Blog - Banana Skins and Happiness Coaching By Tim Moorey

By The Haven Team: 30 Jul 2014

Happiness coaching is all about helping you to find your smile, to find your giggles and to find your laughter. It’s about who you are now and who you want to be. The good news is everyone has an abundance of smiles and giggles. It is one of the reflexes we are born with!

Our daily lives are full of ups and downs, lefts when we expect to go right and Sat Navs that send us up windy country lanes. Sometimes it’s hard to find a laugh or even a smile when it seems things are not going how we expect. It's easy to get into a spiral of life happening to us rather than us being part of it.

Of course we all slip occasionally on a banana skin and curse the fall, the trick is, instead of spending precious time dwelling, we need to get back on track, back in flow. Slipping on a banana skin has always been the staple diet of any slapstick comedy despite its obvious health and safety slur! Maybe there is a message in this, maybe we can smile and laugh more.

A wise person once said that "a smile is the birth of a laugh." Another wise person said "Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face."

You will easily find happier ways to experience everyday situations and events, and feel the flow of success and wellbeing.
