About The Book – Crown of Smiles

“I was inspired to write Crown of Smiles after recovering from a period of depression, low self-esteem, and confidence. I aim to share with you some of the simple, practical ways I’ve tried over the years to help myself have inner peace and a reason to smile each day. I hope this will inspire and motivate you to keep going, irrespective of some of the challenges life can throw at you, and still have a reason to smile each day.”

 

Praise for Crown Of Smiles:

“Here is an accessible, inspirational little book, simply written, clearly from the heart, about the importance of self-belief, hope, and the courage to turn things around. Crown of Smiles reminds us all how, with self belief, from adversity can come creativity, confidence, and clarity. Read it. You won’t be disappointed.” N. Singh, psychologist

You too can put on your Crown of Smiles every day

When you wake up each morning, or when you’re feeling a bit down, I want you to remember to put on your Crown of Smiles; this can be an imaginary crown, or even better still, why not be creative and make your own Crown of Smiles? As you put your crown on your head, imagine you have a jar of happy oil being poured over your head, and as the oil goes through every part of your body, from the top of your head to the soles of your feet, imagine your body coming alive. You start dancing and smiling and end up saying, “Woo Hoo! Boom Boom! I feel good!” You can also do the One Minute Smilence: think happy thoughts whilst smiling for a minute

Crown Of Smiles will soon be available on Amazon, and directly through my website. For more information, please contact genny@confidentqueen.co.uk. cost £4.99 + 2.99 postage

Shrove Tuesday (known in some countries as Pancake Tuesday) is a day in February or March preceding Ash Wednesday (the first day of Lent), which is celebrated in some countries by consuming pancakes

Today’s Task ( Day 9)  Share your smiley face pancakes with someone!

You can make your own pancakes or buy then, then decorate to make a smiley face and then share some with your friends and families as you enjoy your “smilence” moment eating the pancake.

 

7 Fun facts about pancake day!

  1. The largest pancake ever made measured 15 metres and weighed in at three tonnes – you’ll need a lot of sugar and lemon for that one.
  2.  The most flips anyone has ever done with a pancake is 349 flips in two minutes. That’s ‘flipping’ good!
  3.  Over a lifetime, an average person will eat 7,300 eggs.
  4.  We all have our preferences for pancake toppings but the weirdest pancake toppings have to be sour cream and caviar, ketchup and mustard, peanut butter and ice cream, coco pops and cream, cream cheese and strawberries.
  5.  The Guiness World Record for the most pancakes served in eight hours is 34,818.
  6.  Before baking soda was invented, cooks often used fresh snow as it contained ammonia, which helped the pancakes come out fluffy and soft.
  7.  It is customary in France to touch the handle of the frying pan and make a wish while the pancake is turned, holding a coin in one hand

Put on your Crown of Smiles (Day 8) Your smiley cup of smilence moments

 

  • Welcome to the 8th Day of Crown of Smiles – Your smiley cup of smilence moments

I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s blog

Today’s Task ( Day 8)  Your smiley cup of smilence moments

Two years ago, I started to collect smiley cups which I have at various places in our home/ I also carry a pack of 6 with me each day so that I can give it to people to cheer them up.  The other day I just posted the cup on my friends facebook page and I had a lot of response from her friends who wanted to buy some. So I decided to sell them to help raise funds for my Happiness Project I set up in 2009.

Today’s task – You can either make your own smiley face cup by getting a plain plastic cup and use a  permanent marker pen to draw up a smiley face. You then need to put the cup where you can see it each day. Every day try to write down on a piece of paper things that made you smile or a positives affirmation.  Every now and then take time to read each piece of paper  to lift up your spirits. By the end of the year I am sure your cup will be over filled with lots of moments that made you smile.

If you wish you could also purchase the smiley cups directly from me-

Today’s Task ( Day 7)  Send a card to a friend day.

As I look back at my life, I realise that friends come and go in and out of our lives for a reason and a season. I actually have friends whom we started primary school together and even though we may not physically be with each other, thank God for social media, as we still stay in touch.

So today, why not make a card of smiles and send it to a friend and help them have a reason to smile today and everyday.

One of the things I love to do each day as I go out, is counting the number of people who smile back at me, as it makes me feel great that I have helped to make  someone smile.

As you go smiling, don’t worry if people don’t smile back, as it is quite normal. I even had one lady who asked me what my problem was just because I smiled at her!!

Put on your Crown of Smiles (Day 5) Creating your place of #Smilence

 

  • Welcome to the 5th Day of Crown of Smiles – Creating your place of Smilence

I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s blog

Remember that each day you have to get into the habit of:-

  • Putting on your Crown of Smiles
  • Spend 5 minutes for your Smilence Moments each day
  • Put your box of Smilence in a prominent place or take it around you as a way to boost your Smilence level

 

Today’s Task ( Day 5)  Creating your place of  Smilence

When I am feeling a bit low, I have different places I can go to,  as I believe that sometimes just changing your environment can help you to feel much better.

Our Local Promenade –  When I go to our local promenade, I feel very relaxed as I can sit down, watch the boats go by and as I watch the river,  I spend time imagine myself on a boat going on a cruise to different parts of the world where I meet new people, have new experiences and just have fun. I can also feed the ducks, and make new friends as most times people will just come and sit next to me and start to chat.  In this picture below, I met these two wonderful singers and we had such fun!

Over to you now – Where is your place of Smilence?

Remember its a place you can go to chill out, change your environment and zap up some energy, enthusiasm and passion for life.

I have spoken to a lot of people about this place of  Smilence, and here area few suggestions-

  1. A small area in your bedroom
  2. In your garden
  3. In your car

You could just use your imagination and visualise yourself in different places

 Wishing you  a  peaceful day – May the smile be with you and do let me know how you get on. You can even post picture of your place of  #Smilence. For me this is my other place of #Smilence I visit regularly using my imagination

Celebrate Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day! #bubblewrapappreciationday

There’s nothing quite as fun as popping bubble wrap bubbles.

Bubble-wrap-gift

Whether you’re unpacking a parcel, playing virtual bubble wrap games online, or have gone out to buy bubble wrap especially, Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day is the day to indulge and get popping! Days of the year

bubble-wrap-runway-20151029-10-800x533

Keep calm and wake up early

wakeupearly

Getting up early starts with making changes at night. Example, watching less TV, spending less time on social media etc and get to bed on time – or even ten minutes earlier, so that you can get up with ten minutes to spare in the morning. When you do this, you’ll be shocked at the difference it will make in your life as you spend the first 10 minutes of the morning focussing on things you want to achieve in life and working on developing daily habits which you can then help you to develop daily success habits.

wakeupwithpurpose

Get clarity

When I have a challenge in my life, I find that I can get a better perspective of it, first thing in the morning when I have better mental clarity and fewer distractions. I have always been an early riser and my day usually start at 5am each morning. I guess it is because I really enjoy life and each day I feel each day is a gift.

getgoing

Some ideas of how you could start your day!

  1. As soon as you wake up – Breathe in and out and be grateful and thankful you are still alive and you have a reason to smile
  2. Spend  a minute just listening and enjoying  the stillness of the morning and the sounds of nature,
  3. Pray for energy, strength and courage to face this day and pray for others
  4. Spend time day dreaming about the good experiences live has given you and will continue to give you.
  5. Write down all the things you would like to achieve in life
  6. For each one of the things you want to achieve, write down the obstacles that each one has.
  7. Spend time focussing on how you can try and overcome each obstacle as well as how you can get support to move forward
  8. Now you should have solutions to some of the obstacles
  9. Focus on just one of your goals and then create a plan, which includes things you can do daily to achieve your goals.
  10. Each day, try to do avoid distractions and do things which will help you to succeed. Join in and sing and dance to “ Wake up I feel happy boom boom, and now I am dancing like no one’s watching boom boom” than just spend a minute smiling (One minute smilence)

overtoyou

Over to you

Now it’s your time to use this as a guide and plan that starting tomorrow you will start your day earlier so that you can fuel it with lots of energy, good vibes as you journey through life.

May the SMILE be with you!

Mental Health Awareness Week 11th to 17th May

When you feel you are in dark hole and feel there is no hope, if you lift your eyes up and look up, you will see a small light of hope.
