3 Good Things!

Even when things seem at their most miserable, we at the Happy Zone always try and cheer ourselves up by looking on the bright side. On my way home from hospital today it was cold, windy and teaming down with rain. I was disgruntled after my consultation with the doctor, my umbrella kept blowing inside out and the hole in my shoe was letting in the rain.

So when I got home, instead of allowing myself to fall into a deep depression, I decided to do what I sometimes do when feeling low. I made myself think of three good, positive things that had happened today. They could be things that I had done, or other people had done or just something happy I'd heard on the news but I tell you what - it wasn't even that difficult! If you really think about it you can always find good, happy things occuring around you each and every day.

Why don't you try it? Let us know what 3 good things happened to you today! If you're on Twitter just tweet your three positive things with the hashtags #3goodthings and #happyzone and share your happy thoughts with the world! You can also comment below or on our Facebook Page.

For the record, here are my 3 good things :
  • Work finally sorted out all the mistakes they'd made with my salary over the last few months and that definately brought a smile to my face when I read my payslip.
  • I have been craving Nestle Walnut Whips (delicious chocolate candy!) but couldn't find any in all the stores I searched in yesterday - but today I found one, bought one and thoroughly enjoyed it.
  • I received a really really sweet email from one of my favourite actresses, the lovely yummy mummy Emily Booth!

Crazy But Cool Ideas!

Sometimes at The Happy Zone we just like to chew the fat and come up with all manner of cute but crazy ideas and schemes that we think would benefit the world - or at least the UK (as that's where we're based)!

So we came up with this grand idea which we think everyone should start promoting and supporting ASAP! Let's all start planting lavender bushes and chamomile flowers in every available space throughout the UK; in gardens, parks, high streets, factories, schools, parks, disused land...everywhere you could possibly think of! The soothing and relaxing aromas and properties of these two plants would soon chill everyone out so much that the crime rate will go down and people will start being more relaxed and nicer to each other.

You think it's crazy? Well we won't know until we try it! Not only will everyone feel more relaxed, it will be great for the environment and could be part-funded by a specially set up charity and the National or Health Lotteries!

Got any wild and crazy ideas that would benefit society and make the world a better place? Drop us an email, comment below or visit our Facebook Page. Or you could tweet us with your cool ideas! You can find us @happyzoneblog.
