“A flower does not think of competing with the flower next to it, it just blooms”.  One UK study that Action for Happiness mentions, states that if you “bloom” (don’t worry, I won’t take the flower analogy any further!) then you will have more positive emotion, vitalit...

Welcome to the Happy Café Ely @ Julia's tearoom.


The Café is a community enterprise which aims to make a difference to the happiness of people in Ely and the surrounding area.


There are several Happy Cafés across the UK and worldwide, the first of which was set up in Brighton in October 2014, inspired by the Action for Happiness movement.


The idea is simple: to create a friendly and welcoming meeting place, where local people can learn about scientifically proven methods to improve happiness and personal well-being.


Action for Happiness has researched and produced 10 keys for happier living. Postcards, posters, leaflets and supporting literature will be available at Julia's tearoom for people to learn and take action themselves.


The Café will be launching week commencing 10th July 2017. Following the launch week events (which you can read more about soon) the group will meet twice monthly on a Wednesday morning. Come along and discover for yourself how you can live happier.
