DIY happiness

It seems that an ‘attitude of gratitude’ will make you happier and healthier. In fact studies have shown that people who focus on being thankful for small things, begin to notice the good things in their life rather than their problems (and we could all do with a few ‘good’ things right now).

So… why not try to grow your own happiness?

For the next month, think of two or three things that you are grateful for every day. You know – small things like an act of kindness, something beautiful you saw, your dog running to greet you at the end of the day… whatever makes you smile really.

Do this each night before you go to sleep and write them down on a scrap of paper OR you could try keeping a gratitude journal. Let’s see how much ‘happy’ we can grow.
