Today we’re checking out the topic of: “How To Be Happy?”
Sometimes there are things in your life that sporadically make you happy right? Like, seeing “so and so” for an couple of hours or listening to that song that reminds you of a happy time … but imagine if you could actually be happier… more often.. and for longer periods.. like always maybe? Would THAT be cool???Continue Reading »
Ha ha ha… I have no idea what lollipops have to do with this article BUT… I swear this has something to do with pink shoes and being happy! I went shoe shopping in the weekend with my man… which, honestly, is typically more entertaining than watching the All Blacks (New Zealand’s Rugby Team) kick the butts of the Wallabies (Australia’s Rugby Team) – A big call I know!Continue Reading »

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.
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.Continue Reading »

Hey everyone. We hope you’re having a very happy day.
We’re getting to all corners of the globe now with our happiness infection… Russia, USA, New Zealand, Canada, Brazil, Bolivia, Peru, Niger, Spain, United Kingdom… to name but a few. With that said, we know that it’s Father’s Day out there for some of you and we wanted to add a little happiness into some of the dad’s lives out there.
Here’s a little something about happiness and fatherhood. Studies now show that:Continue Reading »
It’s been a day since I was home alone in the middle of a 5.7 and 6.3 earthquake in my hometown Christchurch, New Zealand. It’s also 4 months after an unforgettable 6.3 quake in February 22 this year, an event which took many lives.
That February quake was a shocker! So, for those miles and miles away, unable to comprehend… imagine this. It’s early afternoon. I’d just finished a business call via Skype and was about to head into town to my favourite cafe to coach a client. Then BANG! The house started shaking incredibly violently, the power immediately went out,Continue Reading »

There’s a lovely man I call “Brucy” at my local café. He’s one of those guys that you just fall in love with from the moment you first meet him. He’s so caring and attentive, remembers all his customer’s names laughs his way through his day. As I type this blog he’s cruising around, delivering exquisite coffees to customers each of whom, after having communicated with him, are left with a massive grinner.
I just love love love bringing joy to the world in every possible way. Making people smile from ear to ear, laugh till they cry or giggle till they fart and this is so ingrained in me that it’s just part of who I am now. Sometimes after I’ve cracked someone up, or helped them turn a frown upside down I’ll find myself thinking, “Shivers that was pretty cool! Where’s my next person to fill with happiness?” Now, I’m not saying this to royally blow my own head up … I’m saying this to show you how so very easy it is to bring joy to the world.Continue Reading »
Sometimes the concept of connecting with someone may scare you! Heck, I remember vividly wanting to connect with someone… so badly… but because I’d felt so hurt in the past by this person… I just didn’t know what to do. Need for connection was being massively sidelined by this crazy desire to protect myself.Continue Reading »
