Hi Emma,

Thank you for https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/feeling-it/201506/embracing-hardship-surprising-secret-happiness

To the "Happiness" wiki subject - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Happiness - for open teaching and learning at World University and School (which is like Wikipedia with best STEM-centric OpenCourseWare - eg. CC MIT OCW in 7 languages and CC Yale OYC and planning online accrediting CC university degrees) ? This wiki Subject (http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Subjects) and most others (e.g. see the "Meditation" subject at WUaS) at WUaS are planned in many many languages.

All the best, 
Scott

Kick those headaches to the curb! Great article by +Carly Hamilton for +Fulfillment Daily  #meditation  
Many US Americans suffer from migraines which means lost workdays, missed social activities, etc. Try implementing a short, daily meditation practice to help ditch your Rx for good!

Research shows chasing happiness actually makes us less happy. Here's the secret! Via +Fulfillment Daily 
We often try too hard to be happy. Instead of chasing happiness, we can learn to be present.

I cannot recommend Daniel and Stand Out Designs more highly. I hired Daniel to work on our center’s website and we are delighted with the results! “Stand Out Designs” is a great name for Daniel’s company because his websites literally stand out in their simplicity, attractiveness and efficiency. Working with Daniel was a pleasure – his work was timely and anyone who has worked with Daniel knows that he is extremely personable. Daniel seems to always be on the cutting edge of new technological developments. Not only did Daniel create exactly the type of website we were looking for, he went above and beyond what we asked him to propose new and innovative ways to message and frame our content, and efficient technologies to insert into our website to enhance its usability. Finally, Daniel is always timely in his deliveries and reasonable in his prices. I cannot recommend Daniel and Stand Out Designs more highly.” - Emma Seppala PhD, Associate Director, Stanford Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education
