After posting a guest blog on my friend Jazmin who was doing the 100 Happy Days Challenge (you can read it here), I decided rather than just talking about it, I should do it too!
I have just finished my last post and wanted to share with you all the journey it has allowed me to go on and what benefits I found by doing it.
I like to think I’m a very happy person and initially thought the challenge would be SUPER easy. But it was not. Like every other human being, I have rough days too.
There were some days when I thought not a single good thing has happened to me today and there is nothing to be happy about.
But these were the days when the challenge was most beneficial. I was forced to find something to be happy about, perhaps it was something that I could look forward to or just a quote that really helped me get through the day. If I wasn’t doing the happy days challenge I would of gone to sleep those nights thinking how crappy my day was but now I feel as if I won’t.
Without thinking about it I already consciously note down happy things in my head that happen each day and at the end of the day I think about them. This is an amazing habit to have formed and I am so thankful that I chose to undertake the challenge.
Furthermore it has sort of changed the way I use social media. Before I would just upload pictures for the sake of it but now most of my captions are showing appreciation and happiness for all I have had happen to me throughout the day. I feel as though I will continue this – whether other people look at my caption or not does not matter – because its a conscious way that I can show gratitude and when I look back I am reminded of all the wonderful things that have occurred.
I hope I can keep these habits and continue on a path of conscious happiness and gratitude.
