About the Happiness Club
The Happiness Club promotes the benefits of happiness and spreads smiles, love and positivity. It is open to everyone who seeks more happiness and is based on the philosophy that we can decide to be happy now, rather than depend on others or the circumstances of our life to make us happy. The club promotes the science of happiness and the benefits of adopting a positive mental attitude.
Our happiness club meetings offer an encouraging common sense view of life, helping people to change the things they can and accept the things they can’t. The club focuses away from the negative and aims to be uplifting, inspiring and optimistic. Club meetings allow you to be in the moment and get in tune with your most positive thoughts and feelings. If you need some emotional CPR (continuous positive reinforcement), surround yourself with positive people and get happy!
Why be happy?
Why not? When you decide to be happy, everything works better – problems get resolved or they no longer have a negative effect on you. Life is short and science shows that happy people live longer by about 10 years, are healthier, kinder, suffer less stress and confusion, have better focus, patience, tolerance and self-control, enjoy inner peace, enhanced relationships and simply enjoy life more. Choosing happiness can help you realise your highest aspirations and turn challenges into opportunities. Happiness can help you to become all that you can be...
Happiness is infectious so come along and join the fun! We meet once a month for a couple of hours of inspiration, friendship and support. There are presentations on various aspects of happiness along with regular features to inspire and uplift. Also available are workshops, personal sessions, group leader training and a book library.
We hold special induction meetings for new member where you will learn all about the club and how it could benefit you. New members are more than welcome to try our brand of happiness with no obligation and no charge.
