It’s never too early or too late to learn how to be happier. Whether you’re aged 3, 23 or 103, we’ve teamed up with our furry friends from Sesame Street to bring you fun and fact-based tips to improve the wellbeing of you and the people around you.

We begin with Abby Cadabby – a fairy who isn’t having such a great day. Her usual spells can’t rid her of her “grumpies,” so Dr. Laurie teaches her the magical effect that being grateful for who and what is around you can have on your mood.   

(Sesame Workshop is a non-profit organization with a mission to help kids grow smarter, stronger, and kinder. The work they do is funded by donations big and small – so if you want to become a part of their important work to improve children’s emotional well-being, then visit them here.)
