A little while ago I wrote a post about making time for the things that make you happy (you can click here to read it!).
One of my closest friends is using the ’100 Happy Days’ Challenge as perfect example of this! Jazmin found the challenge has helped help her find what it is that makes her happy and it also helped her recognise something good about every day, no matter how tired or stressed she was.

100 Happy Days
Recently I became very stressed, I started a new job and moved and I felt like I was constantly working for months on end!
I started doing the ‘100 Happy Days’ challenge to try to focus on the little things through my day that make me happy.
Coming home from a long shift, staying late and feeling so physically and mentally exhausted (being an RN on a surgical ward!); I would normally just switch off and watch TV or have a nap. I realised that I had no time for me that day, and switching off will just make the tiredness worse.
So, now when coming home I do something that makes me happy, something I love.
Another thing I realised was that I figured out what things actually make ME happy. Everyone is different, and the things that make me happy are creative and low-key, and that’s ok.
Most of the people I talk to my age say that they have fun by grabbing a huge group of friends and going drinking. Personally, I could not think of anything worse. I enjoy things like quilting, makeup artistry, reading, cooking and gardening. Socially, I like having small dinners with friends and hanging out shopping or watching a movie.
Accepting what I like and actually doing it and not feeling that I have to fit in what everyone else likes, is important. I know it’s clichéd, but my main point is BE YOURSELF, the only thing that will make you happy, truly happy within yourself is being who you are.
Never mind what people think, never worry about the judgement of others, because the people who mind don’t matter, and the people who matter don’t mind.
