- Yale University is offering a free course online — The Science of Well-Being — that teaches you how to be happier.
- Professor Laurie Santos taught “Psychology and the Good Life” first in spring 2018 in response to concerning levels of student depression, anxiety, and stress. It became the most popular class in Yale’s history and garnered national and international media attention.
- To share the class’ contents with a wider audience, Santos created a Coursera course. You can audit it entirely for free, or opt for a $49 certificate of completion.
- I’m currently taking the class, and I’ve been surprised by how truly helpful it has been — it’s interesting, but it also feels concretely useful.
