Are You Ready for The Next Happiness Challenge?

Monday, January 27th, 2014

Well, The Happiness Challenge I created with Glamour.com is still going strong. And I’m so grateful to all of you who have commented and Tweeted and sent me notes about how it’s going for you. Nothing makes me happier than hearing you’ve been inspired to live a better life.

Today, we just posted Challenge #4! Each challenge is built around the idea that if you embrace all the best aspects of yourself and your life in a balanced way, you will end up feeling stronger, more loving, more confident, more fulfilled and happier all-around. 

If you’re just starting today and want to take the challenge on (do it!), here are the challenges so far.

Challenge #1: Bravery

Challenge #2: Self-worth

Challenge #3: Independence

Today’s Challenge #4: Generosity

Next week is the final challenge—and the sweetest and the easiest of all.

It’s not too late to join in, because there’s no such thing as being too late for happiness. Every single day, it’s up to us if we want to embrace a happy, fulfilled life in the small moments we face, minute after minute, hour after hour.

This is your year, remember. So take the steps to show life you mean it.

Try My Second Happiness Challenge!

Monday, January 13th, 2014

Well, it’s now Week #2 of the Happiness Challenge I’m doing with Glamour.com. I don’t know if you tried the first mission that was all about independence, but it’s not too late to join in. Either way, my second mission is up and ready for action!

This mission is all about self-worth. And if you have your phone on you and two minutes to spare, you can complete this mission right now. It’s a small and simple-sounding step, but it can have huge positive repercussions in your life. You deserve the best people around you and to be treated like the amazing person you are, right? Then do this happiness challenge and prove it!

This is your year, remember. So take the steps to show life you mean it.

Start My Happiness Challenge!

Tuesday, January 7th, 2014

The countdown is on for my new book, The Happy Life Checklist! It will be on shelves February 4. But I wanted to get the happy going a little early with a fun something I’m really excited about!

I created a month-long Happiness Challenge with glamour.com. For five weeks, I’m going to offer one new challenge a week. If you complete each week’s mission, you will feel more adventurous, less stressed, fulfilled, confident, joyful, kick ass and all-around happy. Sounds good, right?  Then join me in the #happinesschallenge! Seriously, I’m going to do it right along with you.

You’ll find your first mission at glamour.com. (And next Monday, you’ll get challenge #2.) Check it out and tell me there if you’re up for the fun, and how you think you might complete your first challenge—then share the challenge with your friends! If you take it on, share your plans with me on Facebook, or tweet me at @datingoptimist on Twitter, or Instagram your plans with me @amyspencerla, or Vine me a video @amyspencer on what you plan to do.

However you join in the #happinesschallenge, do it! Your life is no small thing. You can make big changes by taking little steps like this along the way. Make this your year.

So what do you think? Are you ready to get happy?
