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!

THE Most Amazing Run – The DIRTY TRUTH


Ok ok. I know… If I was a person who just didn’t like running and I read “THE Most Amazing Run” in a heading, l’d be like “ what the heck?” Really????? Like… Really… how can running be amazing? How can something that’s sweaty, hard and that makes me puff like the magic dragon be AMAZING? Come on Liz. Get real, right?

Pink Shoes, Lollipops and Being Happy

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!

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.

Liz Benny: On Playing Like A Kid


Playing like a kid fills me with joy and happiness. So I find it strange that adults seem to have forgotten how to play. Now, I’m not blowing my own horn, but I’m totally into playing. I’ll play in business meetings. I’ll play whilst running or in cafes. I’ll play and pull funny faces until the cows come home. I find that people often comment about my playful nature, noticing how it brings joy to others, how it brings people together and/or how it creates reasons for la…

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…
