cost will be to buy the text book: The How of Happiness by Sonja Lyubomirsky.

Happiness 101 is an uplifting class where you will learn HOW to be happy, build a support system, and learn to break unhappy habits. Most people believe the myths of Happiness and therefore spend a great deal of energy chasing it, only to end up disappointed. Scientific research has now revealed the things that actually bring us Happiness. Even better: you can start being Happier NOW.

Topics covered:
  • The Myths of Happiness
  • The Happiness Setpoint
  • Why You Are Not Happy
  • What Happiness Is (and is not)
  • How and Why You Sabotage Your Happiness
  • Thinking Errors
  • Happiness Habits
  • The Paradox of Choice
  • The Hows of Happiness
  • Also: how exercise, sleep, social connection, money, beauty, the self-help movement, fame, the brain, American culture, religion, marriage, anti-depressants, anxiety, smiling and meditation relate to Happiness

Happiness 101 was offered elsewhere at a cost of $115. You have the opportunity to take the class at no charge from the comfort of your own home.

To keep it simple and the cost down, I will be communicating primarily through Facebook.  Please click here to join the group created specifically for this event then watch your inbox for updates as October 5th draws near.  If you do not have a Facebook account because you don’t want people to know who you are, feel free to create a temporary fake profile on Facebook.  We just want you there so you can learn how to be happier and hopefully reduce the incidents of suicide in Utah.

PLEASE HELP SPREAD THE WORD  to happy people, depressed people, young people (the age of onset of depression is now just 15 years old), elderly people, local people but ESPECIALLY people living in rural Utah.  PLEASE, right now think of anyone you know that lives in rural Utah and send them an invitation to this event.  We can save lives and you can help right now by helping to spread the word.

Science has proven that when one person becomes happier, it spreads like a virus.  Imagine if we could “infect” 1,000+ people with the H-A-P-P-Y virus in rural Utah via this webinar.  It would spread across the state and help save lives.

  1. Hello,

    I really would like to do the webinar. I’m going through hard time. My mom passed away in April and I lost my job. I decided to spend the summer with my boys and try to work from home on a new business but I really have a hard time. My husband is stressed out and want to quit his job (he is the bread winner). I dread having to go back to work. I need a way to feel happy again….



  2. Is this only available to people in Utah? Can someone from California join this as well? Thanks!

  3. Can the webinar still be viewed even though the event has passed for those of us who just learned about it?

  4. Hi Susan. Thanks for your question. No, I have removed all of the versions of the audio from access to the public. There is so much information, I don’t want folks trying to piece-meal it together. The good news is that the next Webinar will begin in March (see Upcoming events). If you just can’t wait that long and live in the Salt Lake area, you may take the live class in January. Thanks so much for your interest. 🙂
