For Women 40+
Seeking Joy and Fulfillment
In the end, isn’t that what we all want?
But what is it, really?
And how do we get more of it?
Many of us mistake happiness for pleasure. We seek moments of joy, and then feel disappointed when those moments don’t last.
Some of us believe that with more money comes more happiness. Not so. Once we have enough to fund our basic needs, money is not the ticket to greater happiness.
How do we know all this? Many studies back it up. In fact, extensive research has been done about happiness, as part of the field of positive psychology.
This is the research we’ll leverage in this course, Boost Your Happiness. I hope you’ll carve out the time and space to take this journey with me.
The truth is… We don’t sit down often enough and think about how we are living. We may complain about our lives and bemoan our struggles. We may rejoice at a stroke of good luck and savor small joys.
But too often, we let our lives lead us.
We continue to spend more time planning our annual vacations than we spend planning our lives.
This has to change. And this course is your first step.
Let’s begin our journey to happiness!
I get it, because I’ve been there.
I have lived most of my life unconsciously, fleeing pain and anxiety, chasing perfection and feel-good experiences. I sought to control everything and everyone around me in an effort to manage my fears.
It was a losing battle. I struggled with poor self-esteem and eating disorders (my way to numb) for many years. My anxiety was so out of control that I needed medication to alleviate the symptoms.
It wasn’t until my 50s, when my daughters left home and my marriage was in trouble, that I had to face the reality: I was unhappy. And only I could take the steps to create a better way of life for myself. Through a lot of therapy, I finally began to address my issues. I leaned into curiosity, awareness, and compassion. That work continues to this day.
And my own experience was what led me to investigate the copious research on happiness, with this goal: How do I help the women I serve become happier?
It’s a big question, one that is so critical to living our best lives. Luckily, one of my own superpowers is simplifying complex topics into commonsense, step-by-step approaches. And that’s exactly what I did here.
I can help you BECOME HAPPIER.
Because it’s YOUR TURN
