Wednesday, December 16, 2020 5:30 to 6:30 pm Gaetano Vaccaro, Ph.D,  Phycologist, Blue Tiger Recovery Un-Happy Days: How To Feel Good Even on a Bad Day Most people know that they want to be happy, and have some idea of what it would take. Most of the time, we are wrong!  We are pretty good at finding pleasure, and not-so-good at finding happiness. In the last 20 years, research on happiness has consistently shown that we are not very good at predicting what will bring us long term happiness and most of the things that bring us momentary pleasure actually make us UN-Happy in the long run. So, what is the key to happiness? Is it wealth, or fame… a great job, lots of friends, vacations and traveling, or family, dogs, and on-demand movies?  Join Gaetano Vaccaro to discover that happiness may come from where you least expect it, even when life is just plain tough! Join us on Zoom to learn more.
