6 Simple Steps to Happiness

Happiness is not taught in school, which is a pity. As a child, no one told me what it is, no one taught how to be happy - that's what I learned just discovering positive psychology, which is also called the science of happiness. And I'm so fascinated by it that abandoned corporate career to get a master's degree in psychology. Finally I could get answers to questions about happiness and found people who told me about how to achieve it.

I've come a long way, and now I want to tell you about the major milestones on the path to happiness. They have changed my life and made me an incorrigible optimist. Moreover, they have become my religion.
