About TimD

I’m Tim and I shoot and edit some of the films for the Happynesshub. I’ve known our Head of Happyness for many, many years and have been involved in loads of programme ideas and projects about the subject. But ultimately, I think whist I’ve been filming and editing about this lots, I’m not sure if I’ve truly looked at what makes me happy…

Colour me Happy

It’s Wednesday night and I’m sat at home looking around the room thinking maybe, after 4 years, it’s time for a fresh lick of paint. You see, when I renovated my house I decided to do the simple thing and paint everything the same colour – Natural Hessian. Ever since I’ve [...]

Having a Healthy Smartphone Relationship

Friendships at 40

A few weeks ago I reached the big 4-0. I know, I know, I don’t look a day over 25 (or so I like to tell myself). So, in preparation for the big day I went through the usual dilemma of what I should do. Having a birthday in February does [...]

Friends – The Key to Happiness

A couple of weeks ago I, and a group of my friends, took a trip to the Emerald Isle to celebrate one of us turning the big 4-0. We’ve known each other for nearly 30 years (I know what you’re thinking – how can that be possible? You don’t look like [...]

Solving the Happiness Equation

I do love a good equation. It’s probably down to my science background, having studied Chemistry at university. It often helps to understand and explain complex things. Recently whilst looking on the Internet I came across Mo Gawdat, a Chief Business Officer for Google, who claims to have come up with [...]

The Big Picture About The Small Stuff

A few weeks ago I was chatting to friends who have recently moved to Stockholm and they were telling me that as a country, how much they value the importance of family, health and wellbeing. For example, they told me if they work late it’s seen as a negative – either [...]

Duvet Downtime – Or Not!

  Every year I look forward to the Easter break. It’s 4 days away from work but there is always a decision to be made. Do I fill my time keeping active, seeing friends and family and making use of my days off? Or should I just relax, chill and have a duvet [...]
