A bit of time off from work this week and I'm thinking about happiness, contentment and other such things. Seeing some very special small people open Christmas presents with such joy on their faces was a real treat, particularly as it's not something many adults still experience, no matter how much money they spend on themselves. I was thinking about happiness and how people can 'chase' happiness or contentment, through experiences, substances or buying stuff (boots for me!). Yet perhaps people will only be as happy as they decide to be - nothing to do with how much they have, what they eat, drink or do. Once this is realised, and that you decide to make this moment happy, it will increase the chances of the next moment being happy too. Is happiness, therefore, a skill that can be learnt and practised, just like learning to drive or a play an instrument ? I'd love to hear what you think.
By the way, I got a hilarious book for Christmas - 'The Ladybird Book of Mindfulness'. Short and very funny! Highly recommended.
Finally, why not book your place on the next mini retreat on 16th January 2016? We'll be focusing on learning to 'switch off' effectively, for a healthier body and mind. A great start to the new year!
