Eat Happy, Move Happy, Sleep Happy, Feel Happy
Happiness Factory was founded to create bespoke holistic wellness programmes centred on five key pillars - sleep, nutrition, movement, mindfulness & social connection. We bring together a community of like-minded people and experts to be Happy Together.
WHAT WE DO
Working with leading brands and expert practitioners, Happiness Factory creates custom wellness experiences by working with specialist practitioners in health & wellness - including some of Hong Kong’s top Trainers, Psychologists, Doctors and Health Tech - to integrate the science of health with holistic practices for optimal wellbeing.
THE FOUR PILLARS OF HAPPINESS FACTORY
Happiness Factory is built on four pillars of health and wellbeing: Eat Happy, Move Happy, Sleep Happy and Feel Happy, reflecting just how fundamental nutrition, movement, sleep and emotions are in our everyday lives. Combining the expertise of top practitioners in the field of wellbeing, we have the ability to sustain and enhance our daily happiness through focusing on different aspects of each of these pillars.
The Happiness Factory Community brings together like-minded individuals and experts across the world to embark upon and share their own happiness journeys.
Did you know that we spend around one third of our lifetime asleep? We seem to know that sleep is important, but do we really know why?
As the fundamental pillar of physical and mental wellbeing, sleep is crucial when it comes to an optimally functioning body and brain. It’s the only time we can truly rest and repair; be it muscle recovery, a digestive system reset, or the brain clearing out any unnecessary information - none of these can take place without the sweet hours of slumber. If we are consistently sleep deprived, we are more likely to make poor decisions, crave unhealthy foods, have less energy, and generally have a much less positive outlook. Our social relationships may suffer and we may even bring on chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart conditions.
A good night’s sleep contributes to multiple health benefits, including boosted immunity, increased fertility, less chance of weight gain, higher sex drive and improved mental wellbeing, to name a few! Happiness Factory will utilise science-backed information alongside biometric data and modern technology to boost these health benefits as well as establish the root cause of any possible sleep issues.
Just as we are each born with our very own unique DNA, we each have our very own unique gut microbiome. Meaning, the bacteria that lives in our digestive system varies in each and every single human being on the planet. With this in mind, it’s important to recognise that when it comes to diet and nutrition, there is never one size fits all. Food is incredibly powerful, containing information that talks to our genes, turning them on and off and affecting their function from moment to moment. Even more fascinating, the timing of when we eat has been shown to have a significant impact on blood sugar, cholesterol ratios and the overall impact on our heart health. The good news here? We have the power to use food for our own good, and in turn improve a range of health markers such as inflammation and cell regeneration.
At Happiness Factory, we work with experts in this field to share the science behind nutrition, and its impact on various bodily functions including metabolism, circadian rhythm, digestive system, and even our reproductive system.
The objective of Eat Happy is to discover how your body responds to what and when you eat, and ultimately optimise your gut microbiome to beat potential illnesses and improve any physical and mental functions that are related to your gut.
We all know that exercise is good for us, but too often the word exercise is synonymous with all things intense and sweaty. If we stop and take a moment to look at what exercise truly is, it’s simply the art of moving our bodies in a multitude of ways.
And just as sleep and a good diet nourishes our body, so too does movement. When we move our bodies and allow the energy to flow through, we switch on all of our body’s and brain’s functions, as well as the happy hormones which leave us feeling oh so good.
In addition to creating this wave of endorphins, movement has the ability to build our resilience to stressors - both environmental or emotional - and improve our mitochondrial function, known to be the foundation of a strong immune system. What’s more, movement is widely recognised as one of the most powerful interventions for preventing and managing depression and anxiety.
It’s all of the above that creates the Move Happy pillar, designed to help you achieve a balanced and mindful pattern of daily movement. Rather than following an intense exercise routine, you will learn to listen to your body and respond intuitively based on your internal and external environments. Variety, much like with diet, is what your body thrives on so together we will experience many ways of moving - running, boxing, resistance training, yoga, pilates, dancing - to achieve a sense of balance in this area.
Have you ever been so busy rushing around that you feel a sense of disconnect from the present and what you’re actually doing? In today’s ever-increasingly hectic world, we’re so busy being busy that our minds can struggle to keep up with our bodies, potentially leading to burnout and stress which in turn come with their own side effects including hormonal imbalances, fatigue, and high blood pressure. This is where we can harness the power of our mind.
Our brain health and our mood are the product of our lifestyle and well-being. We may not be able to control or change the events around us, but we do have the power to manage how we feel and respond to those events. The more grounded we are, the more resilient our mind will be in enduring the inevitable stresses that life throws at us.
Feel Happy is the icing on the Eat Happy, Sleep Happy and Move Happy cake, providing you with a bag of additional tools focused on your mental well-being. Meditation, breathwork, sound healing and mindfulness therapies are a few of the examples of grounding practices which can bring your body into a calmer state, and through the Feel Happy pillar you will access the tools that are right for you.
We work with a broad range of practitioners in this field whose methodology complements your nutrition, movement and sleep practices, therefore offering a fundamental sense of control in your happiness journey and daily life.
Happiness Factory brings together like-minded people who are all united in exploring how to be happier and healthier versions of themselves. With similar goals and shared common interests, these individuals come together to learn and grow through interactions with one another, as well as with our renowned wellness practitioners.
All of those within the Happiness Factory community inspire each other, have fun together, and ultimately become happier and healthier together.
Happiness Factory takes a holistic and sustainable approach to optimising your physical and mental health, and we adopt the following guiding principles:
Based on Science
Using a range of your health data and biometrics (aka the measurements and calculations of your unique physical and behavioural characteristics) plus the science of functional medicine, we’re able to get an understanding of just how your mind and body performs. This data enables us to develop personalised plans to optimise your health, hitting the key drivers which will maximise your personal happiness day in, day out. We will also continue to track your response and progress to ensure we create tangible results.
Sustainable and Accessible
Good health can at times seem hard to reach, which is why Happiness Factory aims to make it simple, achievable, accessible and sustainable. Each of our Happiness Pillars is underpinned by specific values, methods and teachings, all of which can be broken down and utilised to create small, easily manageable habits.
There is a wealth of health information out there, which at times can simply be overwhelming and confusing. We work with you to interpret and understand the facts, and integrate the relevant aspects into your lifestyle. We want to ensure you enjoy every moment of your Happiness Journey, so we are dedicated to helping you establish a solid foundation which will breed positive changes and a balanced state.
East meets West
We incorporate aspects of ancient Eastern holistic healing & natural therapies and fuse them with certain methods of modern functional medicine. The two modalities combined allows for a personalised approach to ensure optimisation of your mind, body and soul.
Best in Class
We only collaborate with people that our Founder has personally worked with. Our practitioners are leaders within their specialised fields, giving you access to the best of the best when it comes to experts in the wellness industry.
Community is at the heart of everything we do at Happiness Factory. From full-time parents, to HNWIs and corporate executives, to yoga teachers and health coaches - we are a solid community of like-minded people who choose to come together to share and grow. We continue to nourish and build this community through seminars, workshops, events and retreats, and welcome anyone and everyone who is seeking the tools to happiness and bettering themselves.
