“We’re all convinced we’re too busy to do it, and that’s no accident. Our culture values busyness – it is how we measure goodness. Play is indispensable to human progress and good for individuals. A culture that encourages it will enjoy cumulative benefits. Denmark – officially the happiest country on earth – is an example. Flexible work and affordable childcare are the norm, which means more free time. In addition, there is greater gender equality and a work-to-live culture that includes the expectation that people should pursue private interests.

Recall the moments that made you Smile in 2015
2015 has been a year when we had moments that made us cry and moments that made us smile. As we come towards the end of the year, I suggest we take time out just for a minute to recall the moments that gave us hope and made us smile. This I hope will help you to be more positive, feel confident and have hope for a better 2016 filled with more happy moments.
What you need to do your One Minute Smilence
* A quiet place where you can sit
* A note pad or plain paper, pen and coloured pencils
* Images of people or experiences that made you smile eg holiday snaps
How to do your One Minute Smilence
1.Find a quiet place to sit and take time to slowly breathe in and out 7 times
2.Get your note pad or a plain sheet of paper and write down or draw images of people, and experiences that made you smile.
3.Set your timer for a minute
4.Now just spend a minute focussing on the things that make you smile and keep smiling for the whole minute.
5.After the minute has gone – just shout excitedly “ WooHoo BoomBoom” and go share smile with someone
Remember to take time out on a regular basis to do your One Minute Smilence
You can also take a Smilefie and post on twitter using #oneminutesmilence
Wishing you a Happy New Year and May the SMILE always be with you!
