The mind behind
Mindful Happiness

Johanna "Giddy" Goldsmith

Welcome to Mindful Happiness, and thanks for being here today.

My name is Johanna Goldsmith, but friends call me Giddy.

Mindful Happiness came to life in mid 2014 when my own mental illnesses began to surface. This space has evolved over time, but has always been here to spread positive energy & thoughts, to create a channel to share real stories about my mental health journey, and to encourage others to do the same.

I personally survived my own mental health battle and believe it’s so important to raise awareness to end the stigma, and to create more supportive communities for those suffering and recovering. Practicing mindfulness was one of the effective tools that helped me overcome the battle with my own mind.

Here you’ll find honest stories of my journey, what helped me get through it and what may potentially help you too. I hope Mindful Happiness inspires you to live a more happy and healthy life by being more mindful every day, in everything you do and everyone you come in contact with. As they say, you have to go through darkness to get to the light and that’s exactly what happened to me. I continue to find different keys to happiness and believe you can too. It might not be easy, but I promise it’ll be worth it. I hope you can take away something positive for yourself by reading my experiences about who I surround myself with, where I’ve come from, where I am now and where I’m headed in this beautiful marathon of life.

Stay mindfully happy,
