A couple of years ago I started a course on edX, which is a learning platform providing for free (you pay for the certification only) high quality courses from first class universities. In a few words, it is a MOOC (Massive Open Online Courses) provider.

What is interesting is that the course I followed is called the Science of Happiness and is provided by Berkeley.

Personally, this course gave me fundamentals insights on what it means to be happy, and how happiness actually works, from a physical (brain and body) and psychological (mental) side. I also learned how to consider happiness in the different part of my life: at home, at work, with my friends, when helping people, when blogging 😉

And finally, when doing this course, one excellent quiz was provided, coming from the Greater Good Magazine, which provides “science-based insights for a meaningful life”

The quiz is available here and I actually think that it can be useful if you want to know where you are according to mindfulness practices. Some questions really foster self-reflection and it is only a 10 minutes quiz (25 short questions).

In terms of references, the quiz has been developed by researchers at La Salle University and Drexel University, led by psychology professor Lee Ann Cardaciotto.

And at the end, you will receive a couple of insights on how you can improve your practice of mindfulness!

I hope you will enjoy it, whether you take the quiz, the course, or both, and I will be happy to share with you after in the comment area.

An excellent article to summarize the results of this course is also available here on the Greater Good Science Center website.
