Hello! Welcome to For A State of Happiness. I hope you’ll enjoy the blog.
From 2013 to 2016, I’ve written weekly blog posts on topics around happiness. I’ve started a sabbatical now, and my blog posts are on hold. I explain the reason for my break from blogging in this post. In short: TL;DR boils down to the notion that the world may not be ready for the ‘beyond GDP’ agenda yet, and I’ll give myself some breathing space before I move on.
For the moment, I’m spending time on reading happy books and devising new plans to make the world a happier place.
That doesn’t mean that there is nothing to do here, though. In the last years, I’ve written a lot about happiness from three angles: personal happiness, happiness at work, and happiness at the level of the state and our society. If you browse the categories and tags on the right, or check the indices (season 2013-14, 2014-15, 2015-16), you’ll be able to find a lot of interesting pieces. My highlights? Learning all on Gross National Happiness in Bhutan and speaking at the Wellbeing Forum in Mexico.
I am still available for doing talks, presentations and workshops on happiness (see some previous ones here, here and here), so do contact me if you are interested. Or if you like my work and want to get a coffee, feel free to get in touch via jasper [@] forastateofhappiness [dot] com!
Enjoy your exploration and the pursuit of happiness!
