Healthy Concord, in partnership with Concord Youth Services Coordinator, will host a community book read on September 8th at the Harvey Wheeler Community Center. The book, The Happiness Advantage, by Harvard researcher Shawn Achor, proposes a different route to success. In his book he describes how a positive mindset allows our brains to become more engaged, creative, motivated, energetic, resilient, and productive at work and school. This discovery is supported by rigorous research in psychology and neuroscience, management studies, and the bottom lines of organizations around the globe.
The book discussion will be facilitated by Colleen Meaney, CCHS Assistant Principal, and a CCHS student. Books are available at the Concord Public Library and through the Concord Bookshop.
