I will be updating this post each day for the next 14 days with the challenges and my successes/failures.
Please see the bottom of this post for the latest daily challenges.
Please see the comments below for my successes/failures or visit our Facebook Page!
How are you going? Would love to hear your experiences in the comments!
If you have read this week’s Life and Happiness Survey results, you would have seen that more than half of the responses indicated that they are currently feeling unhappy in life. This just amazed me more than half is just a crazy figure! I can understand that some people are going through difficult circumstances, but for more than half the people that responded to indicate that they are unhappy is very concerning.
After seeing these results, it is so clear that there is no better time than now to change your life and also change the world. I couldn’t have thought of a better time to run another Happiness Challenge. The good thing is, you don’t have to wait… it starts tomorrow!
Ready for our Next Happy Challenge?
I’m springing this one on you fast!
I am super-excited to be letting you all know about the 14-day Kindness Challenge, starting from tomorrow, the 1st November and going all the way through for 2 weeks straight until the 14th November!
A few weeks ago on The Start of Happiness, I launched our very first Happy Challenge, where we were required to perform Random Acts of Kindness for 7 days straight. The rules were simple:
- Perform at least one random act of kindness per day, for the next 7 days.
- You cannot perform a random act of kindness for the same person twice (well, you can, but you also need to ensure you do a random act of kindness for 7 different people!)
- You cannot perform the same random act of kindness twice.
Our good friend, Celes Chua who you might remember from our post: 27 Experts Share Their Thoughts on Starting Happiness in Their Own Lives is taking the Random Acts of Kindness Challenge to a whole new level.
Based out of Singapore, she has already got more than 500 participants from around the Globe registered and local media attention.
Knowing Celes and her work, I couldn’t resist but want to help her out and build momentum for the challenge. It links in absolutely perfectly with the Happy Challenges we conduct here at The Start of Happiness, and is the perfect evolution to the Random Acts of Kindness Challenge we conducted in September.
Recapping What You Can Expect from our Happy Challenges
What you can expect from the Happy Challenges:
• Find out what truly makes you happy
• Make a difference in the life of others
• Try new experiences
• Challenge yourself
• Build connections with others
• Enjoy your life
• Have loads of fun!
Momentum is a beautiful thing. Start the Happiness by taking action and feel the momentum start to build.
How is the 14 Day Kindness Challenge different?
The good thing is, Celes as one of our experts, has already gained media attention and has a large number of participants.
The rules are similar to our Random Acts of Kindness challenge, however it is for a longer period and there will be individuals from all over the world blogging about their experiences.
And to set an example and ensure I’m going to take action, I’ll be one of them!
I highly encourage you to also take part. Celes is asking people to blog about their experiences, however as the challenge commences tomorrow, I understand this may be difficult for many of you to setup in time.
Instead, I highly encourage you to take part and write about your experiences in the comments section below!
If you haven’t already, make sure you join The Start of Happiness to ensure you are regularly kept up to date with the highest quality content for living a successful, happy and fulfilling life.
Join The Start of Happiness Facebook page where I will be providing my daily updates and I hope you can too.
I will be providing a weekly wrap-up as a blog post here at the half-way mark after 7 days, and a full wrap-up at the end of the challenge after 14 days.
Get excited, get prepared, and I’m looking forward to Starting the Happiness with you!
