Fun ways to celebrate National I Want You to Be Happy Day! 

As Confident Queen, my mission since 2009 has been to help as many people as I can to have a reason to smile each day through the various activities I run. This is because there was a period in my life when it was all dark and I felt like a bird trapped in a cage with no way out due to some personal challenges I was going through. I am happy that after some time, I had the courage to ask for help from family, friends and various organisations which helped me regain my zest for life. Even just before Christmas I lost my mum and two two other very close family members. Though it has been devastating and for the last 3 months, things have been tough, I am slowly getting my smile back and I continue to go around various organisations spreading laughter and good vibes.

National I Want You to Be Happy Day is here to celebrate the idea that the world is a better place when we all work together to make other people happy. Although its not possible to change someone’s entire life in just a moment, but it’s certainly easy enough to make their day a little brighter by simple gestures  It can make all the difference between having a completely hard day and turning up as a ray of sunshine on their cloudy day.

Scientists have even shown  that when people help others. Oxytocin, dopamine and serotonin are all released in what’s called the “helper’s high”, which is the good feeling  someone gets from helping another person and watching them be happy.

Why I want you to be happy

I want you to be happy  and confident  because I  care about you and want the best for you.   I know  from my own experience that our happiness and confidence can have a positive impact on others around you, creating a more positive and uplifting environment for everyone.

Feeling happy and confident can have many positive benefits. It can improve your mental health and well-being, increase your productivity and creativity, and help you build stronger relationships with others. When you’re happy and confident, you’re more likely to have a positive outlook on life and be able to handle challenges and setbacks in a better way.

Fun things to do to make you feel happy

Say these affirmations our loud a couple of time make sure you mean what you say, you can even use your own.

Create a laughie and send to someone to cheer them up

Power of Positive thoughts

positive quotes

We all have times in our lives when we feel  like giving up and say a lot of negative things to ourselves which if we are not careful can lead us to sadness and depression.

It  during these moments that we have to try and  change our thought pattern and switch to being positive.  Being positive takes a lot of practise so that in time it becomes part of our lifestyle choice.

How I overcame negative thoughts

I remember years ago I was totally consumed by the negative things my ex was saying about me such as  {You are no good, You are a bad mother, no one will want to be with you after I finish with you.} I used to cry so much and on the occasion when my children played up I used to really feel like a bad mother.  I was in a sorry state, but  was somehow determined to do something about it.  I got out my  personal development books and started to read about the power of positive thoughts. I then wrote out positive affirmations  – like  {You are a wonderful mother, You are doing a good Job, You are Loved and Special.} I would read them aloud looking in the mirror and slowly, I started to believe and see myself as that wonderful confident mother. Even on the occasions when I would have negative thoughts, seeing my affirmations on the wall and reading them out loud also helped. I also use to have an elastic band round my wrist, so when I felt negative I would pull it and would remind me to distract from being negative to being positive.


 A useful tool to keep yourself from slipping into negativity as I mentioned earlier is to use external reminders. You can, for example, use written notes posted at places you can’t avoid seeing several times each day – your workspace, fridge and mirrors – or put a bracelet on your wrist.   I find seeing these quotes around me helped to lift my mood back to positivity. You could also have a small box of positive affirmations which you could carry around you every day, and then take time out to read and focus on them.

Method we will use is called “IGROWS” to help us find ways to happier days.

(Issue, Goals, Reality, Options, Willingness and Smiles

IGROWS model is a method of coaching I initially learnt when I did a coaching course at the Coaching Academy. The model was originally developed in the 1980s by performance coach Sir John Whitmore, , have also helped to develop it.

A good way of thinking about the IGROWS Model is to think about how you’d plan a journey (the issue) You decide where you are going (the goal), and establish where you currently are (your current reality). You then explore various routes (the options) to your destination. In the final step, establishing the (will or willigness), you ensure that you’re committed to making the journey, and are prepared for the obstacles that you could meet on the way then the (smiles) is where you will be celebrating your achievements.

Today – we will focus on where you are now and then show you how to create your own Gift of a smile box. So going back to our IGROWS model, we will look at the letter R – which stands for REALITY what exactly is going on in your life right now that is making you sad?

In your book just right down your first thoughts and complete the following–

Activity 1

This is what is happening right now in my life

These are the steps I have taken towards e.g being happier

Gift of a smile Box

Activity 2 – I hope you managed to get your empty shoe box which we are going to use to create your special box. Which you are going to put various items that will make you feel good. (You will see the example in the image on this blog) Example of other things you could put in your box:

A small mirror – to remind yourself that your are unique, special and an original

A rubber band – to remind you that sometimes you have to come out of your comfort zone

A collection of positive affirmations – As you read these, it will help you to have a positive mindset

The idea is that you put the box somewhere you can see it, so that when you are feeling down you can use the items as a pick me up as you also do your instant feel good activity below:

Instant Feel Good

1.Sit down

2.Breathe in slowly and Breathe out Slowly ( do this a couple of times)

3.Say – I am so grateful and happy to be alive to see another day.

4.Think and focus on something that makes you feel happy or my favourite “wake up I feel happy boom, boom, I feel like dancing around boom boom, and now I am dancing line no one’s watching boom, boom”

5.Smile – Just spend a few seconds smiling, and then I want you to give out a couple of big laughs (hahaha)

  1. Get your Gift of a smile box, and make use of the items as you continue to feel good

See you tomorrow and may the smile be with you always.
