A friend of mine met a life coach while he was teaching abroad last year. She helped him get through a rough time dealing with being homesick. She got him to participate in a 21-day program called The Happiness Project.
We were talking one day about getting back to regularly practicing gratitude and carrying out acts of kindness. So we decided to start The Happiness Project ourselves.
The program lasts 21 days because they say that’s how long it takes to build a habit. THP is structured in a way that helps you build a set of healthy habits.
Basically every day, for the next 21 days, I’ll be keeping track of the following:
- 3 things I’m grateful for (never the same one twice)
- 1 positive experience from today
- 15-30 minutes of physical activity
- 1 way that I paid it forward
- Amount of time I spent meditating
- Personal reflection
I love that this project will help me make it a point to do something for someone else, every day. It sounds like a lot but sometimes the smallest acts of kindness can make someone’s day in the biggest way.
I’m looking forward to this project. And to sharing this journey with you. Happy Happiness Project!
