Happiness Habits with Sylvie Gouin

​Happiness Habits is now Live! - Welcome to the conversation.  Listen and learn from wisdom keepers who walk the talk of wellness and happiness.

​I love hearing people’s stories. What inspires them, what challenges them and what strategies they have adopted to make happiness and wellness a priority in their life.


​I am excited to present a new project brought to you by the School of Happiness: Happiness Habits from the Heart. A platform to listen and learn from wisdom keepers who walk the talk.

This initiative holds a series of conversations profiling humans who: live from the heart, choose happiness as a way to be and have inspired me and influenced my life positively. I hope you will find their take home tips and wisdom nuggets interesting too.

I often receive my inspirations and ideas when I am walking in the woods, after meditation or hopping on my trampoline! Exercise stimulates my brain, meditation clears my mind and the expansiveness of nature helps me tap into my creative imagination.

I’d love to know how you get your creative ideas – reply ​below and let me know 🙂

The flash of creating “Happiness Habits from the Heart” came to me while hiking near Hood River in Oregon last summer. This idea took hold of me and wouldn’t let go, it was meant to be manifested, so here it is!

Each month I will invite you to enjoy a new conversation.  Get comfy, make a cup of tea and listen to their personal stories and discover the wide perspectives about happiness and wellness.

I am delighted to introduce you to my first guest Sylvie Gouin, from Inspired Living with Sylvie. She will share her own journey of not always being happy and her current secrets to feeling great.
