Choose happiness

I’m a big fan of Dr Timothy Sharp, also known as Dr Happy, a leader in the field of positive psychology and founder of The Happiness Institute. I recently discovered that we’ve also run concurrent sessions at the Woodford Folk Festival over the past few years, but have yet to meet.

In any case, I just came across an interview with Dr Sharp on the new healthyMEtv: it’s great! In it he explains the foundations for cultivating happiness – all of which are really quite simple and very much achievable. What I also like about his approach is that it acknowledges the full range of emotions we experience – happy, sad, angry, etc. They all have a place.

What do you reckon? Are you a Dr Happy fan too?
