Description: The global pandemic brought greater stress for most, yet interestingly it also exposed how a small percentage of people experienced greater happiness from deeper meaning in life. Everyone went through the same experience, but not everyone experienced the same emotions. Why?     Traumatic stress affects people in different ways, and researchers who track global happiness are seeing a spike in meaningful experiences, joy, fulfillment, and happiness since 2019. Much of this increase seems linked to behavioral and neurological patterns that can be replicated in organizations and families across all socio-economic variables. Emerging research has exposed remarkable findings to help clients and patients in need. For instance, did you know there are 31 elements that lead to predictable happiness? Or why older Americans score higher than adolescents in experiencing happiness? Or that a salary increase may pull happiness levels down.     While chronic stress continues for some, with continual symptoms of anxiety, depression, anger, fear, burnout, or languishing, an emerging group of researchers have been studying how difficult times can lead to closer relationships, a desire to help others, a peaceful mindset and generous giving to those in need in their community. While some feel tremendous panic – others are living with greater peace. Sharing these new findings is a practical way to bring mental wellness and the skills of building happiness to your clients and community after years of traumatic pain and loss.     This overview will cover the cluster of factors that seem most linked to increased levels of happiness and meaning you can share with the clients and patients you serve. Including biological and behavioral patterns that are shown to build happiness and expand social connections. While some are overwhelmed, exhausted, and struggling with daily activities of living; others are managing with renewed mental toughness, focus and happiness.  Gaining awareness of emerging research for faster psychological recovery may explain why some reach new levels of happiness and post-traumatic growth, much like those who survived World War II and have been called “the Greatest Generation.”     The good news is happiness is a skill that can be taught to prevent children or aging adults from feeling they are stuck in trauma. The neuroscience of creating happiness has been tracked globally. This overview with practical application skills will add value to you, your coworkers and clients.
