10 Days of Happiness

Because I've been interested in positive psychology for awhile, I'm subscribed to a bunch of newsletters and blogs about happiness. Of course, even though my blog is about happiness at work, the general theories still apply.  You just have to figure out how to do all the stuff that makes you happy all the time, including while you're at work.

While I don't want to repeat stuff that's already available elsewhere, I'll share something below that was in my inbox today from the "I Am Happy Project."  I'm going to try and make as many of these calls as I can and maybe I can pass along some tidbits about how they might be applied at work.  This is starting tomorrow, January 6th, at 1pm MT.  Looks like there's an app to check out as well!

The “I Am Happy Project,” the brainchild of Edwin Edebiri of Davis, California, is inviting people worldwide to participate in a “10 Days of Happiness” campaign which will run from January 6th through the 15th. Participants are encouraged to join the Global Happiness Conference Call at 12 pm pacific or 3pm eastern to focus on one of the project’s manifesto “Ten Ways to Be Happy” for each day of the ten-day period.

There will be different speakers featured each day. Each call will be about 10 to 15 minutes and cover 2 to 3 nuggets that will make your 2014 a happier year.

The call in number is 712-432-0900 and the access code is 391022#
Day 1: Decide to be happy and make it your top priority.
Day 2: Smile more and learn to laugh at yourself.
Day 3: Volunteer your time one on one or to a group.
Day 4: Donate your money according to your pocket, even if it is a dime.
Day 5: Make time for the 3 F’s: Faith, Family & Friends.
Day 6: Create a list of all the things you are thankful for or that make you happy.
Day 7: Create a list of all the things that make you unhappy and find a solution or ways to eliminate them.
Day 8: Learn to manage your time and your money.
Day 9: Be active and make healthy choices.
Day 10: Create a goal or dream list and work diligently towards them.
