Appreciating Windowsills is a simple game to reduce anxiety by interrupting negative or repetitive thought patterns, replacing them with positive ones that make you feel safer and more connected to the world.
By thinking of 3 things to appreciate about easily overlooked details of everyday life (such as windowsills), it provides a playful first step into mindful awareness and enjoyment of the present moment. Our dedicated web page explains the game and the back story in more detail.
The Happiness Calendar provides a free space for you to remember 3 moments each day that you enjoyed, building a cloud of positive memories that appear like stepping stones of happiness throughout your life. These are often small things such as the warmth of your clothes, the smell of clean air after rain, the sound of leaves rustling in the breeze, or the unexpected glimpse of a bird in flight.
This habit of noticing what is pleasant in the present moment reduces anxiety, builds resilience, and prevents thoughts from fixating on the difficult experiences of life. Instead you gain a broader, more balanced view that helps you to cope with the inevitable ups and downs of your experience.
‘SHIFT’ is an online life coaching model that you are free to explore at your own pace, and return to edit at any time. By focusing on strengths that you already have and what the Happiness Calendar has highlighted as the things that make you feel positive, it helps you explore which small shifts in your thoughts or actions will help you to build a more calmer, happier life.
Simply upload a photo of your food into ‘Nourish’, the free mindful eating food diary, then put your phone down and enjoy what you are eating! Afterwards, go back to the photo and complete a couple of quick reflections about how you felt, both physically and emotionally.
Photos are automatically timed and dated, so that you can easily start to see connections between what you eat or drink and how you feel. This gives you the awareness to start experimenting with any changes that you may like to make: and if you are being supported by a health professional, you can create a read-only link on your laptop week-to-a-view option so that they can see your photos and offer additional ideas and suggestions.
