Welcome to DesignedHappy.com, my little corner of the webishpere (that's a word, right?).
I touched a bit on why this page exists here, but seeing as how positivity and happiness will be an underlying theme of everything on this site, I thought this would be a good time to tell you a little bit more about how I got here...
I started researching positive psychology in late 2011, while Pancake was pregnant with Stinky Face. I wanted to be a happier, more content person so I could teach my kid happy habits, instead of always finding the negative in a situation like I did. While I was googling how to be happier, I came across a Ted talk that would prove to be my springboard. The speaker is Shawn Achor, and the talk is titled, The Happiness Advantage.
Since I'm super nice, and part of being a happier and more positive person is practicing conscience acts of kindness, I will embed the video here for your convenience:
