Increase Your Happiness With


Happify Pioneer BadgeEarlier this year, I was invited to be a pioneer beta tester on the new site Happify and I’m pleased to report that the site is now open to the public.

According to the developers, recent scientific breakthroughs indicate that happiness is a skill that you can control. Just like physical fitness, there are skills you can do on a regular basis to make you happier. is designed to help people to develop these five happiness skills: Savor, Thank, Aspire, Give, Empathize. Users choose a track and new activities are unlocked daily. The selection of science-based activities and games encourage the development of optimism, self-confidence, gratitude, hope, compassion, purpose and empathy.

I have completed a few tracks and am currently enrolled in one that focuses on conquering negative thoughts. Other tracks include strengthening friendships, appreciating what you have, embracing life as an empty nester, enjoying parenting more, fueling your success at work, feeling more loved by your partner, maximizing your money and happiness, and finding more ‘me’ time, to name a few. You can share your posts with the Happify community and get to know some like-minded individuals or keep them private. There is also a forum where members can interact with one another and discuss various topics.

The tracks have gotten me thinking about ways I can be a more positive person, communicate better with others, and reduce my own stress. Since joining the site, I have started exercising regularly, meditating several times per week, and I take time to do other relaxing activities such as playing jigsaw puzzle games and find the object games on my tablet. In the past, my mentality was always Go, Go, Go.
