Hi there! I’m Andy Proctor.
I’m a happiness activist, a certified positive psychology practitioner and professional life coach and the host of the More Happy Life podcast. I believe in building a world that is a little more happy. We may not be able to fix everything about the world or about our lives, but we can make it a little more happy every day. That’s where our control lies. If we believe we can change everything at once, we will be discouraged, but if we try to make today a little more happy, you regain control and you are empowered! This is what I’m all about. Making the small changes that trigger upward spirals of health and well-being in your life and in the lives of people around you.
I’m on a mission to help you have a more happy life. How, you ask? Well, I want to inspire you to take action for your own happiness and then be inspired to become a happiness activist as well! Together we can make the world a more happy place to live. But first, start with YOU! Are you truly happy? How happy are you? This is step one. Increase your own happiness. To help you with this, I have created lots of free resources as well as courses that you can take to educate yourselves and make your own happiness a priority in your own life!
