The Happiness Planner. It may sound strange I know – how can you plan happiness? My hubbie asked me that very question when I told him about this for the first time. But the Happiness Planner does exactly what it says on the tin, it gives you a way to attract happiness into your life. When I came across the Happiness Planner in one of my favourite shops, Moss Cottage, I immediately loved the idea and ordered one straight away.
For those of you who read my earlier post on vision boards and the power of positive thinking, you will know that this is right up my street. Positive thinking has helped me achieve so much over the past few years and I would encourage anyone who’s sceptical to try it out for one month and see what happens.
By focussing on the good and the positive every day, you are attracting positive things into your life. If you imagine yourself having or achieving something and focus every day on having or doing it, you will get it. I’m an ordinary living, breathing example of that. And when I discovered that there was a diary to help you achieve this, I instantly began researching to find out more.
The Happiness Planner was created by Mo Seetubtim, the creator of the blog Brandmentalist. Inspired by the power of positivity and positive thinking, as well as her love of stationery, she created the Happiness Planner to give people a way to focus on what they want, what they love and what makes them happy in a diary format.
There are two versions of the Happiness Planner, a 100 Day Planner which is undated, and a full year planner dated to each specific year. I decided to go with the 100 Day Planner initially to see how I get on, and also secretly because I just love the super cute aqua blue colour! They do come in lots of different colours though if you’re not an aqua person like me.
As I try my best to practice positivity and mindfulness every day, I’m really excited to give this a go. Writing things down really helps you to think about what you want (and don’t want), and keeps your mind focussed.
I plan on starting my diary next week so I’ll keep you posted on how I’m getting on.
