Woman Shares Sweet Way To Recall Happy Memories And Bring Joy In 2020

Woman Shares Sweet Way To Recall Happy Memories And Bring Joy In 2020

Sometimes it's the smallest things in life that bring us the most joy. But often, it's easy to forget those little acts of kindness that can brighten our day.

In a bid to spread positivity and focus on the good, one woman has created a Happiness Jar - filled with joyous memories from the previous year - which she opens and reads every January.

Sharing her idea on Instagram, Stacey Fell explained she started the tradition five years ago.

At the beginning of every new year, she opens the Happiness Jar to recall her memories, before starting the tradition again.

"It's such a heart warming and positive look back at the previous year," she explained.

"I fill it with scraps of paper throughout the year with ANYTHING that made me happy in that moment, big or small it could be a compliment, an amazing meal, an achievement, a beautiful sunset, a time you laughed so much you thought you might pee yourself.

"On New Year's Day I always tip out the jar and re-read the memories and then start all over again."

Stacey explained you can also include a friend's happy memories too - as long as it's brought you joy, in it goes!

If (like us) January is your least favourite month, it's a great way to boost positivity for the year ahead.

Stacey reminded followers that the jar can be filled with whatever memories you like, pointing out that it's all about *your* happiness.

Some of her followers revealed they had been inspired to try the sweet idea, with one explaining she'd been creating her own Happiness Jar for the past three years.

Another pointed out "there is always something to be grateful for" and said she would also be starting a jar this year.

We're officially inspired. Off to buy a Kilner Jar we go!
