Be honest. Have you heard of the new creation in town called ‘Happiness Club’? I am up for anything that gets my heart ‘singing’…
There is an interesting article in this month’s Psychologies magazine about ‘Create your own Happiness Club’… c’mmon, is it possible? Lets dive in and understand it a bit better; its gotta be a good thing!?
The number of Happiness Club founded by Psychologies readers is 798 counting.
What’s in a Happiness Club?
A book club-style gathering in your own home where you invite friends along to discuss how you can put happiness – your own and other people’s- at the heart of your life philosophy. Psychologies is inviting people to create their own club. The club will be supported by the charity Action for Happiness. The whole purpose is to create a happier and less self-centred world for everyone, with far fewer people suffering from mental health problems and far more people feeling good, functioning well and helping others.
Questions to discuss at your Happiness Club
- When did you last enjoy learning something new? What did you do?
- What frustrates you most about learning something new?
- When was the last time you felt a sense of ‘flow’ or being ‘in the zone’ and what did it feel like?
- In the past, what impact has learning something new had on the rest of your life?
- What can you realistically commit to learning this month?
