What is happiness to you? To me it’s the feeling of peace and calm, it’s being comfortable, it’s having the time to sit in my garden and be with my plants, it’s so many more things and there are so many different types of happiness. But, am I doing even one of these a day? Are you doing things that make you happy everyday?

No? That’s why we have a 30-day happiness challenge just for you. We will give you 30 daily happiness challenges, all you have to do is complete these challenges, and trust me the results are going to make you want to do more of such happiness challenges.
