Sleeptember

You may not have known this, but the month of September has been coined ‘Sleeptember’ – an awareness month looking at how you can achieve better sleep and what benefits good sleep can bring. Personally, I find I excel at sleeping… it is something I love almost as much as food [...]

Finding a Way to Happy

For me, much of the past year was quite awful – I had given up on a lot of things and was down in a dark place by myself. However, things started to brighten up around May when I went to GAFX (the Games, Animation and Visual FX Conference that was [...]

Imagination and Creation

Last Monday was a big day here at the Happynesshub. As our telly and happiness worlds draw closer together, we embarked on an ‘away-day’ to really knuckle down and refine some new ideas.
