Happy Friday people!!!!
Have a great weekend!
Rest well, Sleep well, and Party Hard 😉
These days I am in love with Cranberries – Cranberry muffin, oats and cranberry cookies and dark chocolate with cranberries.
I know it’s not really healthy but sometimes it feels good to be high on calories.
How do you like to have cranberries??
Happy Republic Day to all the Indians!!
What a parade!! An impressive display of the best of India. I loved the theme which was Nari Shakti meaning Girl Power.
It was great to see all women contingents marching away in glory.
I simply loved the idea of a women wing commander, Pooja Thakur, giving The Guard Of Honour to the President of United States, Mr. Barack Obama! Girls can give their best in every field. I don’t say this because I am a girl, I say this because it’s a FACT!! Kudos to girl power!
And needless to say, it was such an honour having Mr. Barack Obama as the chief guest for our 66th Republic Day parade!
Today is the 23rd day of my #100HappyDays project (the actual post on Day 23 of #100HappyDays follows right after this post). It’s been a fun and an enriching experience till now. I can already see a difference in my attitude and my perception towards life. I have learnt to slow down a bit, enjoy every moment, not get bothered by every little thing that comes my way, and appreciate life in general.
A lot of people asked me quite a few questions on this project. I thought I should compile them and share with all my readers. If you have any other question or if you need some clarity, don’t hesitate to drop in your comment. I will try and answer them all.
So, here we go! All the FAQ’s are answered below –
Who started the #100HappyDays project?
Dmitry Golubnichy, is the man behind this amazing project. You can read about his amazing story here.
I want to start #100HappyDays too. What should I do?
Welcome to the club! I am glad you have taken this decision and trust me it’s going to be super fun!
All you have to do is, for 100 consecutive days, find atleast one thing that makes you happy. It can be as small as waking up early, or eating your favourite cake or spending time with loved ones to any major happy event of your life. Once you have your happy moment, post it along with a hashtag #100HappyDays on any social media platform. To make it more interesting you can add some pictures or videos.
I don’t like social media platforms. Do I need to have a social media account to join this movement?
Absolutely not! It’s a project to help you get started by appreciating little things in life. If you don’t have a social media account or are not comfortable sharing it online, you can write a journal or write an email or maybe just make a note of it in your mind. You can get creative and think of some other cool way. The idea of using a social media account is just that it keeps you motivated and you can share your happiness with a lot of people.
100 days is too long. Can I do it for fewer days?
Yes, ofcourse! It’s done for 100 days because that’s how it started. You can decide for how long you want to do it.
What if I forget to post some day during my project?
It has been an engaging activity for me. There have been days when I have been dead tired to post, or unwell and frankly, not so happy. But this is what this task is all about; finding happiness when you actually need it. So, if you have started this task with an intention to change your life for the good, it’s highly impossible you will miss out posting about it. But, we are all humans after all. If you do forget or miss out, no worries! You can continue from the next day. All that matters is you should enjoy this activity and have fun sharing your happy moments.
Where can I save or post my happy moments?
You can choose from any of your favourite social media platform like Twitter, Facebook or Instagram. You can write in your blog or your journal. Apart from these, I have found two awesome websites – 100HappyDays and HappiJar.
They are innovative and fun to use. Try them out!
How will I benefit from this project?
From the time you wake up until you go to bed, you will constantly be looking out for those little moments that make you smile. You will be more optimistic and have a better mood throughout the day. You will start noticing those little things in life that you have often neglected. You will emerge out to be a happier person at the end of it. And, being happy every single day will soon become a habit! 😊
I hope this has answered most of your questions. I will write about my entire experience once I complete 100 days.
Until then, stay glee as always!!
Interesting! I don’t think I ever thought of it. Will surely try it.
I was told a long time ago that the best way to get someone to come round to your way of thinking is simply this, creating a sub-conscious connection between you and the other person.
This is done by observing the other person’s body language and the way they are talking to you, such as tone and even words.
“When people are like each other, they tend to like each other”
Now, when speaking to people over the telephone you can almost get into your own routine, ways of doing things and pace of what you are saying. This is something I was guilty of for very a long time as I would speak at a fast tempo and in a rush!! Whereas the other person maybe much more calm and relaxed than me, so they might miss what I am saying. They may not share my enthusiasm or maybe just think I am speaking…
