Happy day 5. A fun and chilled day with these guys at my sisters and brother in laws. Look at these posers!
As promised, I will be sharing my healthy living guide with you for the next 4 weeks. This is not just going to be about what I am eating, but also about busting some myths about food that are currently going around, as well as sharing all round general health tips. Having a healthy body and mind is not just about food and exercise, there are many other things you can do!
Now as you know, I am not one for hitting the gym or restricting myself to eating only raw vegan food! However there is something everyone can do to generally improving their health just by making small manageable changes. Remember, it’s all about elephant sandwiches 😉 (basically, you would never be able to eat a whole elephant! So break it down into bitesize pieces!).
I challenge you to make one positive change a day. Here are some examples of what you can start to introduce into your life over the next 4 weeks.
Imagine how different your life could be in 4 weeks if you introduce just 1 new habit every day? Continue reading
Day 2 and today I’ve been super happy about the sunshine and being able to work outside!
As per the happiness challenge I posted yesterday, here’s my day 1 entry!
Even though I realised I didn’t want the hairstyle I thought I did for my wedding, I did find one that looked awesome and is a bit like this:
So my sister sent me this amazing link on Facebook! I have signed up and am starting tomorrow!
Are you up for the happiness challenge? What have you got to lose! Sign up here
We live in times when super-busy schedules have become something to boast about. While the speed of life increases, there is less and less time to enjoy the moment that you are in. The ability to appreciate the moment, the environment and yourself in it, is the base for the bridge towards long term happiness of any human being.
71% of people tried to complete this challenge, but failed quoting lack of time as the main reason. These people simpy did not have time to be happy. Do you?
How? Plain simple!
Every day submit a picture of what made you happy!
It can be anything from a meet-up with a friend to a very tasty cake in the nearby coffee place, from a feeling of being at home after a hard day to a favour you did to a stranger.
#100happyday challenge is for you – not for anyone else.
It is not a happiness competition or a showing off contest. If you try to please / make others jealous via your pictures – you lose without even starting. Same goes for cheating.
So first you register in the challenge >here<, then choose your favorite platform for submitting pictures. Here you can decide for yourself on the privacy of your participation & happy moments. Either:
- Share your picture via facebook, twitter or instagram with a public hashtag #100happydays;
- Come up with your own hashtag to share your pictures with to limit publicity. (Don’t forget to tell us how to find your pictures though 😉 )
- Simply send your pictures to myhappyday (at) 100happydays.com to avoid any publicity.
And you’re ready to go! 🙂
Why would I do that?
People successfully completing the challenge claimed to:
– Start noticing what makes them happy every day
– Be in a better mood every day
– Start receiving more compliments from other people
– Realise how lucky they are to have the life they have
– Become more optimistic
– Fall in love during the challenge.
So who’s joining me? I can’t wait to start 🙂
Just as always, a little message has come from the Universe at the exact right time. This little beauty has just popped into my inbox from the world famous Deepak Chopra, and as it’s something I feel quite strongly about I thought I’d share it with you. Enjoy 🙂
You’ve found your passion and you’re lucky enough to try and make it into a career. But how can you ensure you don’t lose that adrenaline fuelled excitement and drive that you had at the beginning?
Working from home sounds like the dream gig right? Well, to be honest, I can’t really complain. The FREEDOM I’ve always craved to design my own life, I’ve now got (lack of earning a wage being a bit of a barrier of course). But like with everything, making your passion into ‘work’, can have its drawbacks and you may find that:
- You lose sight of why it is you’re doing what you’re doing
- You become isolated which alters your perspective in a negative way
- You start to doubt yourself and if you will succeed
But how can you turn this around?
When I started on this journey to become self-employed I knew that one the hardest things to deal with would be other people’s opinions on what I was doing. I knew that the road I was about to embark on would strike a chord of fear amongst many because I was doing the opposite of everything we’ve been taught that would lead to a ‘successful’ life. Fighting against a lifetime of education aimed to do one thing, is not easy.
I knew that to realise my dream I would need to surround myself with people who were a positive influence. People who encouraged and believed in my dream rather than those who would project their own fears on to me in an attempt to be down to earth. To be rational. But why does this fear exist?
