The 100 Happy Days challenge seems to be trending on social media, as many of my Facebook friends are trying it.
According to 100happydays.com, 71 percent of people tried this challenge to be happy for 100 days in a row, but failed for lack of time.
How can you not have time to be happy?
Here’s how the challenge works:
Every day submit a picture with a post of what made you happy.
Post it on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, using the hashtag #100HAPPYDAYS.
Things that make you happy can be anything from a meet-up with a friend to a tasty dessert in a nearby coffee shop, or just a lazy day at home.
The rules of the challenge specify that it is not a happiness competition or a show-off contest. If you try to please or make others jealous with your pictures or posts, you will lose without even starting, and the same goes for cheating.
If you are concerned about the publicity, but still want to do the challenge, you can come up with your own hashtag or send the pictures and posts to email@example.com.
I have to say that seeing what makes others happy, makes me feel happy, too.
I just might try this challenge, as a little happy can really go a long way.
