YourOneLife app founder Yogi Kochhar speaks at a college event about the value of happiness

Through the app, Yogi Kochhar is tokenising happiness on a blockchain



Apeejay Institute of Mass Communication (AIMC) organised an online session with Yogi Kochhar, founder, YourOneLife (YOL), a happiness app. He is an author and adventurist with over 30 years of experience in various roles, spanning continents like UK, US, and Asia.

Through the YOL app, Yogi Kochhar is tokenising happiness on a blockchain. The YOL app is recognised by the United Nations and has been awarded by the British Parliament. It has also been approved by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE). Through the app, students can earn NFTs as they learn while enhancing their EQ and IQ.

During the session with Apeejay students, Yogi Kochhar shared a PPT and explained the value of true happiness and how to keep stress at bay. Arushi Tomar, a PGDM student from Advertising and Marketing Communications, AIMC, said, “The event was amazing. We were all honoured to have Yogi Kochhar sir. He counselled us about happiness, which was a great experience. He emphasised how we can be happy no matter the circumstances.  He also told us about cryptocurrency and blockchain and how we can earn from it.”

Gowher Farooq, another student from the Television and Radio Journalism and Production department, added, “Unlike Facebook or Twitter, the YOL app gives back something to the users, based on their happiness rankings. We were told we would get one cent or two cents for posting on the platform.

“From the session, I learned the importance of happiness. I also learned the power of saying ‘no’ to certain things in life but not having any regrets about it.”

Through the event, students were given insight into their feelings, which eventually impacted their behaviour. Khushboo Gupta from Advertising and Marketing Communications stated, “The event was about being observant of how our minds work and how normal day-to-day activities, including social media, impact our lives. We were enlightened about how our internal juices flow. The environment we live in affects the way we feel, and those feelings combined together make up our personality and way of being.”

Talking about the YOL app, she added, “By analysing our posts, the YOL app keeps track of what aspect of life we are focusing on—whether we are focused on being more sociable or focusing on our academics, and so on.”
