Some prof in Harvard teaches “believing” in God to be “happy”?

I got a WhatsApp chain letter.

The content is that some Harvard Professor taught this:

🚩Tip 1. * Thank God for everything you have: * Write down 10 things
you have in your life that give you happiness. Focus on the good
things!

🚩Tip 2. * Practice physical activity * Experts say exercising helps
improve mood. 30 minutes of exercise is the best antidote against
sadness and stress.

🚩Tip 3. * Breakfast: * Some people miss breakfast for lack of time or
not to get fat. Studies show that breakfast gives you energy, helps
you think and perform your activities successfully.

🚩Tip 4. * Assertive *: Ask what you want and say what you think.
Being assertive helps improve your self-esteem. Being left and
remaining silent creates sadness and hopelessness.

🚩Tip 5. * Spend your money on experiences..a study found that 75% of
people felt happier when they invested their money in travel, courses
and classes; While only the rest said they felt happier when buying
things.

🚩Tip 6. * Face your challenges *: Studies show that the more you
postpone something, the more anxiety and tension you generate. Write
short weekly lists of tasks and complete them.

🚩Tip 7. * Put everywhere nice memories, phrases and photos of your
loved ones *: Fill your fridge, your computer, your desk, your room,
YOUR LIFE of beautiful memories.

🚩Tip 8. * Always greet and be nice to other people *: More than 100
inquiries state that just smiling changes the mood.

🚩Tip 9. * Wear comfortable shoes *: If your feet hurt you, you become
moody, says Dr. Keinth Wapner, President of the American Orthopedics
Association.

🚩Tip 10. * Take care of your posture *: Walk straight with your
shoulders slightly backwards and the front view helps to maintain a
good mood.

🚩Tip 11. * Listen to music * (Praise God): It is proven that
listening to music awakens you to sing, this will make your life
happy.

🚩Tip 12. * What you eat has an impact on your mood *:- Do not skip
meals, eat lightly every 3 to 4 hours and keep glucose levels stable.-
Avoid excess white flour and sugar.- Eat everything! Healthy- Vary
your food.

🚩Tip 13. * Take care of yourself and feel attractive *:70% of people
say they feel happier when they think they look good.

🚩Tip 14. * Fervently believe in God *: With him nothing is
impossible! Happiness is like a remote control, we lose it every time,
we go crazy looking for it and many times without knowing it, we are
sitting on top of it …

I think the content is a bit too “Christian” for me.

Asking Google where it comes from, I found this:

Who is Ben-Shahar, and what does he actually teach?

Is there a UX term for a “happy state”?

A “happy state” is a bit like an empty state but occurs when the user successfully completes a task or likewise.

Is there a coined term for this kind of screen?

Example (this source names it a “congrats page” but that doesn’t sound right as it doesn’t speak for other kinds of “happy states”):

My last novel had changed/had been changed three times before I was happy with it

I sometimes see cases that it is possible to use both of them, but does it work in this example?

she was happy to see her mother

a. She was happy to see her mother.

Does this mean

a1. She was happy when she saw her mother.

a2. She was happy that she’d seen her mother.

a3. She was happy that she was going to see her mother.

?

=========================

b. She was happy to win the contest.

Does this mean

b1. She was happy when she was winning the contest.

b2. She was happy that she had won the contest.

b3. She was happy that she was going to win the contest.

?

It seems to me that (a) corresponds to (a1), and (b) corresponds to (b2). But maybe there’s some ambiguity in these sentences.

I wonder if (b) could be said of her state of mind long after the contest was over.

Would this one work?

c. Three years after the contest, she was still happy to win it.

Many thanks
