#100happydays

Like pretty much everyone else on Twitter and Instagram right now, I am doing the #100happydays challenge.

The idea is that you find one thing to be happy about every day for 100 days, and I’m finding it both easy and overwhelming at once. (1 thing a day = easy; doing something every day for 100 days = AHHRGH!) By the end of the challenge, you should be able to see what types of thing make you happier, and also be a happier person because you’ve spent the past 100 days seeking out things that make you happy. You’re also held accountable because you need to share the posts on social media, which ultimately help spread happy! All in all it’s a pretty darn sweet initiative.

I’m 13 days in today, and here are a few of the things I’ve been happy about so far:

Day 7: early morning yoga, cafe breakfast, then hanging around with mint tea and working on personal things. Today rules and it's not even lunchtime yet.

Day 8: being treated to a box of cakes specifically so I can share them with new colleagues, because sharing is caring!

Day 9: turning the tube strike into an excuse to start the day with a healthy, life-affirming walk into work. (Or that's what I'm telling myself!)

  1. I’m not taking part (and this is the first I’d heard of it, to be honest), as I know lots of things that make me happy and make sure to keep them active in my life, but if it takes this discipline for others to find out for themselves, so be it 🙂

    • Completely agree, Dave! For me, I knew there were lots of things that make me happy… but through this challenge I’ve started to realise just how much food makes me happy! I mean, I knew I enjoyed food and eating, but I didn’t realise the level of appreciation I have for it until now 🙂
