A Weekly Dose of Happy Issue 1

Hi, welcome to the first edition of “A Weekly Dose of Happy” from HappyMonks. Here is a list of 5 things to help you start the week off with a little happiness! Enjoy!

 
Article:

People talk about “happiness” and “being happy” all time. How many times have your heard someone say, “My goal is to be happy”? But what does “being happy” really mean? I found this article on Happify.com that explains it better than I ever could: What is Happiness, Anyway? 

Recipe:

Over the holidays, I ate A LOT. Anything I wanted. And I was loving it! So, when January 1st rolled around, I wasn’t ready to give up all the goodness. But once February 1st approached, I realized it was time to get back on track. One way I get my diet back on track is to cut down on my sugar intake as much as possible. To do this, I turn to Danielle Walker’s Chia Almond Pudding Parfait. It’s dairy free, gluten free and processed sugar free. I know, sounds great. But I promise it is! And it’s the perfect treat- making both you and the scale happy! Chia Almond Pudding Parfait 

Book Recommendation:

I love to read. Nothing makes me happier than finding a good book I can’t put down.  Recently I read, “The Bookshop on the Corner”, by Jenny Colgan and loved it. It’s a sweet story about a librarian who loses her job, buys a van and transforms it into a bookmobile in a sleepy village. Give it a try! “The Bookshop on the Corner”,by Jenny Colgan


Product recommendation:

One thing I am really trying to focus on this year is gratitude. I think it’s important to focus on all the things you have, instead of all the things you don’t have. It’s a great reminder of how lucky you really are. I decided I wanted to do this by keeping a gratitude journal so I could look back on my entries throughout the year. So, next step was finding the perfect journal and, of course, it had to be cute. I found this adorable journal on Amazon and it never fails to put a smile on my face! The Perfect Journal
