Improve Your Mood - Can You Bottle Happiness?

"Using the ‘Travel Journal’ activity I've made a journal of all my days out in the last few months, and it is currently one of my most treasured possessions. It somehow means more than photos as it’s so personal - I've spent time and care on it and every corner of every page means something to me."

What next?

  • Add to your happiness bottle some or all of the following, or think of your own: 


  • Something that makes you smile
  • Your favourite joke
  • Inspirational quotes
  • A compliment that someone has given you
  • Something that you have done well
  • A strengths of yours
  • Something you have achieved
  • Delicious words – your favourite-sounding word, tasty words that your tongue likes to enunciate!
  • Something that inspires you
  • Qualities of someone you admire


  • Fill in a Reflective Diary at the end of the month recording what you thought of the exercise
