CT University introduces course on ‘happiness’ as curriculum

Ludhiana, June 13

CT University, under its Centre for Happiness and Well-Being, introduced “happiness” as a curricular subject for students. The happiness centre is one of its kind platforms to support, integrate, execute and align happiness in students’ life.

The curriculum includes psychology, definition of happiness, how and why to be happy, positivity, gratitude, maintenance of health, loving ourselves and various other factors in a 15-week programme.

Amrit Kalsi, HoD, Centre for Happiness and Well-Being, said: “A team of eight experts have prepared the curriculum oriented to happiness. The schedule even includes various individual and group activities based on bringing out positivity in a student’s life. We are not only focusing on mental happiness but also physical because if one’s body is healthy and happy, only then mental peace is achieved.”

Students are being stressed out from all hardship they face during this stage. They are not just burdened by studies but also by pressure from peer groups and family.

Vice-Chancellor Harsh Sadawarti said: “The basic idea of introducing happiness and morality at this stage for students is that they could be brought on a path that leads to a purposeful life ahead. This is a stage where they can be influenced by negative decisions and end up ruining their lives, whereas 55-minutes a day motivation can bring out the required focus in them. Happiness is a state of mind. It means we are physically, mentally and emotionally relaxed.”
