Most people wouldn’t believe me if I said that I used to be medicated for depression, but I was! My “Happy Pills” were Citalopram… and my “Sleepy Pills” were Tamazopam. I hated taking pills. I felt weak. I felt like a failure. I felt like giving up at times, and by that I mean… completely …

Why Is Happiness So Elusive?


Many people talk of happiness! It’s almost as if it’s the latest craze! Actually… you know what? It is! For countless years people have suffered! As a society we’ve gotten more and more stressed, more and more refined in what we eat, faster and faster in what we do, fatter and fatter our size, bigger and bigger in what we drive and louder and louder in how we tell others how poor, stressed or unhappy we are!

Your Shortcut to Happiness – Inner Happiness

Some time ago I wrote a book for a dear friend of mine. She was outwardly incredibly bubbly, happy and the life of the party but was, on the inside, one of the most hurt souls I knew.

Having had personal experience as an outwardly bubbly person who was hurting deeply on the inside, I felt the missing ingredient for my friend was one that is missing in many people’s lives. The ingredient I’m referring to is happiness that comes from within, from yourself, from your own experience with life (rather than being happy when something good happens, for example).

Happy Food For Thought – WOW!


Leo Babauta, the author of the book “The Power of Less” and the guy behind the popular blog Zen Habits, recently published a post about how to be happy anytime.

I’m always happy with what I’m doing, because I don’t compare it to anything else, and instead pay close attention to the activity itself. I’m always happy with whoever I’m with, because I learn to see the perfection in every person. I’m always happy with where I am, because there’s no place on Earth that’s not a miracle.

I’m not always happy… thank goodness!


I’m not always happy. I’m not always on top of the world. I’m not always full of energy. This morning I felt tired, confused, stuck, annoyed, frustrated and I certainly wouldn’t have put myself in the “happy” category.

Being Passionate About What You Do = Happiness

I’m sitting here in my home office after an amazing coffee this morning. When I’m out having coffee, especially when I’m by myself, it’s often a reflective time and today I really got centered around the notion of being passionate about what you do and how that equates to happiness. For me I have two main “passions” in life – coffee and helping people. Easy! I just love both of them… and get an added buzz (pardon the pun) when I get to do both of them at the same time (Aaaahhhhh… My mind loves that blissful thought).

6 Happy Myths Dispelled!


1. Happy People are crazy or weird

This myth is a common thing to hear. Some people have also insinuated that to be happy one has to “be on something”. In fact, I can vividly remember walking down a concourse at university when I was studying and being told I looked crazy because I was walking with a massive smile on my face. I was as high as a kite on life… happy… but “crazy”? Studies have shown, however, that happy people are actually more socially accepted than non-happy people and rate higher on like-ability scales also.

Music Makes The World Happy

It doesn’t matter what mood you’re in, how crap your day has been, how much your kids have annoyed you, boss has pressured you… grab your itouch, your iphone, your icomputer, your idon’tknowanyothernamesofmusicplayers then dial up your favorite song, sit back and listen, even just to one song. Guaranteed to increase in happiness.

Now, we’re all different so what floats your boat may sink someone else’s faster than they can say “O.M.G. Are you seriously listening to Celine Dion?” (admittedly, a comment that I’ve heard a few times in my life). Seriously though, even the heavy metal, hard core, people wearing black t-shirts screaming words into a microphone will juice someone and bring a massive buzz of happiness…
