And speaking of getting happier, join the 2010 Happiness Challenge ! Start your own happiness project and make 2010 a happier year.
To help people stick with their happiness projects, I’ve set up a sign-up sheet so you can add your name to the 2010 Year of Happiness challenge. It’s worth taking a second actually to sign up; studies show that doing an action, like signing this pledge , will help you hold yourself accountable for your resolutions.
The areas of focus will be:
• January-- Energy
• February-- Love
• March-- Work
• April-- Money
• May-- Mindfulness
• June-- Order
• July-- Spirit
• August-- Fun
• September-- Parenthood
• October-- Friends
• November-- Attitude
• December-- Boot Camp Perfect
Of course, these categories are just my suggestions. You might choose to focus on very different areas for your happiness project.
January 1 is always a good time to make a resolution – 44% of Americans make New Year’s resolutions – so by adding your name now, you’re committed to taking action when January 1 rolls around. You might also consider using the online tools over at the Happiness Project Toolbox (bonus: you can see what other people are doing, which is fascinating.)
Make 2010 a happier year. Come on, get happy.
