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.

How are you feeling as we turn out of January and into the next month? I can’t say I’ll be too sad to see the back of January – it’s been quite a difficult month in many ways, and while I’m sure there are challenging times anew to come, there are lots of [...]
