Hi, I’m Dr. Sandip Roy, a medical doctor and a psychology writer who started The Happiness Blog.

I have written 1+ million words over a decade on positive psychology, the science of happiness and well-being, mindfulness, Stoicism, and dark psychology (narcissism, psychopathy, and sociopathy), since 2014.

My writings have been featured on:

Lifehack, Wequip, Happify, The Positive Psychology People, Growing With Gratitude, PositivePsychology.com, The Positive Times, The Till.

My articles have been mentioned in:

How Stuff Works, Lawyer Monthly, Brainz Magazine, Intuit Mint Life, My Personality, Scary Mommy, Springer Link, How Stuff Works, University of Kentucky Human Resources, University of Mexico Human Resources, Masaryk University (MUNI), The University of Alabama (Lindeman Lab), Find Your Spark, Edith Cowan University Blog, Her Campus at U Penn, American Society of Health-System Pharmacists, eCycle, The Simplicity Habit, MakeuseOf, University of Salford (Manchester).

I am strongly committed to exploring ways to improve mental well-being, cope with difficult times and emotions, and sustain personal growth.

My mission is to help people live more meaningful and satisfying lives.

My posts offer valuable insights and practical strategies based on real science to:

I also deep dive into Stoicism, a 2300-year-old philosophy that teaches us how to live well. It’s a pleasant surprise that many of its principles find support in the modern science of positive psychology.
