Have you ever wondered what your life would be like if you were
a little more positive, a little bit happier, and a little less stressed?
Do you ever dream about the possibility that life could be less hectic
and maybe even more fun?
I know I did.
That’s why when given the opportunity to become an “Authentic Happiness Coach” and study with the founder of the science known as Positive Psychology, Dr. Martin Seligman, I jumped on to the path of positivity, embraced the study of happiness with mind, body and spirit, and never looked back.
If you listen carefully to what this new science tells us you’ll easily see that you have the power to change, improve or enhance your life with tools that are scientifically validated and proven to work (that is if you allow them to.)
The study of happiness – as a science – quieted the cynic, the critic and the sarcastic in me. It gave my left brain a useful place to focus. Almost everything I learned made perfect logical sense to me. I could no longer deny that happiness is indeed a choice the same way good nutrition and exercise are.
If I wanted to be happier, I had to give that desire some focused attention, some consistent practice and some room to grow.
Even if I can’t always move the needle all the way up to “HAPPY” I know that even a few degrees of change can make life seem a little lighter and a little brighter. Know what I mean? Want to know more? Sign up NOW

Here are some key points you’ll learn on the path of positivity:
- You have a genetic “Happiness Setpoint” and without intervention you will always revert back to how happy you usually are (or aren’t)
- You can learn how to outsmart that setpoint by raising what scientists call your “Positivity Ratio”
- There are 5 Pillars of Well-Being all within your reach
- When you put your focus and attention on ‘what’s right’ and ‘what’s strong’ rather than on “what’s wrong” you build new neural pathways. The more you practice the bigger the pathways. There are advantages to this. Positive Emotions make you smarter, faster, more creative, healthier and even wealthier. It pays to know how to use your brain and body to achieve what is called the “Happiness Advantage”
- The consistent repetition of “Positivity Practices” will actually change the way your brain is wired and help you turn happiness into a habit – a really good one.

JoAnna Brandi, Author of “54 Ways to Stay Positive in a Changing,
Challenging and Sometimes Negative World”,
presents a one day workshop:
“From Positive Thinking to Positive Doing:
15 Ways to Put Positivity into Practice”
Make happiness your habit
Seating is limited
At this 10 AM- 4 PM workshop, you’ll have the opportunity to learn the many benefits of positive emotion and “lean in” if not “leap in” to happiness and well being. These 15 different Positivity Practices are the same ones I’ve taught at corporate retreats, spousal retreats, CEO meetings, sales meetings (and even at a Hadassah sponsored wine and chocolate gathering). These practices are designed to bring more joy and more well being into your life.
We live in a “sometimes negative world”. If we want that to change, we must change. Once you begin to notice the many places where you can add to the Positivity Ratio of the planet, you’ll find your “homework” pleasant and fun.
Join our positive learning community and discover:
- Five ways to experience more gratitude
- How to move into stillness and intuition quickly and deeply
- My favorite practical, easy techniques for overcoming your genetic happiness “setpoint” and strengthening your confidence as well as your immune system.
- Why it’s time to change your “story” and learn a new language of possibility, positivity and productivity. (Yes, happy people are more productive and better liked and attract more goodness to their lives.)
- What it’s like to spend a day “marinating” in Positive Energy, on purpose.
You’ll do it supported and encouraged by an “Authentic Happiness” Coach, your friends and neighbors. So grab a friend and Sign up today. Space is limited.
