Founder’s Story

Why The Happiness

Five years ago, I had the opportunity to truly immerse myself in the topic of happiness, specifically the science behind it. I spent months researching happiness in preparation for a seminar I was teaching, exploring the economics, politics, and marketing of happiness, and ultimately what influences our own individual happiness.  From the first time I taught the course, I became fascinated by the subject, and in the years since, I have had the opportunity to teach the course again several times, which has profoundly impacted the lens in which I see my own happiness.  As reflected in the name of this Insight Box, happiness is a journey.  Happiness is not a destination at which we arrive at; rather our relationship with happiness is ongoing and takes our own effort to guide us on a path, maximizing moments which bring us joy.  This box was designed with you in mind. It contains specific research about the influences which impact our own happiness, as well as strategies we can integrate today to positively impact our well-being. And as with all Insight Boxes, this box includes some beautiful - and fun - items designed for inspired living!
