Why this blog?

Because wherever you are, you can have more happiness and for more of the time than you ever imagined. 'Do more of what you like, and less of what you don't!' (c) Richard Walker, 2009. And because happiness is often misunderstood. "Do you live to work, or do you work to live?" I reckon happy people do both at the same time. Make the decision now to tenaciously seek out what feels good – and find ways of doing more of it - rather than settle for “not bad.” There's a big difference. And when it comes to making changes, that's what I specialise in at abetterlife-uk.com and http://hertscollegeofhypnosisandnlp.co.uk

Happiness? What is it really?

Everyone seems to have a view on what happiness is. The best minds have pondered its true nature for some thousands of years. Happiness is no laughing matter. And what about other emotions? The so-called "negative" emotions? Are they to be shunned as the black sheep of the fold of emotions? I believe they are valuable as happiness, and all are there to guide us.

I have reviewed the matter from many angles - spirituality, mysticism, psychology, cosmology, neurobiology, religion, modern and ancient philosophy... and took the view that they all had something important to say. This short clip picks out one feature of my conclusions.
