Amplifying Sustainable Happiness
Dawson participants, as well as many from outside the College, are experiencing the concept of Sustainable Happiness (SH) and exploring its implications, both personally and professionally.
During the next six months, SH facilitators will be offering programs for Dawson students, staff and managers. A program for another college will start next week.
A recent SH certificate was also just completed by Colleges and Institutes Canada staff in Ottawa, while a certificate offered in Spanish is on-going with an international group. Both external groups piloted the use of the SH Journal, also introduced to students within four Dawson psychology courses this semester.
Student Services will make 500 additional journals available to students, serving as a method that may help students distance from stress.
Sustainable Happiness programs review sustainability principles and actions that help us as individuals, help others, and/or help the planet. How these actions contribute to happiness, in turn, is identified as a component of well-being that involves positive emotions, satisfaction and fulfillment.
