Create your own happiness bottle

Can you bottle happiness?

 

Print off instructions here.

 

Tip:

To brighten your happiness bottle you could decorate the outside of it using wrapping paper, coloured card or by covering in your own hand-decorated papers. (You could use our 'Create Your Own Collage Papers' activity or 'Taking Rubbings' activity to create unique papers for your bottle)

 

Step 1:

  • Start by writing on a piece of paper (a quarter of A4 is a good size), write a short message to yourself describing something or someone that lifted your spirits today

 

Step 2:

  • Each day for a month, take a square of paper and write a short message to yourself describing something or someone that lifted your spirits that day. Fold up the message and place in the container

 

Step 3:

  • At the end of the month read all the messages, looking for any ‘themes’ running through your ‘happiness triggers,’ so you can arrange to have more of those triggers in your life.  Did the exercise help you shift your focus from negative to positive?
