How to create a happy planet

52d494617271fWe hear a lot at our conferences about how to create happy people. Experts in meditation, positive psychology and neuroscience come from far and wide to teach us about mindfulness, love and brain plasticity. Using the tools and techniques they describe, we discover it is possible to change ourselves for the better.

Obviously this is great news, not just for us but for the rest of the planet too. Because when we’re wiser, more content, more aware, have purpose and feel connected, we’re less likely to indulge in selfish and harmful behaviours that impact negatively on our environment. Rainforest destruction, pollution of our waterways, depletion of our natural resources: none would exist without human hatred, greed and ignorance.

On the other hand, when we prioritise personal growth and greater self-awareness, we just naturally start looking for ways to tread more lightly on the earth, leaving the smallest ecological footprint possible. Given the astronomical number of problems, there’s no shortage of things we can do.

That’s why we thought it was about time we brought you an eBook on this very subject. Again, drawing on all the wonderful material in our Think & Be Happy blog, we have sourced eight articles that discuss how you can make a difference, both in helping to mitigate environmental damage that’s already been done as well as preventing any more from occurring. We hope you feel inspired.
