Improve Your Mood - Can You Bottle Happiness?

"I love the recycling aspect of the ‘Travel Journal’ activity - at last something to do with all those leaflets and postcards I can’t resist picking up wherever I go. It actually made me feel focused and productive, rather than guilty about cluttering up the house with pamphlets!"

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
