This week we welcome Tessa Stowe to the show. She is the Happiness Pathfinder. She has found a path back to happiness for herself and shares it with others. Her expertise is on the subject of reclaiming happiness and being as happy as one can be has come from two main areas:
– It’s come from her corporate high-flying days where she had a huge education on what does NOT make one happy—even though I didn’t realize it at the time.
– It’s come from her own journey back to happiness after her husband of 27 years died.
– It’s come from her being her own guinea pig and testing happiness practices.
Questions we ask in this episode:
- What is true happiness?
- Why are so many of us unhappy?
- What strategies can we learn to become happier?
This week I'm excited to welcome Tessa Stowe. Tessa is known as the Happiness Pathfinder who has made it part of her life's purpose to decode the science around happiness to create practices that everyone can follow that ultimately leads to a happier life.
00:59 In this [00:01:00] interview we discuss her journey that led her to this path and also the habits and behaviors that are subconsciously making us unhappy. What it ultimately boils down to is that life really sucks when we're not happy. I encourage you to sit down, relax, and enjoy this conversation. Over to Tessa.
01:20 Hey, guys. This is Stu from 180 Nutrition and I'm delighted to welcome Tessa Stowe to the podcast. Tessa, good morning. How are you?
01:28 Good morning, Stu. Stu? [00:01:30] Stuart? Both?

01:37 Okay. I'll Stu away with Stu today.
01:41 Thank you so much for joining us. Before we get into the questions today I'd just love it if you could tell our listeners a little bit about who you are and what you do.
01:51 Who am I?
01:52 Gosh, that's a big question.
01:53 Who are you?
01:56 Well, my name is Tessa Stowe and I'm all about [00:02:00] helping people fast-track their happiness, particularly after a significant event has sucked it out of them. I do that with happiness recipes and we'll talk about those as we go. Essentially they're very fast, fun, effective, and you can fit them into your day.
02:19 I actually got into this ... I'm not a counselor, I'm not a therapist, I'm not any of those things. It's more from my [00:02:30] life experience and I've also really studied and connected with a lot of the world's leading experts on happiness and behavior.
02:38 I got into this because basically I was tricked. I was tricked.
