Have you evert wished you had a couple of "go-to" things you could do to calm your body and mind when you are stressed and give yourself a little boost when you are feeling flat?
I have. I can remember when I first started studying psychology, I knew therapy was effective for making people feel better but I wanted something quick and easy I could do on the fly. Sometimes I just felt a bit out of sorts and wanted to shake myself out of it - but the things I thought of didn't really work.
Fast forward 25 years and there are a few things I have picked up along the way that I now keep in my back pocket for just such a moment - when I want to bust my stress or boost my mood. Because I have done them over and over I know they work (and research shows they do too). And I can pick the right one for the job. So I decided to put all my favourites in this fun little course so that other people could have a tool kit of portable, quick and easy to remember things they could do anywhere, anytime.
Welcome to 7 days to Happiness!
In this course I'll take you through 7 quick and easy, proven and portable exercises that bust your stress and boost your mood. My name is Kellie Edwards and I'm a Psychologist, Mindfulness Teacher and I've been a passionate champion of happy lives for over 25 years.
Our Brain's Negativity Bias Can Change!
Our mind can be our best friend or our worst enemy. As humans, our brains tend toward a negativity bias. You might notice that the tiniest bad thing can ruin your entire day, even if everything else about that day has been wonderful. That's because our brains are a very old design, wired for survival - so we focus on the bad, quickly forgetting the good!
Thanks to exciting research, we now know that we have the ability to rewire our brains. We used to think that the way we were was fixed and unchanging, and that we were stuck with the brains we have once we reached adulthood. But we now know that our brains change as a result of experience, right up until the day we die.

7 days to Happiness is a week long experiment where you get to try one power-packed stress buster and mood booster each day and by the end of the week not only will you feel better and be on your way to rewiring your brain for happiness for the rest of your life - you will also have a tool kit of 7 short and sweet easy things that you can do anywhere, anytime you want to!

I am a Psychologist, Mindfulness Teacher and Well-Being Coach
What makes the difference between a happy life and an unhappy life? What do happy and wholehearted people do differently to the rest? I have spent over 25 years of my professional and personal life exploring and testing the science of well-being and have developed several online mindfulness based well-being and parenting programs based on the results. I also take on a small number of individual clients internationally over Skype and in my home town of Melbourne, Australia.
I interview and work with many international experts including Tara Brach, Rick Hanson, Elisha Goldstein, Barbara Fredrickson, Sarah Napthali and more. I have completed the renown Cultivating Compassion Training with Stanford University, the Educators Training Program with Mindful Schools, Meditation Teacher Training with Gawler Institute and am the National Secretary of the Buddhism and Psychology Interest Group with the Australian Psychological Society. I have developed Mindful Parenting Programs for local government and private health organisations, facilitatated leadership development and change management programs for corporate clients - and I can't wait to work with you too.
I draw from Positive Psychology and the Neuroscience of Flourishing, and with my unique combination of skills and my own parenting and life experience, work passionately with people to help them thrive. I write regularly about Happiness, Mindfulness and Parenting for The Huffington Post. Everyday Mindfulness, BubHub and PsychCentral amongst others.
