As a way of helping me to lift up my mood when I feel a bit down and depressed, I created the "One Minute Smilence" which simple means think happy thoughts whist smiling for a minute. I hope you too can include this as regular daily routine especially I find first think in the morning and before I go to bed at night. It's ok when you start if you cant do this for a minute the whole objective is for you to try and take time out to smile each day.
What you need to do your One Minute Smilence at home/work/etc
* A quiet place where you can sit
* A note pad or plain paper, pen and coloured pencils
* Images of people or experiences that make you smile eg holiday snaps
How to do your One Minute Smilence
1.Find a quiet place to sit and take time to slowly breathe in and out 7 times
2.Get your note pad or a plain sheet of paper and write down or draw images of people, and experiences that make you smile.
3.Set your timer for a minute
4.Now just spend a minute focussing on the things that make you smile and keep smiling for the whole minute.
It's ok when you start if you cant do this for a minute the whole objective is for you to try and take time out to smile each day.

6.After the minute has gone – just shout excitedly “ WooHoo BoomBoom”
