Virtual Session
Dates Offered Time Location
June 24, 2020 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Virtual Classroom via Zoom


The global pandemic has affected all aspects of life. We’ve had to adjust how we work, how we socialize, and how we spend our time. Is it realistic to find happiness amid these trying times? What are some of the most effective ways to take care of our mental health at a time like this? Tim Bono, a lecturer in Psychological & Brain Sciences, will offer perspectives on these topics, drawn from his popular course on the Science of Happiness. 

  • How have you incorporated self-care into your daily life during these trying times?
  • Have you picked up a new hobby, started a new workout program, or maybe attended a virtual happy hour?

We invite registrants to share their self-care routines – some of them will be included throughout the session. Please email your stories and photos to Shirley Ikemeier  by June 22nd for Tim to use in his live webinar presentation.  Please use the subject title: Happiness 101 Submission. 

Date:  Wednesday, June 24
Time:  11:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Facilitator:  Tim Bono, Assistant Dean in Arts & Sciences and a lecturer in psychological and brain sciences
