Singing Away the Blues

FULL DISCLOSURE: I had originally planned to write a blog about awe walks following my recent holiday in the French alps. I told Ilana and Sally I would write it over the weekend, with a plan to put pen to paper on Sunday afternoon. Around 2pm on Sunday afternoon, and full [...]

Imagination and Creation

Last Monday was a big day here at the Happynesshub. As our telly and happiness worlds draw closer together, we embarked on an ‘away-day’ to really knuckle down and refine some new ideas. The day was filled with productivity and some surprisingly solid achievements that will act as a great foundation [...]

The ‘Sunshine Vitamin’

Sitting down in Sally’s garden on Friday with the team after a busy week - drink in hand and helping myself to a significant portion of Brie - I felt content. More than content; I felt happy. What is it about al fresco dining? For me, it’s the amazing food (of [...]

Inner Archie

‘Muuuuuuum, can we get a puppy?’ This phrase is repeated most days in our household, more so since I had the pleasure of puppy-sitting my favourite non-human Lord Archie Archibald of Keizer! For those unaware, Archie (Sally’s gorgeous 12-week old black Labrador) has recently become the Happynesshub’s newest member and the [...]

Beyond Appearance

There are two things that have been taking up a lot of my mental energy recently: self-esteem (how we feel about ourselves and how we judge ourselves and our worth); and body image (the perception of a person’s physical appearance) - both of which are deeply connected. We seem to live [...]

Mind Reading

As some of you may know from my previous blogs, I struggle with anxiety. Most people’s immediate question when they find this out (including my therapist’s – and not wrongly) is, ‘Have you tried meditation?’ At which point I scoff and say ‘If you know me, you know I can’t meditate. I [...]

Purpose in the Workplace

Hello Hubbers! Let me introduce myself. I’m Nicky – I’m Ilana’s mum and I’ve previously been unwittingly referenced in her blogs (usually in relation to food…). Ilana and I spend a lot of time discussing the various ideas we come across in the world of happiness and wellbeing, and Ilana has [...]

Moments with Mum

Disclaimer: To my mum who will be reading this, I promise that this blog includes genuine sentiment and is not a brand new bribing tactic as I’m sure you’re currently suspecting. Throughout my life I’ve often heard the saying ‘hindsight’s a beautiful thing’ and there’s no denying that it certainly is. [...]

Nature-ally Happy

As we pass through spring with summer on our doorstep, I thought it was the perfect time to talk about nature and being outdoors. The other week, my friend recommended a Netflix film to me entitled Expedition Happiness. Filmmakers Selima ‘Mogli’ Taibi and Felix Starck, feeling as though they didn’t quite [...]
