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 [...]

Back to School

I always love going back to my old school. I feel lucky to have been given such a rounded and varied education and I never fail to wonder at the kindness and politeness of the girls when I return. Yet our visit this week was particularly special. I had been invited [...]

January Digital Detox

January is over, yippee! Never a favourite of mine - despite trying to manage the lack of light, the tendency for the TV world to be slow-moving this month, and my post-Christmas despondency – I always long for February to arrive (not the attitude from the Head of Happyness, I hear [...]

My Happy Diary

I haven’t written a blog in quite some time now. Upon reflection, I think it’s because I haven’t felt ‘happy enough’ to write one. I’ve often thought that if I’m not zinging with happiness, I’d be doing an injustice to all you Hubbers. It’s only now, following the new year - [...]

Finding Your Flow

January has landed…in full force! It’s cold outside, seemingly permanently dark, and summer seems oh so far away. Many of us at this time of year are exhausted from the Christmas period, and it becomes difficult to see ourselves escaping from the repetitive cycle of work, eat and sleep…summer holidays are [...]

The Importance of Being Alone

A few weeks ago, I read an article in Lena Denham and Jenni Konner’s online magazine Lenny. The article was titled ‘Women Are Supposed to Give Until They Die’ (read here) and discussed how important alone time is for women as well as men. This got me thinking… I have gone [...]

Cellular Positivity

This week I learned some science! Elizabeth Blackburn, the Nobel laureate was my teacher and she taught me all about the part of our chromosomes named telomeres. Now, I must put a little disclaimer in here – unfortunately, my science lesson was not in person, and was actually learned through Elizabeth’s [...]

The City of Angels: Lessons Learnt

I needed a tube of ointment. On prescription. I was finding LA daunting – big, brash and a far cry from my little home-town in the UK. Still, the plus would be everything was open 24 hours here and I’d have it in a jiffy. $140 later (and 4 minutes with [...]

Runny eggs and the Now

Time – it’s the strangest thing. They always say as you get older, time passes more quickly, and I often smile and think I have turned into my grandma as I find myself repeating, “Where has the year gone, it’s almost Christmas?!”. It’s the age old thing that when you’re having [...]

Digital Dieting

It’s Tuesday afternoon. Tim D and I are in the Happynesshub office and the only audible sound is the constant buzzing of my phone on the glass desk; the girls’ WhatsApp group is on full form. With each vibration I can feel my mind drifting further and further from my work [...]
