It’s been a very busy week here at Happynesshub HQ - although I feel like I’ve been saying that almost every week since Christmas! However, as many of you will know the culture at Sixth Sense, the Happynesshub and Bow-Wowza is so important to me, on an equal footing with the work we [...]

This week, Tim D drew my attention to a little gem that featured on the evening news. A recent study conducted by Travelodge has indicated that the pandemic has in fact increased levels of kindness!

As ever, the Happynesshub tools are of great comfort to me - in [...]

Weekly Words 9th January

This year, one thing I want to happen is to practise more silence, and more listening. I don’t necessarily mean talking less (that’s unlikely to happen), but rather I want to experience more silence, and listen better.

Weekly Words 19th December

I see things that I look forward to in life such as birthdays, holidays and of course Christmas, as bubbles. I try so hard to make sure they don’t pop, doing everything in my power to protect them, that it causes me anxiety. This anxiety manifests in many ways, from OCD kicking in, which [...]

As I write this blog, I’m listening to Taylor Swift. This is not unusual for me - I’m a big-time ‘Swiftie’, and listened to 42 hours of ‘Tay Tay’ in 2019 alone, so it’s fair to say I’m QUITE familiar with her catalogue. The music in my ears right now, though, is new [...]

One of the blessings of the pandemic has been the incredible range of speakers that my friend Mark at Action for Happiness has had the time and opportunity to interview. I attend these on an almost weekly basis, and this week’s brought the wonderful Tal Ben-Shahar onto my screen. Whilst I miss attending [...]

Weekly Words 28th November

One particularly uplifting hour I enjoyed this week was spent watching a discussion between the fabulous Dan Goleman, a renowned researcher into emotional intelligence, and our friend Mark Williamson of Action for Happiness. Mark began by asking ‘what exactly is emotional intelligence?’. In a nutshell, Dan explained, it can be summed up in [...]
