Ep 32: Lessons from the world's first and only Happyologist | With Susanna Halonen
By Project Love
This week we caught up with the world’s first and only Happyologist - Susanna Halonen Susanna has made it her life’s work to study happiness and is author of ‘Screw Finding your Passion’ and ‘Happiness is here - a 30 day guide to joy and fulfilment’. She describes herself as a born pessimist who trained herself to be a happy optimist and now helps others to do the same. So we joined her in her flat in London with her big cuddly dog to dive deep into the topic of happiness and what it really takes to live a happy and fulfilled life. We talked about: - How happiness as a practice (just like love) and not a destination and certainly not a permanent state we can maintain 24/7. - The importance of allowing ourselves to feel negative emotions and how they in fact play an important role in us cultivating happiness in life. - How being successful in life is not what brings about happiness, but quite the opposite: cultivating happiness TODAY in your life is what will in fact help you to achieve your dreams. Plus Susanna shares her top tips on practicing happiness on a day to day basis and even showed us how to make a gratitude practice even more powerful. So snuggle up and enjoy a deep dive into happiness. We guarantee it will make you smile :) x Selina & Vicki P.S. For any recruitment consultants out there, we laughed at the idea of Selina once having stint as a recruitment consultant, not to disrespect recruitment consultants but because the idea of Selina in any office job always makes us laugh (think wild animal in a cage not being able to sit still).
