Psychologist and Author: “How to be Miserable: 40 Strategies You Already Use”


We spend most of our lives trying to feel happier, and still we often discover that fulfillment lies out of reach. What if we did the opposite? Dr Randy Paterson invites us to consider the unthinkable: If your goal was to feel worse rather than better, what would you do? How would you live your life? In the process we might discover the choices we are already making that cause the difficult challenge of existence to be even less fun than it needs to be. Based on his book How to be Miserable: 40 Strategies You Already Use, this talk promises to be an unexpectedly funny and insightful trip to the dark side.

$75 per person, $600 table of eight  |  Luncheon, Speaker, Book Signing*

Creating a platform to discuss healthy living and topics of interest to the women of Waterloo Region is a true investment in the health of our community.
