"The happiest people I’ve met are the people who live in the present and who are absorbed in what they are doing."
Those are the words of Paul Hannam - academic, environmentalist, entrepreneur and author of The Wisdom of Groundhog Day. Like many, Paul observed the spiritual subtexts to the 1993 comedy classic starring Bill Murray, and Paul’s used the lessons learnt by Murray’s protagonist Phil Connors to help change his own attitude, behaviour and outlook on life.
The secret? Small, positive changes each and every day. "When we wake up we can improve the quality of our day," says Paul. "We can create an exciting day or a dull day. We can hide away from the world or engage with it. We’ve got that choice."
