Happiness, 6.15 (V) Week 6, Video 13 - The 7 Happiness Sustaining Strategies (3)

Now if you find that you don't want to try something because it makes you uncomfortable, or because it's not me, I'd recommend taking a deep breath and giving it a whole hearted try firs,t before rejecting it. Here's Art again, one last time, expressing the sentiment in his own words. » I tell people who are on that closed to experience end of things, that if your initial reaction to new things is to discount them just because they're new, count to ten before you say no. And ask yourself am I doing this because it's a bad idea or am I just doing it because, if I'm just saying no because it's new. And if you're just saying no because it's new, then really give yourself a chance to try it any how. » Okay so the seventh and final strategy is a somewhat opportunistic one that kind of just fell into my lap. Just a few days back I attended a mindfulness workshop conducted by Swati Desai, a mindfulness consultant from Los Angeles, California. I really liked the workshop and I asked Swati if she'd be willing to lead a six-week long virtual, mindfulness camp for those who have completed this class, and she's agreed. Why six weeks long, and how does virtual mindfulness camp work? I will let Swati answer those questions in the next video which is an optional one. Meanwhile, to summarize, here are the seven strategies for sustaining your happiness levels after this course ends. I hope that you take advantage of as many of these strategies as you can.
