Life Upgrade Targeted:

  1. Spreading more kind words to ourselves and everyone around us, this is essential for our well-being and creating a happier life.
  1. Why every day for 1 month? We need to consciously and repetitiously add positive thoughts into our lives to overcome our hardwired habits of thinking, creating a lasting change.

“No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world.

-Robin Williams-

Challenge yourself to pimp your happiness levels by adding more kind words into your day, because doing something for 30 Days is a great way to form a new positive habit

 

How?

1) Carry a little notepad

2) Set a Target. How about 10? Then anywhere, any time in each day, consciously remember to take time and say some kind words; to yourself, to your family, friends, strangers, an animal, trees, the earth, who-ever you feel. Write a quick note each time.

2) Post on the group page about your experiences and use your positive energy to help inspire others to try the challenge, and support them in their journey. Please post either your kind words, any effects the challenge is having on your thinking/life, or just an update on how you are getting on. 

3) Lost for inspiration? Ask for ideas and support on the event page, we are here to support each other
