100 Happy Days

Today I started the 100 Happy Days challenge.  This is a personal goal to start recording the little things that make me happy every day.  Call it my virtual gratitude journal, if you will.

According to the website, 71% of people that signed up to do this did not complete the challenge because they didn't have time.  It takes less than 5 minutes to post a photo to any of the social media sites.  Do you have time to be happy?

Finding joy in the little things in life is free.  You don't have to pay a membership fee to get in.  All you have to do is open your eyes and think about the simple things that bring happiness to your life, whether it be a pretty flower growing in your garden or paying it forward and buying the coffee order for the person in line behind you at Starbucks.

I encourage you to join in the fun and sign up for the challenge yourself.  Some people that make a conscious effort to see the little happies in their lives have reported a better outlook on life, lowered depression rates, better relationships with loved ones and are more happy over time.  It sounds like a win-win to me!

There are several ways you can participate, on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.  Post a picture of your happy moment and don't forget to use the hashtag #100HappyDays.  Do this for 100 days.  It's that simple!

I have chosen to share my happy days on Instagram and I'd love to see some of your happy moments.  Feel free to tag me in your #100HappyDays posts whether they are on my Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.  I can't wait to hear how you do in your challenge!

Wishing your 100 happy days - and many more!
