Is Feeling Happy a Skill that can be learnt?

Did you know happiness is a skill that can be learnt? Just like riding a bike or learning to bake a cake… practice makes perfect!

Earlier this year I became a Certified Happiness Trainer after taking a course with the Museum of Happiness. I have always been interested in the idea of happiness and fun and how I can create more of these things in my everyday life, even on the shitty days where everything goes wrong!

Since taking the course and practicing a few of the techniques, I can honestly say my general everyday happiness has increased massively!

Happiness is a bit like success in that they are ‘feelings’ you will never reach if you’re constantly chasing them. You might have a point you want to reach that you think will make you successful or happy, but will you ever reach it?!

Instead it’s about realising what you have right now, and what you can do right now to make you feel happier, more successful or to stay positive no matter what.

Our minds are crazy things that we have more ability to control than we think! I promise!

I am now on a mission to share all my learnings with the world to make more people feel good, every day!

I am currently busy beavering away on my new business branding, and have lots of exciting things in store including a podcast and bookclub!

I believe happiness leads to better productivity and contentment in life and is a skill that can be learnt. I’m on on a mission to make more of you realise this!

To kick things off today I launched my first happiness training evening and I hope you can make it!

I’m keeping things local with my first training in Matlock, the town in Derbyshire where I live, and I am Sooo excited to be partnering with Radio Free Matlock on a post training Feel Good Tunes and networking event too!

  1. What an interesting post! Firstly, Happiness museum?! That sounds awesome!
    I completely believe that if you are a positive person you will attract more positivity and happiness and vice versa for if you’re more negative. So I certainly think you can practice happiness 🙂
