Get Happy! Event
On October 20, 2015 Dr. Bryan Sexton, an Associate Professor with the Duke University School of Medicine, shared simple strategies that can promote health through happiness with hundreds of individuals from the Buffalo and Monticello communities.
The strategies he shared were simple: practice 3 Good Things everyday for 2 weeks (it takes less than 3 minutes). Good memories slip away too quickly, while the bad ones stick like Velcro — especially when we’re tired. 3 Good Things retrains our brains so that we can remember the good things & our role in bringing them about. Studies have shown that practicing 3 Good Things is as strong as taking anti-depressants and the effects can last for six months.
