Unlock your full potential by hardwiring yourself and your organizations for happiness


Live with more health, happiness, love, and meaning


At Happiness Squad, it is our mission to enable a billion people to live happier and healthier lives filled with more love and meaning. We strive to achieve our mission by supporting individuals and organizations to build habits around the 9 practices that are proven to rewire our brains for Happiness versus our evolutionary wiring for Fear. By integrating these practices into how they work and live daily, we can support them in unlocking their best selves as they master their inner worlds and elevating their consciousness (Knowing, Doing, Being)

We have developed tailored offerings for supporting both individuals and organizations who are excited to embark on this journey to be happier and create cultures that enable human flourishing.




Learn & Chose the 6-9 Micro-Practices that  work best for you:

Today, most executive teams are faced with the impossible task of delivering targets that are higher than ever—and this, against operating conditions that are also harder than ever. What’s more, an increasingly growing number of employees are exhausted, stressed, and burnt out, which has created an incredibly tough-to-navigate environment across the board.
