People Are Saying The Nicest Things…


I loved the simple yet profound message in this book. Learning about the 31 types of happiness really helped me understand my husband’s love of nostalgia, even though it makes me sad – it makes him happy! There are so many ways to be happy. Also the book confirmed why at 52 my definition of happiness is dramatically different than it was at 20 – understandably so! The stories in the book from real people living real lives were inspiring and show how happiness can happen even in the middle of difficulty- we just need to know where and how to look. This book is easy to understand and the principles can quickly be put into practice by everyone no matter where you fall on the happiness scale. Here’s to more and different kinds of happiness in 2022!

“Understanding the Importance of Happiness…”

This important book on HAPPINESS enters the world at a time when happiness seems more elusive than ever. Pamela Gail Johnson has been researching and writing about happiness and stress management for many many years. Her latest book, PRACTICAL HAPPINESS, describes four simple yet deeply healing principles that can help us better understand the nature of this essential emotion. By incorporating multiple stories of people she has interviewed over the years, she offers real-life examples of how moments of happiness can affect our darkest experiences and turn our lives around – and why denied happiness is as detrimental to our wellbeing as any other denied emotion. Superbly written and profoundly healing, PRACTICAL HAPPINESS is a gem that I wholeheartedly recommend.

Thanks for visiting…
you’re making me smile even if you can’t see it.

Have you ever wondered where all of the happy people hang out?
Well, I did … as far back as 1997 even before I founded the Society of Happy People in 1998, formerly known as the Secret Society of Happy People.

It’s not that I didn’t know other happy people in 1997, but it seemed then just as it does now, that most people talk more about their Happiness Zappers than their happiness.

Have you ever noticed that?

Although things about the Society have changed over the decades, our basic goals haven’t.

We want to help you:

  • Recognize happiness
  • Celebrate more happiness

When you do these things… you’re helping create a happier world one person at a time.

Have fun exploring our site!
