Happiness Cheat Codes show

Happiness Cheat CodesJoin Now to Follow

This podcast is all about making you happier by giving you weekly missions to do. Each mission is divided into easy, normal, and hard difficultly levels just like a game. These missions are based on scientific research into what makes people happier with the occasional “Hey that sounds cool. Let’s try that!” mission thrown in for a bit of spice. They are like cheat codes for life. This podcast is NOT about positive thinking, self esteem, visualizing your inner child, or any of that crap. It’s all about doing things that have been proven through research to make people happier and doing things that make you better at life. So join me as I do these missions right along with you. We can try out some of these cheat codes for a happy life together and see if they work. Give it a shot for a month and see if the missions help. Pick a mission, choose a difficultly level, do the mission, and let me know how it went. You can find me on Google+ or Facebook as Happiness Cheat Codes or Twitter as HappinessCodes. Good luck with the missions!
