Happiness Habitudes

Happiness Habitudes will start with discovering your signature strengths and setting aside strategies that too many people tend to turn to that aren’t very helpful. The remainder of the course will be packed with information and strategies that research and science have proven to help amp up your well-being.

Each of the eight chapters of the course take less than an hour to work through. Each chapter offers practical, friendly habits and attitudes you can implement immediately to boost your happiness.

“I began studying positive psychology to increase my ability to thrive in times of change. This information has become so powerful in my life, I know I can't just keep it only for my use—it is too important! Unleashing strengths and knowing the most impactful strategies to focus on makes all the difference when times are tough.”

Dr. Thia, Course Author and Coach

What You’ll Learn


Discovering your Signature Strengths

In this introductory chapter, you will meet your course author and coach. After an overview of the course content, discover your signature strengths, and mobilize them to be your most tenacious self.


Finding Happiness and Positive Emotions

In this chapter, learn why it’s essential to move from the pursuit of happiness to experiencing happiness now. Happiness and positive emotions can increase your success and prevent some problems. Positive emotions can also serve as a realistic buffer for adversity and help with recovery.


Engaging in Resilience

Think of this chapter as our starting point for “how to bounce” when life happens. I think you’ll find lots of practical ideas and strategies. William Churchill said it well. “Success is not final; failure is not fatal. It is the courage to continue that counts.”



Loneliness is toxic, but good relationships are protective. In this chapter, you will learn about three persuasive conclusions from a longitudinal Harvard University study on how relationships can strengthen your life. Conflict is inevitable. In this chapter, you will learn how to rein in the headless horsemen and practice options that better permit relationships to continue and grow.


Learned Optimism and Meaning

Optimism is not as much genetic as it is an educational process that is positively life-changing. This chapter is about how to step up your hopefulness. This chapter will also help you to focus on identifying meaning and celebrating it.


Accomplishments and Focus
Let me teach you the power of threes in this chapter! In a world where people tend to distract themselves with technology, we need to be more skilled at managing our focus.



Who does forgiveness benefit most? You.

You’ve heard, “Forgive and forget.” That statement is only half true. In this chapter, you will learn why it is important to forgive but not to forget. In this unit, you will learn powerful positive techniques for incorporating forgiveness into your life.



A positive and negative thought can not occupy the same space. The habit of gratitude is literally life-changing, and in this chapter you will learn how to be more grateful each day.

How It Works

Fully Online

This is an online course that can be accessed with any device (we would recommend using a computer) that has internet access.

8 Chapters

There are eight individual chapters, which are detailed in the above section.  They are individually released allowing you to immerse yourself in one topic at a time. This minimizes overwhelm and time to implement changes in your life before diving into the next topic.

90 Days of Access

Students have access to the course information 24/7 for 90 days from enrollment. Therefore, you can access the information when it works best. There are eight chapters, so there is time built in at the end to re-review material or to catch-up if life happens.

Weekly Emails

Each week of the course your instructor will send an email to introduce the week’s topic ensuring you are notified of each chapters release. The communication will provide encouragement and maybe even be a joke or two.

Individualized Communication with Course Coach

As part of each chapter, there are prompted questions/discussion points for a communication with the course coach. You choose which items you want to discuss with your instructor. You have the sole discretion to determine how much you want to share. Each student receives a personalized, timely response to these communications. Our goal is to ensure each student reaches their goals for taking the course.

Progress Tracker

MPower Co uses Thinkific to deliver the course content, which tracks each students progress. This way you can pick up right where you left off.


Throughout the course you will get links to videos created by individuals who are leaders in the positive psychology space. Instead of having to research the top information from the top individuals in positive psychology, course author Dr. Thia has already done the work for students taking the course!


The course has links to assessments you can take (for instance, there is one about learning your signature strengths). These are third party assessments where there is no right or wrong answer. They are provided for the purpose of you learning and not to be judged or graded as part of the course.

Three Reasons Happiness Habitudes is Unique


Research and Science Based

Positive Psychology has a high value for being research and science based. It is education you can trust drawn from the work of top researchers and practitioners.

Unique Perspective

Positive Psychology Perspective

Positive psychology recognizes that most are already doing well. This course is not about fixing yourself or your weaknesses—it is about increasing what you do well today to increase your happiness. It is about having your best life moving forward.


Designed To Keep You Engaged

Throughout the course there are videos and communications with the instructor to engage yourself in the course and make your life better starting today. These videos and correspondences are integrated into the course so you are your most tenacious self by the end of the course.
