Experience 31 Days of Smilence in August


What is the One Minute Smilence
The one minute Smilence is a simple way for us all to take time out of our busy and stressed out schedule, and spend a few minutes thinking about things that make us smile, and then spend a minute smiling and appreciaiting the fact that so long as we are alive there is hope and many reasons for us to smile.

Why I created the One Minute Smilence
One minute Smilence was created by me Confident Queen. Initially this was something I did for myself at times when I found it hard to even smile because life seemed overwhelming at a time when I was in financial difficulties and just could not see light at the end of the tunnel. I find that by me dedicating some time at the start and end of each day to focus on reasons for me to smile, I started to feel better, and realise that Life is a gift, and that though life has its ups and downs, their is always, always something to make you smile each day.

How to do your One Minute Smilence
In this month of August, I thought it would be a good idea for the next 31 days to take time out each day and do your one minute smilence. Get a note book to write down each day the reasons why you smiled each day. To make it fun why not get 31 blank paper plates and each day write the reasons you smiled on the paper plate and then hang it up so that by the end of each month you can then have all the 31 paper plates hanging up. I bet you will feel good after this. To start, you will need to find a quiet place so that you can focus better. You can do this anytime of the day though I find it better to do first thing in the morning and last thing at night.

Now it’s time for you to do your One Minute Smilence
1.Sit down in a quiet place take time to slowly breathe in and out.
2.Relax and start to recall and say what you are grateful for and thankful for in your life right now (you can write these down if you wish)
3.Now write down on your note book, paper or paper plate, the things that make you smile. You can use pictures and images to help with this.
4.When you have finished, set your timer for a minute and now just spend a minute focussing on things that make you smile and keep smiling for the whole minute .
5.After the minute has gone – just shout excitedly “ WooHoo BoomBoom2
6.You can also take a selfie and post on twitter #oneminutesmilence
7.Now do this everyday for the next 31 days of August
8.As you go our each day remember to collect moments that make you smile and share your smile with as many people as you can.
