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.

Weekly Words 6th June

I write to you following a week that I’m sure has been full of a mixture of strong emotions for many, and particularly heart-wrenching for those in the US. For me it’s been a rollercoaster of feelings – yet my head and heart have continually returned to a space of love. As events [...]

A New Found Way of Learning – A Week in Isolation With Children

It's been a surreal few weeks to say the least. If you have a young family your routine has gone from frantically rushing around to get everyone ready to ultimate lockdown and home schooling. My husband and I are lucky enough to be able to work from home and we were [...]

Gratitude: Thinking Out Loud

After months and months of being poorly on and off, large bouts of time spent in bed and isolated at home, and feeling challenged daily both mentally and physically, I finally started to emerge a few weeks ago feeling stronger, fitter and healthier than I had in a good, long time. [...]

There was a time when the world and I had a disconnect (it still happens every now and again and I’m sure that this is something we all feel at certain times, to a greater or lesser extent). At its worst, mine occurred following many years of physical pain causing me [...]

Share in the Community

Community spirit varies greatly, from country to culture, areas to individuals. And it differs across generations and ages. One thought that remains universal, however, is that we human beings are social beings (whatever our personality type) and that we are born to support each other and connect. Yet all too often [...]

21-Days of Malaysian Happiness

Malaysia was the first port of call on my month long travelling sabbatical. 6 days at a retreat to energise, re-connect and rest - and then Asia here I come! At least that was the plan. More than 3 weeks later, I am in the skies above Singapore, leaving the lovely [...]

Millefeuille Musings – Part 2

A while ago I wrote a blog about Millefeuile– or more to the point about how layers of stress can build up and it’s these multiple layers that make life hard to cope with. I then shared how kind friends and family had helped me take these stresses away, slowly and [...]
