What if I told you that in ten days, you get to make your life a little happier? Today, I’m inviting you to commit a few moments every day, for ten days, to things that make you feel happy to be alive. Like learning a new word, getting up earlier for breakfast with a friend, indulging in your favourite perfume (like the new MEXX Life is Now, that we’re giving away at the end of the Checklist!), or having a crazy dance party in the morning.
Life is now!
As we’re moving into summer, it’s time to decide how you want the next few months to be. Will it be the familiar routine of work, Netflix and naps? Or are you open to trying something new?
Let me be clear, you don’t need a new version of you. And there’s no such thing as a quick recipe for happiness. The challenge we’ll be doing at CHAPTER FRIDAY is simply about creating little moments of joy. It’s about letting go of the past and not sweating tomorrow – it’s about appreciating what’s here. Don’t wait until Friday. Start your weekend on Monday. Because life is now. With that in mind, me and my team have been working all weekend on creating an awesome list for you (Ok, and a little for us)… and it’s here!
The Happy Checklist… are you in?
In the next ten days, starting now, me and the CHAPTER FRIDAY team are crossing off ten point of the summery Happy Checklist. I’d love to do this together, and see how we all feel at the end of the ride, so I’m inviting you to do the same! Simply print out the list, hang it up and see how far you come. What’s to lose, really? First up: write someone a handwritten card. Because it’s so nice to receive a sweet surprise and nobody writes cards anymore, everybody just texts.
Check, check, check! Choose one thing from the list every day
Every day, for the next 10 days, you get to follow our progress on Instagram. As a matter of fact, we just checked the first thing off! and at the end of the ride, I’ll write about what it was like to set aside time to create happiness. It’s something we hardly ever set aside time for in our hectic schedules, but even just the idea is getting me excited.
We’d love to see what you make of it and say Thank You
I’d love to see what you make of this checklist – and will keep track of whoever is doing this with us via #lifeisnow. We’ll be sending out perfume bottles to a bunch of you guys participating as a little Thank You – and one of you will win a big, beautiful bag of my personal happy-makers including my favourite snacks, notebook, a personal letter and a beautiful bottle of the newMexx Life is now perfume. A giving is receiving kind of thing – talk about a full circle moment!
