How of Happy is a nonprofit organization dedicated to:
Create a fulfilling human journey for all!
Teach people self awareness in order to connect to themselves, connect to others and create their ideal life.
We are taught how our physical body works, and ways to keep it healthy, but the same attention is not given to our emotional wellbeing. This educational gap can leave us with anxiety, stressful relationships, loneliness, dissatisfaction, depression and anger. We believe in filling that gap so people are more empowered to live a satisfying and fulfilling life.
Our brain is wired for survival, and it’s great at it, thank goodness! We believe that understanding the science of how the brain works gives us access to respond to life intentionally, instead of reacting from our hardwired survival instincts. (We also believe that this is the juicy stuff!)
Although it’s important to know what humans need to survive, we believe that all humans have certain needs to thrive! Let us help you get out of your own way, build awareness, and find empowerment, so you can thrive!
We believe that your existence in the universe makes an impact on its own, and awareness is power. Once you understand yourself, and how you influence the world around you, the possibilities for change are limitless.
Founder and Teacher
Tisse’s journey with teaching and coaching started 16 years ago when they were struggling deeply with mental health and found that traditional routes of counseling, psychology, and psychiatry didn’t work for them. Since then, Tisse has traveled around the world studying personal growth topics including leadership, emotional intelligence, neuroscience, mindfulness, and spirituality. Tisse knew they wanted to work with others in this way, and that ultimately led them to design the How of Happy. While not in work mode, Tisse finds bits of happiness while taking photographs, especially of small details in new places, eating fresh fruit, and spending time with family. They will forever appreciate the small plant growing from a crack in the sidewalk, and their dream trip is going outer space!
