Day 4 of the 20 days #happygravesham challenge

One Minute Smilence


Happiness is not about permanent positivity or pretending things are fine. It’s about learning to cope well with whatever life throws at us.”

Welcome to our 4th day in our mission to spread happiness by giving people reasons to smile inspite of their challenges in #happygravesham #happykent. We hope you can be part of it. This is all part of the activities to celebrate the United Nations International day of happiness on 20th March 2015.

Review from yesterday

I hope yesterday you were able to either make a happy card or buy one and send it to someone to make them smile and feel good. Yesterday I got 40 year 3 children from one of our local primary school to make up a happy paper plate with smiley faces so that we can take to one of our residential homes to cheer people up. 

Today’s challenge – Take one minute out of your busy day to be grateful and thankful that you are alive and SMILE as you appreciate all the good things in your life right now for at least a minute.

How to do your minute Smilence

You will need a blank paper plate and colouring pencils or markers. You also need something to time yourself for a minute.

Now you are ready

Sit down in a quiet place be thankful that you are alive and think of things that make you smile

Get a paper plate and write down everything that makes you SMILE

Use pictures and images to help with this

When you have finished, set your timer for a minute

Now just spend a minute focussing on things that make you smile and keep smiling for a minute

After the minute has gone – just shout excitedly “ WooHoo”

If you need more help be to be more happier and confident, then contact me
