Are you searching for ways to bring more happiness into your life?  Would you like a free resource that will guide you, for an entire year, to help you accomplish this?

I had the opportunity to interview PositivePsychopedia.com's Kira Newman to talk about her new experiment, called the "Year of Happy."

As Kira puts it on her site: 

Positive psychology, the science of happiness, is learning new things every day about how to bring more positive emotions and meaning to our lives. But the trick is sorting through the mess of sensational media headlines and dry academic papers and applying those lessons – can we do it?

In this course, each month of 2015 will focus on one skill or activity proven to make us happier, like optimism, relationships, meaning, and goals (see below). As we practice new life habits, we’ll also be learning through readings, videos, and discussions."

Kira is a digital journalist who has published over 1,300 articles on sites like The Huffington Post and Tech Cocktail. One of her earlier courses, The Honesty Experiment, was featured on Psychology Today and attracted participants from around the world.

If you're searching for more happiness, you'll want to make sure you catch this interview!
