Happiness Habits – Day 30: Happiness in the Future
It is hard to believe it has been 30 days since we started this Happiness Challenge together. We covered a lot of ground and if you followed along with the tips I shared and made an effort to improve your mood, your gratitude, and your joy, I’m sure you’re seeing a lot of progress and growth.
Let’s take a minute and look back at the themes we’ve covered so far this month:
Choice (Every Day), Commitment (Every Day), Noticing (Days 3, 10, 21, 22, 23), Gratitude (Days 4 & 25), Nutrition (Day 5), Stress (Day 6), Activity (Days 7, 15, 16, & 24), Connections (Days 8, 9, 11, 27 & 28), Bad Days (Days 12, 13 & 14), Sleep (Day 17), Confidence (Days 18 & 19), and Self-Care (Days 5, 6, 16, & 27). Here’s the list, if you want to go back and review any of them right now.
I’d also love it if you could rate these themes in terms of importance to you: both what was important, and what you felt helped you (or not).
This little survey takes about 2 to 3 minutes to fill out, depending on how thoughtful you are!
