About Sallyann Keizer

Hello! I’m Sally, Head of Happyness, as the team calls me. Silly title, I know, but it makes everyone giggle including me, so we’ve stuck with it. I’m the founder of the Happynesshub and I am passionate about our work. I’ve spent years reading about happiness and emotional wellbeing, putting the research into practice, and trying to navigate the ups and downs of life’s rollercoaster ride. My dream is to share the work and the love, for each of of us to fulfil our individual potential, and to ultimately make the world a happier place.

From Deep Within

It has been a week of lunches, meetings, coffees and conversation. And as each day has passed I have wondered at the diversity of people I have been sharing time with – from an old uni friend who I haven’t seen in years, to a new that I simply started talking [...]

Daily Distractions

I am having lunch with a friend and I am running late. I’ve written multiple emails on my phone on the tube in, used it to navigate myself to the coffee bar, sent a last-minute text from the loo before I go to the table - and as I sit down, [...]

My Archie

On paper it was not a good idea, as many a friend advised. A dog? Really? How will that work out in your high-fuelled, traveling, work-filled life? Of course there were more who thought it a good idea. I’d grown up with multiple Labs, I adore dogs, oh and I’m a [...]

Movies and Moments

It’s 8pm on Wednesday and I have just listened to over 2 hours of Jeff Foster talking ‘live’ on his streamed online course. Now many of you may think this is a strange way to spend a weekday evening, staring at a young man with a blank white screen behind him, [...]

A Day with Jeff

It’s Friday night… the candles are glimmering, the water is steaming and my bath is making headway in doing the much-needed job – saving me from my week’s exhaustion and self-questioning. Another seven days of full-on work pressures, personal challenges and the usual navigation of life’s ups and downs in today’s [...]

The Silent Man

Silence is Bliss. It’s not a phrase that’s greatly resonated with me throughout my life. I grew up in a busy and bustling house, surrounded by family, 7 dogs and multiple other two and four-legged friends. Silence was rare, and other than when I was revising and wanted real quiet (much [...]

Here to Help

I think human beings are innately kind. Indeed, research tells of toddlers readily helping others to achieve their goals... the altruism within them is a natural instinct. So why is it that we hear of such atrocities around the word? And headlines shout that we in Western society nowadays are ‘all [...]

Don’t Spill Your Coca-Cola

Ilana and I are sitting in the car on the way to Swansea… we’ve had a very ‘challenging’ week (as one of my good friends would say!). In fact, the way I’ve been describing my week is ‘horrid, horrendous, horrid’. My mum fractured her pelvis (yet again!), and has been in [...]

The Archie Moment

We’ve coined a new phrase at Happynesshub HQ – it’s called The Archie Moment. And it stems from my meeting the new love of my life, little Archie Archibald, as many of you will have read in last week’s blog. Archie (my new Black Lab, 7 weeks old, arriving at my house [...]
