The summer is almost over and it is time for me to get back to work – always a mixed thought of course but I feel ready to commit to some projects that are emerging. Apart from holidays with my kids one trip I made this summer was to the International Positive Psychology Association’s third conference in Philadelphia. I gave a workshop on the Five Ways to Well-being which seemed well received but the big surprise to me was the screening of a new film simply called Happy. Why a surprise? Well I was actually in it! I had completely forgotten that about 3 years these guys came to our offices and interviewed me (for quite some time!). Anyway independent documentaries take a long time to make and now it has been finally released. So apart from the shock of seeing myself through a time warp (with short hair and no beard!) it was great to see a well made thoughtful film about happiness around the world. The film is available for groups to arrange viewings and I think that Action for Happiness in the UK will host at least one this autumn. But I believe you can arrange them directly with the makers through their webiste here. Anyway the picture is of me (with friend) in happy t-shirts!
In time I will post here about the projects I am working that excite me but meanwhile have a good end of the summer.
