Happiness Happens Month

You all made me so happy coming in to visit me at the library all summer that I want to continue the happiness because you can't have too much HAPPY!  There is a Secret Society of Happy People who have deemed the month of August to the Happiness Happens Month.  During the month of August, focus on doing things that make you and others happy.  Here are some ideas:

  1. Toast in Happiness Happens Month on August 1st with pink lemonade!  Why pink lemonade?  Because Happy People know how to turn lemons into lemonade.  
  2. Use the hashtag #HappinessHappens when posting anything happy on FB, Twitter, Instagram or SnapChat.
  3. Pass out SILVER kisses because not-so-secretly happy people have a way to find the silver lining in the darkest of clouds.
  4. Make a Happy Treasure Chest.  Get a box and make it look uniquely happy.  Fill it with things that bring a smile to your face, like photos, cards, ticket stubs, jokes, music, small toys, anything that makes you smile.
  5. Draw a picture to make someone else happy.  Moms, dads, grandparents, aunts and uncles love to get drawings from their favorite little people.
  6. Come to the library to check out your favorite book, movie, or video game.  Play on our computers, do a puzzle or play a board game.
  7. Call your friend and take a bike ride to the park.
  8. Have a small party with your friends in the backyard.  Turn on the sprinkler or have a water balloon fight.
  9. Make cookies.  Cookies always make people happy!
  10. Check out a Museum Pass from the library and go on an adventure with family and friends!
There are so many things to do to make you happy.   I just gave you ten possibilities and I know you can think of many more.  So make August your happy month.  And why not continue that feeling onto September, October, November.....
