21 Days to Happiness
The 21 Days to Happiness Package is about empowering ourselves to make choices in our lives leading to greater joy, happiness and peace – for us and for others. Research strongly suggests that we have a large capacity to determine our own happiness, regardless of external circumstances, and this toolkit is about you taking everyday steps to do just that.
There are two distinct elements to our package:
Movement and Meditation
Each day there’s a video of breathing (five minutes), gentle stretching (five minutes), and meditation (five minutes) for you to follow. The practices change daily, and build over the three weeks. It’s only fifteen minutes, and evidence shows that regularly quietening the mind (which is what our films are all about) will greatly enhance focus, clarity and attention span – as well as rewire the brain to improve your happiness! If instead of stretching, for any reason, you would like to just quieten the mind, then we offer a number of shorter meditations that require no physical movement and allow you to adapt to your ability.
To get stuck in follow our daily Happynesshub Hints, with associated films from Sally. These Hints are practical acts that can take as little as a couple of minutes out of your day, but if focused on, repeated and practised regularly will make a real difference to your life. Sally’s films will add flesh to the exercise and support you in your journey.
So please set aside only 20 minutes each day for the next three weeks and see if you can make a genuine shift in your life. Even if you only follow our Happynesshub Hint daily you will still experience change. Give it a go!

The Happynesshub Team
Some of the days’ Hints will really resonate with you, others may not. Some may give you an ‘aha’ moment where you had no idea you had been doing that. Others will perhaps provide you with surprising evidence how very simple things can genuinely transform your happiness levels.
The key thing, however, is not just finding out what these things are, but putting them into practice and replacing old unhealthy habits for new and healthy ones. This can be hard to do amidst our busy lifestyles, or if you’re poorly, or just exhausted and struggling. But it’s at these times that we most need to implement support mechanisms, however hard.
If you find yourself really short of time, please at least attempt to follow some of our Happynesshub Hints and become aware of how your mind works and how it can govern your emotions and hence happiness levels.
If you are unable physically to follow our fifteen-minute daily video, or you simply do not have enough time, then we urge you to either try our 10-minute breathing-meditation film, or our shorter 5-minute meditation film. The key is to practise daily, even if only for 5 minutes.
We also have a two-minute emergency meditation video. This is intended to be used at those times when life and circumstance are completely overtaking you, and you feel fit to burst. Instead of shouting, panicking or firing off that abrupt email, transport yourself somewhere quiet and take a minute out. See how you feel. Hopefully you will now be in a different state of mind to take positive action, whatever the happening!
The starting point for our Happynesshub Hints is the mind. So no particular level of physical ability is needed for these.
For our daily 15-minute videos, a level of basic physical ability is required for the middle 5-minute stretching-strengthening section. So if in doubt please consult your GP before commencing the 15-minute practice. However, because daily quietening of the mind has been proven to be so beneficial for our mental wellbeing, we have created other films for you to follow if your physical ability is limited. Please feel free to choose between our 10-minute breathing-meditation practice or our five-minute meditation practice only. If you are really pushed for time you can try our two-minute emergency meditation!
We also have 5 new audio meditations for you try daily, depending how much time you have!
Each Happynesshub Hint varies greatly and may take only a few minutes. Sally’s films are a couple of minutes only. But then the key is to see how you can follow this up by incorporating it into your life.
Each full movement and meditation video is approximately 15 minutes in duration. However, if you are really pushed for time you may choose to replace this daily film with a simple breathing-meditation exercise of either 10 minutes duration or a meditation only exercise of five minutes duration. If really pushed we also offer a two-minute emergency meditation, but if possible try to do minimum five minutes a day!
We also have our new audio meditations which vary from 2 to 20 minutes each, so the package is very flexible.
Each daily 15-minute film should be followed in chronological order starting from day 1 continuing to day 21, building as you go. So if you miss a video one day for any reason, just pick up where you left off on the next day, rather than skipping films.
Quietening the mind is something that if repeated DAILY will make a real difference. The repetition is important, so we would urge you to at least follow one of our different meditations every day, even if you are unable to do the full 15-minute film.
With the Happynesshub Hints the order is less important. They are more of an offering for you to observe how your mind works, and to see, if you put them into regular practice, how shift can occur. So feel free to dip in and out, over whatever time period, but ideally if you can follow for the 21 days that would be great!
