Nearly two-thirds of teens in the United States are stressed out and many don’t know how to handle it. The inability to reduce and cope with stress negatively impacts health, friendships, relationships with parents, and academic performance.
That’s why Discovery Education teamed up with LG Electronics USA to create the Discover Your Happy program. An extension of LG’s Experience Happiness initiative, the Discover Your Happy program offers science-based tools and activities aligned to the Six Sustainable Happiness skills: mindfulness, human connection, positive outlook, purpose, generosity, and gratitude.
Happiness is a skill that flourishes with attention and practice.
Discover Your Happy provides dynamic digital curriculum and standards-aligned resources teaching happiness as a skill at no cost to youth, educators, and families. All the resources from Discover Your Happy makes growing the happiness muscles accessible with activities for the whole family, as well as digital lesson bundles for the classroom.
The Six Sustainable Happiness Skills are tools based in science to soothe and calm the brain and nervous system. When practicing the skills, people learn to identify and cope with emotions when they feel when sad, angry, disappointed, or frustrated. The Happiness Skills don’t make those emotions disappear, but they do help better manage responses and return to a happier state of mind.
