Welcome to my blog, I’m Thomas, the happiness nerd, and I want to know how one can be truly happy in this precious and absurd little life we have. I’ve looked wide and deep, read a lot, discussed a lot, practiced some, and want to share with you what I’ve learned so far. My journey includes the study of psychology and philosophy, a PhD in motivational psychology, and a special interest for stoicism, epicureanism, buddhism, daoism, existentialism, psychotherapy, contemporary happiness studies, and others. Join me on exploring and discussing the many possible paths to happiness, not only for oneself, but for one’s fellow human beings and ultimately for all sentient beings. I’ll try to focus on scientifically sound and/or logically coherent approaches to happiness, which are grounded in “reality” (or what we can grasp of it)—you know, the nerdy way.

I hope that you will engage with me in the comment section, so I can learn from your knowledge and experience! Everybody with decent manners is welcome!

If you like what you see, please like and follow! If you think that somebody else might, too, please share—it would be my honor! If you want to receive an e-mail every time I post something new (which is usually twice a month), but you don’t want to open a wordpress account for that, you can do that, too (see sidebar or at the bottom of the page, depending on which device you’re using right now).

Thanks for reading, have a happy day!

Yours truly

Thomas, The Happiness Nerd
