The Happiness Project
Happiness is our birth right. But over the course of a life time things can make it harder for us to follow a path that makes enduring happiness possible. In this course, you learn how to create the path for you that increases your overall fulfillment with life.
We use the whale as a metaphor for improving happiness for this course – just as whales have guidance to go where they are best sustained in life, you too can create the right path for you to be best sustained.
This course is designed by Michelle LaBrosse, a world-renowned expert in accelerated learning (how to get your brain to work optimally) and Project Management. She is also a European trained chef and a registered yoga teacher. All of these skills combined create an incredible body of knowledge for one of life’s greatest projects: that of how to create a happier and more fulfilling life.

There are five parts to the Happiness Project:
Scheduling for Happiness. Making your happiness a priority is the first step in creating a happier existence. Increasing your fulfillment with life happens by making a conscious effort to adopt practices proven to create an enduring sense of well being. In this module, you learn how to make your happiness your priority.
Stretching for Happiness. The next part of the Happiness Project is learning a series of easy stretching and breathing exercises that can help you more comfortably exist in your body. To aid you in the practice of these exercises, we include a mat with all the stretching and breathing exercises you do in the order you do them. Unfortunately we can only ship the mats to the US and Canada, but you can use any yoga mat to complete the course.
Happiness – The Inside Job. In the third module, you explore how to adapt your lifestyle to those practices that create the most happiness for you, based on your unique interests and talents. You and you alone determine what fulfillment in life means for you.
Connecting for Happiness. The fourth part of the program is designed for you to learn how to connect with others and the world around you in the way that will bring more happiness into your life.
Eating to Create Happiness. The last part of the program centers on how to better enjoy the primal activity of living and which is something you do everyday: eating. You learn how to eat in ways that can create more happiness in your life – from the foods you eat, to how you prepare them, to how you share meals with others.
Our Learning Objectives are for you to:
- Learn how to make your happiness your top priority
- Adapt your lifestyle to the practices that create the most happiness for you
- Improve your ability to nurture connections with others that increase happiness
