Hello!

I’m Brit. I started this blog in 2018 with the intention of helping other women flourish. I have made it my purpose to help others live a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

I do this by looking at scientific research in positive psychology and sharing it on the internet.

In a nut shell, I learn and teach the knowledge behind happiness and well-being.


THE WHY

I really do believe that by focusing on what truly matters, our lives can change for the better. Happiness is not always found where we think it is, and I want to be a part of a worldwide movement that focuses on success as a measure of personal wellness rather than financial wealth.

I hope after spending time on this site, you are:

  • Inspired to pull in more meaning into your life
  • Empowered to make a change and work towards personal growth
  • Finding tools and tips to help manage your mental health
  • Able to find more resiliency through life’s ups and downs
  • More educated about how to improve your well-being
  • FLOURISHING

 

My goal here is to disperse the knowledge you need to have the happy and flourishing life we all want and deserve.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Sparked Your Interest Positive Psychology?

As an undergraduate I took a positive psychology course which challenged me to try activities that have been shown to improve well-being as based on a book called The How Of Happiness. As a master’s student I studied theories that were also based on concepts found in positive psychology.

After I graduated I read The How Of Happiness (again) and Flourish (again) which is written by the father of positive psychology: Martin Seligman. I started to put these activities into my day to day life while also writing about it here! I have since then been doing my own research and reading more about mindfulness, resiliency, neuroscience, meditation, and much more.

As someone who has struggled with anxiety and depression from a young age, I have found that these types of activities and challenges have been very beneficial and I want to share them with everyone!
