A Daily Happy Wellness Project

A few years ago, I did a wellness project in honor of Mental Health Awareness for the month of May. I basically posted a snapshot to Insta Stories every day of something that made me happy. At the beginning of 2021, I decided to take that gratitude experiment, and expand into a year-long daily exercise.

Daily dose of happy How-To


Want to join me on my Daily Dose of Happy wellness project? Here’s how:


  • Create an album in your phone called Daily Dose of Happy
  • Every day, snap a photo of something that makes you happy. It can be anything from a smell, to something in nature to a person or movie
  • Add the photo to your Daily Dose of Happy album
  • {Optional} Upload the photo to Instagram, tagging #dailydosehappy to share your happiness with others
  • Every night before you go to bed, take a look at the album and soak in the gratitude of what allowed you to enjoy these mini doses of happiness every day

I’ve tried various forms of gratitude practices over the years. When I write down what I’m grateful for, it generally ends up being the same: family, friend, home and health. But I realized when I photographed what makes me happy, my gratitude list expanded. Some days, it might be a walk with a friend that makes me happy, which means I’m grateful for sunshine, fresh air and the ability to walk. Other days it might be the smell of fresh coffee that makes me happy, which means I’m grateful for a lovely home and the financial stability to have my Nespresso machine. Other times, it’s seeing the sunrise or sunset, which means I’m grateful to be alive and live in such a beautiful city.

I’ve been taking pictures every day this month. I save them to an album in my phone. Starting today, I’m going to share them on Insta Stories, too. Personally, I find seeing or hearing about what makes other people happy, bring a smile to my face as well. So I’d love for you to join me on my happiness journey! Just tag #dailydosehappy on Instagram and I’ll share your doses of happiness, too!

    Laser vision correction can be recommended for those who have reached the age of 18. However, the final decision on the possibility of the procedure is made by the doctor, taking into account the data on the state of the visual system of each individual patient.

    It’s amazing. In a healthy body-a healthy mind! But we need to work on this regularly, because our spiritual and physical health are closely interrelated. In connection with the pandemic, I was worried about stress and unnecessary experiences for a long time. In this blog I found something that could help me.
