Why invest in happiness?

Happier individuals are more…

Investing in your happiness can have a profound impact on your life, especially in today’s world where stress, anxiety, burnout and loneliness are all too common. 

And yet, we are not taught in any school, university or at work how to build habits that can enable us to be happier.

Research has shown that building practices to hardwire for happiness can have significant benefits, making it a wise investment in your future.

We live In a World of Abundance and Prosperity.

Today’s technology brings us closer and keeps us more connected than ever before, while advances in modern medicine help to protect and heal us. And yet, so many of us trudge through life feeling heavy, empty, alone and stressed out.

Unfortunately, our brains are maladapted to our highly volatile and uncertain times. In the face of accelerating change, we find ourselves chronically anxious, triggered by even the smallest stresses.

I invite you to learn more about 9 scientifically proven and secular practices that have the power to rewire our brains for happiness. This will allow you to truly thrive rather than just survive in the modern world.

Here you can find out how to integrate these practices into your life through my upcoming book Hardwired For Happiness, the Happiness Squad blog, and by joining our Happiness Squad community.
