Find More Joy in Your Life: 30 Days Happiness Challenge

It is time to bid farewell to the hot summer days, and long walks on the beach (if you’re lucky to live close to the beach).

But it doesn’t mean that you need to lose your happy vibe with the first autumn wind blow.

If you are feeling nostalgic already, take our 30 days happiness challenge and sprinkle positive vibes around your home and family – we swear it’s infectious!

I know mornings must be hard for most of us. Some are said to normally seek advice from therapists in order not to get too anxious when they wake up.

Getting up on a rainy, cold day is not the ideal setup for a really cheerful day ahead, but you can still make it happen. Work on it every day, and you will start seeing a positive impact on your mood and mornings gradually, one step at a time.

This happiness challenge has been designed around small habits and tasks that will build up your positive emotional balance and let it tip over the negative states.

As with everything hard in life, it takes practice.

Be patient and kind to yourself. Take it one day at a time.

Are you ready to start?
