We live in times when super-busy schedules have become something to boast about. While the speed of life increases, there is less and less time to enjoy the moment that you are in. The ability to appreciate the moment, the environment and yourself in it, is the base for the bridge towards long term happiness of any human being.
There is an increasing amount of evidence that being grateful and mindful of your surroundings leads to greater happiness and wellbeing. I finished my 100 days at the weekend and have been posting my pictures on twitter – it has been an enjoyable and interesting experience. One particularly grim, wet, Yorkshire day I was working from home wondering what was going to be my happy moment and this card popped through the letterbox from a friend Georgina in Australia..
I have definitely been more aware of things around me since I’ve been doing my 100 happy days.. clouds, colours, scenery, food and nature have popped up a lot in my photos and it has been lovely to have a record of them and consciously appreciate them.
