About The Webinar:
With each passing day, people are suffering the fear of losing a close one, the uncertainty of maintaining jobs, overwhelming feelings of loneliness, the strain of looking after the family, watching relationships slowly crumble, and even with stretches of time at disposal, having no motivation to be productive.
But even in such unsettling times, there is always a silver lining awaiting to be found and recognised. You just need to be looking for it and you might just stumble upon the key to happiness.
Watch Raj Raghunathan with his interesting and innovative perspective on happiness as he showcases celebrating the good in the face of inevitable loss and pain, connecting with others even with vast distances, being constructive and creative with work, discovering hobbies-old and new, and strengthening familial bonds.
