With infectious enthusiasm, heartfelt authenticity, and a “what works” authority, Pasricha draws on the latest research in happiness to increase individual performance and create a more positive and productive home.
PLASP Child Care Services
As a father with a one year old and three year old, he will share personal stories and advice on how parents need to own and manage their own positive mindset in order to positively affect their children. While very much still growing as a father, his theories are similar to oxygen masks on airplanes. What do they say when reviewing the safety features? "You must put your mask on first before attending to your child." It's the same with our happiness. Self care comes first and a 20-minute priming exercise once a day (after the kids are in bed works well) can improve our productivity, energy, and creativity with our children.
Pasricha travels all over the globe sharing messages on happiness to Fortune 500 companies, schools, and non-profits. In the past few years, he has spoken to over 200,000 people at hundreds of events, making him one of the world's most sought-after speakers. His first book, The Book of Awesome, is a runaway #1 international bestseller with millions of copies sold. His new book, The Happiness Equation: Want Nothing + Do Anything = Have Everything (also an international bestseller), provides step-by-step guidelines to illustrate how to apply a unique set of principles to improving and managing everything—your time, your career, your bottom line, your relationships and ultimately, of course, your happiness.
