About the Happy Book
This book is for you to write in, about
the many things that made you happy —
Take two minutes everyday,
To write down the joyful things
that made you happy
One day you will enjoy looking back,
To see what makes you happy now.
Whenever you feel happy - no matter how
Large, or small, your happiness is ...
Write it down in your Happy Book.
You are responsible for your happiness.
So ... When things go wrong and
you feel sad, sick, or sorry,
get our your Happy Book
to enjoy seeing pages of your happiness.
The bright colours in the fabric
and feel the lovely texture of the cover
with your hands.
Stimulate the super-sensory areas
in your hands that cause
the release of serotonin in your brain.
A flood of endorphins will be released
into your bloodstream
and your mood will be enhanced.
This will make you feel so much happier!

Choose something from the list to do,
to change your mood and make you Happy too.
