“Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human
existence.” – Aristotle
Do you want to be happy?
It goes without saying that everyone wants to be happy. And yet, a poll administered on
3,000 Americans revealed that only 20% of people felt happy and that they were flourishing
and enjoying their lives while 60% were not depressed but not exactly happy and the
remaining 20% were unhappy. With such a small minority finding their true happiness,
what are the rest of us doing wrong?
The good news is that happiness is trainable – something that can be learned - but many of
us do not possess the knowledge, the right tools or stamina to help us become happier and
healthier versions of ourselves.
This is exactly what Workout for Happiness (WfH) offers. WfH is a 3- and 6-month program
designed to train people to increase their levels of happiness and wellbeing by using
scientifically proven methods. WfH candidates are guided while they work on the mental,
physical and social levels by way of three pillars.
These are:
• Mandatory to-dos: a combination of tasks that are meant to make the candidate
physically and mentally fit to become happy
• Personal to-dos: the pursuit of happiness is subjective and means something
different to everyone. At the beginning, the candidate makes a list of all their to-dos –
big and small – and consistently works on checking them off throughout the program
• Weekly themes: Each week a task is given that explores a new realm of happiness
research. Their purpose is to help develop feelings of compassion and gratitude,
among others.
WfH sets itself apart from other self-help programs because it encourages you to become
active – or more so than you already are. Contrary to what some might think, true
happiness is something that you have to get up and actively work towards but it does not
help simply knowing this on the rational level, you must experience it - it’s all in the doing
and WfH wants to help bring you there.
This summer twelve candidates completed the first 6-month test phase. Given its success,
we are now looking for interested individuals to take part in the first 3-month program,
which starts on November the 14th! Because we are still in the trial phase, the program is
for free!
For more information about the program, visit: (password: happiness) and if you’re interested,
please email us at with a few sentences introducing
yourself and why you are interested. We will then be in touch to get to know you better. We
are very much looking forward to hearing from you!

    Cleaning can be an outlet for energy and negative emotions too. Removing dust, dirt and clutter from your environment provides you with a cleaner, more comfortable atmosphere so you can feel happier and more relaxed. You're more likely to be able to unwind if you feel like your cleaning 'to-do' list has been ticked off. A one happiness perspective of mine though.
