Happy Fix® gives you the tools to live your happiest life!
I believe in people owning their own lives.
That’s why I’ve taken five years of research and coursework on creating happiness and wholeness and distilled it down into a way to help individuals like you bring joy and balance to your life. Happy Fix® is a resource full of scientifically backed programs, inspiration, information, and support to be consumed and shared, creating a community of people who understand the importance of being positive and improving our lives and the lives of those around us.
Throughout my 16 years as a public school teacher, I’ve learned that while we serve at the front line in the battle to educate and nurture children, we teachers put ourselves at the bottom of our “to do” list. We go to school when we’re sick because it’s too much work to do sub plans and deal with the aftermath; we buy things for our classrooms because it’s not provided even though it negatively impacts our financial security; we take grading home and go to school functions at night and on weekends to support our students while having to find childcare for our own children; we navigate issues in our classrooms like mental illness, poverty, lack of parental involvement, helicopter parenting and behavior issues.
It’s not just teachers who live a stressful, close to burned out life. You can go down the list from military members and their spouses to healthcare professionals to, well, any profession where you put others before yourself. But what gets lost in the shuffle is that we cannot fill from an empty vessel.
Through Happy Fix, I want to help you restore balance to your life and engage in the self-care you need and, frankly, have earned. I want you to be able to spend time with family and friends and live the balanced physical, emotional, and spiritual life that you deserve.
Need to set boundaries? Got it. Learn how to take care of your own needs? That too. Overwhelmed by an abundance of work and lack of time? I can help with that. Let me help you figure out what tools you need to help you find balance, to calm your soul when you need it and to engage in healthy relationships. I will provide a place of support and love where we can talk about how to handle the challenges we all face. It’s not a place for politics or the latest sexy curriculum model. Happy Fix is about you: that human being who happens to be a teacher, a nurse, a parent of a special needs child. Yes, you amazing wonderful, beautiful person with an incredible spirit — YOU.
Let’s work together to make this happen and share our happiness with everyone! If you have questions or just want to connect and share your own stories about how you approach challenges to get your Happy Fix, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks again for your interest in Happy Fix, giving you the tools to live a happier life.
