I know it has been a while since my last Happiness Project update, mostly because it has been working so damn well. Those little projects with short term goals have turned my life around and made me a happy camper. It has made me think of happiness as a fluctuating emotion rather than a magical life that I am missing out on.
But like all projects it is something that you need to constantly work on, particularly when you are worried about New Zealand shaking itself apart and you can’t do a damn thing about it. So this week I am going to start on micro Happiness Project called three little things to give me a bit of a boost.
The rules are simple, pick three easy things that you have to stick to for a week. Make sure you write them down somewhere that you can see every day, and make sure they are so small that it only takes a little effort to complete them. Then at the end of the week you will not only have completed three goals, but also have made your life better in three small ways.
My three little things for this week are:
1. No buying food while at work (this can be a serious money drain)
2. Screens off by 10pm (I could watch iPlayer till the early hours without intending to)
3. Two lots of exercise
Easy right? That is entirely the idea.
