Your path to stress relief and happiness
"When you are happy, you want everyone else to be happy"
The My Serenity Project
Val Thorens is THE ski resort that wants to make you happy! Going on holiday is all about soaking up the atmosphere, experiencing new things, and sharing moments with your loved ones – so it’s important to be brimming with positive energy and make precious memories. That’s the thinking behind the My Serenity method – encouraging holiday-makers to shrug off stress and embrace happiness.
A meeting that sparked an idea
The My Serenity project is the brainchild of Dr Philippe Rodet, an expert in happiness and stress management. The idea came to him after a holiday in Val Thorens, where he saw that all the right ingredients were in place to relieve stress and achieve a state of wellness.
The former A&E doctor now delivers speeches in Val Thorens every season, and dispenses invaluable advice in the My Serenity guide, which is distributed free of charge in shops and accommodation across the resort.
The My Serenity Guide
The My Serenity Guide, launched in November 2017, is designed to bring some serenity into your life. Co-authored by Dr Philippe Rodet, it sets out a proven method to help you adopt wellness habits and protect you and your loved ones from stress.
Free copies of the guide are available throughout the resort.
Meet the resort's Happiness Providers
We’ve taken things a step further by creating the My Val Thorens Serenity mark, awarded to products, activities, attitudes and experiences that help lower your stress and guide you towards a state of lasting serenity.
Share a fortifying drink with friends and tuck into a home-made cake that’s rich in antioxidants. Admire the Aiguille de Péclet, watch the snow falling outside your window, embrace the moment and recharge your batteries.
Every Happiness Provider is different – whether it’s an activity, a gesture, a snug location, a delicious meal or a drink that’s packed with antioxidants. But they all have one thing in common: they’re here to make you happy.
