Come on, get happy! 20+ happiness tips from the #DitchBook community

The power of happiness makes a positive impact on your life and the lives of those around you. What makes YOU happy? How do we find ways to increase happiness once we find out?

Happiness is more than just being in a good mood, it’s defined as a state of well being. Sure, we know happiness when we feel it and we can see it in others. It’s important to increase happiness in our daily lives at home and at work.

We ALL want to be happy.

But how do we actually go about doing it?

And how can we increase happiness in education?

In a recent #DitchBook Twitter chat moderated by Kim Strobel, we talked all about the Science of Happiness. The #DitchBook community shared their thoughts on the topic along with TONS of ways to increase happiness in our lives.

Check them out in the summary of this week’s chat below!
