Some folks asked how they can get to know more about my friend's program to help people boost their emotional state. Remember my post on The Happiness Gym?

His name is Al Cannistraro. He's a former government employee who discovered Martin Seligman's "positive psychology" movement, and promptly enlisted. And now he coaches individuals online, in person, and by phone, on what they can do to be happier in life.

"Be happier." Not go around grinning like an ape, but feel better about oneself and one's prospects. Pay more attention to the good things of life, and feel grateful for them. Be more involved, seek out and enjoy better relationships. Squeeze more juice out of every day's orange. Or tomato. Or prune or whatever fruit gives you pleasure.

Al is currently offering a free mini-course, to get better acquainted with the topic. I am taking it, and it is great. It teaches you a lot about your own feelings and why you feel the way you do. And it points out some wonderful and easy instructions for how to do better and feel better every day.

If you want to try the free mini-course, do this. (Or do this. Do not do this, as his headline suggests -- cuz the dang link don't work.)

Hey, look at me -- a month after doing this, I'm doing modern freaken dance.
