HAPPY HABITS:

 

9 practices that grow happy kids

‚Äč

Habits are things we do over and over on a regular basis. We form habits slowly until they become almost automatic. Some habits are good for us, some aren’t.

 

Happy habits are simple things we can do each day to develop habits that are good for us, supporting health and happiness in our brains, bodies and beings.

The 9 happy habits include:

BE KIND

(care, give,

connect + share)

BE THANKFUL

(notice the

little things)

MAKE WISHES

(imagine, dream

+ be hopeful)

EAT REAL FOOD

(fruits + veggies

every day)

CARE FOR FEELINGS

(they are all

important + okay)

GO OUTSIDE

(spend time

in nature)

HAVE FUN

(be silly, laugh, create,

sing, dance + move)

SLOW DOWN

(rest, breathe, flow,

focus + savour)

TRY NEW THINGS

(learn, grow + have a

sense of wonder)

Care for Feelings is placed at the centre because all of the habits care for feelings in different ways - yep, even eating real food.

 

Based on research in positive psychology and ancient philosophy, the happy habits are incorporated into our engaging books, activities, games and materials to help kids build happy skills and form life-long happy habits.

 

Since all habits are formed through learning, enjoying and practicing, the habits of happiness are teachable. Everything we’ve created grows happy habits in ways kids learn best: through hands-on experiences, repetition, play, creativity and storytelling.
