Newsletter 9: A Good Week

10 Jun 2011 | Action for Happiness

Is this the beginning of a big cultural shift? We think it's fantastic that so many people are now talking about happiness. They're starting to recognise that it comes less from money or material things and more from great relationships, peace of mind and being part of something bigger.

A Good Week - let's make it happen

Only 10 days to go! We're delighted to be part of A Good Week - a festival of positive and inspiring activities happening from 20-26 June. 
Check out what's going on and how you can get involved.

Giving: Do things for others

Giving is this month's featured theme from our Ten Keys to Happier Living
Helping other people is not only great for them, it also makes us happier too. As our little animated film explains, Doing Good Feels Good.

So why not try one of these actions this week, or make up your own instead!

On a wall near you

It's fantastic to hear how so many people are using our happiness posters  in schools, hospitals, offices and homes. Please keep sharing them with friends and letting us know where you've been putting them to good use!

Get some Headspace

Our friends at Headspace have once again generously offered 20 complimentary tickets to Action for Happiness members for their next mindfulness event on Sat 18 June. Find out more

What do you think?

We're very grateful to our expert supporters who contributed thought-provoking articles this month. What do you think about their ideas?

There's lots of lively discussion about these and many more topics on our Twitter and Facebook  pages, so do join in and let us know your views!

As always, we would love to hear from you so please get in touch:

And finally, please keep spreading the word and doing whatever you can to create more happiness in the world around! It's great having you involved.
