Happiness Works – a catalyst for culture change. If organizations understand happiness and its dividends, the way forward to a happier future is guaranteed. Connect, Be Active, Take Notice, Keep Learning, Give.

The benefits in numbers: 30% higher productivity, 54% better staff retention, 3x – higher creativity.

Nic Marks (yes, the person behind the Happy Planet Index among numerous other things) and his passion for happiness as a serious business! Happiness indeed works!


Workshop of Mixed Feelings

May 29, 2016

Bulgarian author Racho Burov‘s “Workshop of Mixed Feelings” [original title: Работилница за смесени чувства] is a great read – intriguing short stories with unexpected end. Whatever the issue – complicated family relations, extraterrestrial visits or anything you name it, each story is a challenge to the mind and the emotions of the reader.

Darkness and Light

May 25, 2016

There  are over 4,500 underground formations in Bulgaria, each with its own beauty. Visiting 2 very different ones in a day – Saeva Hole and Prohodna (aka the Eyes of God). The former is completely underground, the latter has two equal-sized holes in the ceiling in its middle chamber letting a lot of natural light in. The beauty of Darkness and Light in 2 shots!
