At Bright Copper Kettles CIC, we're all about spreading a little happiness everyday. We focus on the 'good stuff' in care homes and other areas of care for older people. Personally, I believe that sharing these stories can help people to identify what they can put into the gap (where it exists) rather than causing up-roar and upsetting the whole apple cart.
Well imagine my joy a couple of months ago when I discovered the Action for Happiness website. I know, I'm only 3 years late to this party, but better late than never as they say.
In case you haven't heard about this website before, it was launched by the Dalai Lama and encourages you to take action to make the world a happier place. Mindfulness is very much in vogue at the moment, but research shows that it can change the way our brains work, this website invites you to join them movement and you can even take a course to learn how you can take action for a happier world.
This month the website has launched Altruistic August and we challenge you to join in.
