TW: Suicide Prevention. Let’s keep talking.

As September draws to a close, the seasons change and the leaves begin to fall from the trees, we are reminded that nothing lasts forever. The seagulls who had once taken up residence next to my bedroom window seem to have finally moved on, and “the nights are fair drawing…

It’s international happiness at work week, and today we are examining the how and why of fostering a positive culture in the workplace. Everyone wants to be happy at work. It seems like such a simple thing. When in the right environment, happiness comes naturally to many of us. When…

Making happiness your priority

Last time, we talked about how goal setting can be an important tool for achieving our medium to long term goals, and the link to keeping a smile on our face. We also explored some timescales for our goals, and what kinds of goals fit those timescales. In this post…

Happy goals for a happy soul

Last Tuesday, we kicked off Happiness Happens month with What is Happiness? In that post, Tony summarised the three elements of happiness – short term emotion, longer term rational self-reflection and personal fulfilment.
