Welcome to the Habits of an Optimist Course

What if optimism could be learnt?

Learning to think optimistically could help us experience life in a more positive and uplifting way.

Experts claim that the real difference between optimists and pessimists isn’t in their level of happiness or in how they perceive a situation, but in how they cope.

As the Dalai Lama says - 

"Choose Optimism, It feels better!"
We encourage you to go through the course with an open mind, and choose the 3 or 4 habits that resonate with you. 

Create a simple plan for yourself to start to embed these into your daily life.
