Freedom from Emotional Eating, Food & Weight Obsession

Is There a Formula for Happiness?

Emma Shuman, Age 6

My dog Emma’s silliness, hanging out with my BFF, when a client has a break through, walking around my clean house right after my cleaning people leave…these things make me happy.

What makes you happy? If you’re happy, that’s wonderful! Good for you! You deserve it!

If you’re not happy, why is that? What are you doing differently from people who are happy?  What are you waiting for? You deserve to be happy, too. I know that, without question!

I just opened my Oprah Newsletter and read an article all about Happiness. I’m happy I read it. So happy, I want to share it. Read the whole article here, 5 Things Happy People Do.  If this link does not work, go to and in the Search Box type in, 5 Things Happy People Do. (Btw, technical glitches mess with my happiness 🙂 )

I have worked in the Wellness Field for 30 years. I created an Emotional Eating & Binge Eating Disorder Recovery Program way before most people knew BED was an eating disorder, NOT a “willpower” issue. Personally, I suffered for years before finding answers and the help I needed and deserved! I became a Coach in 1997 to help others who were still suffering as I had. I love being a Coach!
