Learning Challenge: Happiness Jar, Part 1

I’ve heard of people keeping a gratitude journal where they write down a few things they are grateful for every day, but I’ve never tried it. This upcoming week, I’m going to start the happiness jar challenge: Every day I will write down something that made me happy and place it in a jar (I will be using a coffee mug).

I plan on writing my note at the end of every day when I’m getting ready for bed. I’ll place the mug on my sink counter so I remember it. I’ll write down my note, fold it up, and place it in mug.

At the end of the week, I’ll pull out the notes, read them, and evaluate how the exercise changed my week. I’m going into this optimistically. I think the happiness jar is going to help me appreciate little, good things that happen even when a day seems bad. I hope it helps me have a more positive attitude every day, and I’d really like to keep it up long-term, if it helps. I also think it’s going to help me get rid of the hundreds of sticky notes I have. 

And now, inspirational pictures!

  1. Hi Erin! I saw this spam comment show up; I am not an expert with the WordPress filters (it works very differently than Blogger), but of course you can just delete any spam comments that come your way. A few of them slip through Blogger sometimes too. 🙂
