Optimistic October - Happiness Calendar
Rating

"Especially when things are feeling a bit tough, it can help to set some goals. Making goals achievable and ensuring that you have a few short term as well as longer term, more ambitious goals helps us feel we're making progress. It doesn't matter if your goal for the day is something really small, the important thing is to give yourself the opportunity to feel like you've achieved something and to celebrate that! This month's calendar is full of ideas to help you think about how you can put this into practice."

You can get daily notifications and reminders for the happiness calendar right to your phone! Search "action for happiness" in the Apple and Google Play store to add the app to your phone or device!
