But a follow-up study found happiness benefits faded unless they continued to practice what they learned—such as gratitude, exercise, meditation or journaling. In short, happiness can be learned, but you have to work at it. Among the pointers in the course are talking to strangers makes us happier, even if its natural to shy away from such encounters.
