About

Hi! My name’s Mary Ellen but you can call me Mel.

I am the founder and main content creator of The Healthy Happy Project (T-double-H-P for short).

A Little Bit About Me
I’m 20 years old and currently reside in Newport, RI . . . though I love to explore new places. Adventure gets my creative juices flowing!

I have a fierce passion for health and all things natural. I also love to create things.

In my spare time you can find me working on THHP content,

cooking, making music, dancing or hanging out with my two rad nephews.

How It All Started
In the fall of 2015, I started a tumblr blog to promote positivity and health.

This came after some major changes in my life.

I had recently recognized and accepted the many food intolerances which had been affecting my mental & physical health, a few relationships I had that were no longer serving me, and the overall lack of control I felt over my life.

My sense of self was shifting.

I realized that in order to live a positive life I needed to adopt a more positive attitude towards myself and the world around me.

So I began trying to 1. find balance in my life and 2. help inspire others to do the same.

I posted positive affirmations, motivational quotes and images of my meals on my Tumblr page.

Although Tumblr was great, the site’s parameters and layout soon led me to dive into developing my own independent website.

This was the birth of The Healthy Happy Project.

The Healthy Happy Project Today

THHP is centered around all things health & wellness with the primary goal of sharing this knowledge with you.

I believe that total health is rooted in a balance of the mind, body and earth.

When one has a healthy mind and body, he or she feels physically and mentally well and THAT is what life is all about.
