Happiness in south London

In happiness, what i'm reading on June 29, 2010 at 2:45 pm

I just came across a lovely blog which is quite close to my heart. It’s someone writing about happiness and food (two of my favourite things) and she lives just a few miles away from me. The Happiness Project is an online project with the aim of getting Londoners to ignore the horrid, expensive, dirty parts of our city and to share in all the amazing things there are to see, do – and eat – right on our doorstep. We don’t realise how lucky we are!

The writer also offers a series of ‘rules’ by which we can be more happy. Take a look at her blog and see what you think.

I’m hoping to be able to interview her for my ongoing research project into the nature of happiness. The aim of the research is to unpick what happiness means to us in a modern context and, given she’s using modern technology of blogging and she’s writing about London now, I think she’d make a great addition. Watch this space to see if I can persuade her to get involved ….

  1. I’m in! Thank you for the lovely comments and I’m so delighted you like the blog. Happiness and the pursuit of it is very close to my heart – I’d love to get involved.

    I’m actually also currently doing a series of “happiness interviews” with fellow bloggers and other people I meet – one is already on the blog and several are underway. They are more “what in London makes you happy” than the psychology of happiness though.
