to Promote Happiness
The following are techniques
you can use within your organisation to relieve stress or promote
a happy attitude in your work environment.
your workplace a happy environment to work in?
Do you see a lot of
miserable faces everyday, dragging themselves around the office,
or merely functioning with no light behind the eyes?
This technique (or
game) is one which can lighten the load and lift everyone's energy.
First you'll need a
badge - something bright and cheerful looking. Feel free to download
one of the images on his page (or get creative and design your
own) and use it to make yourself a "Happy Person Badge".
you have your badge, give it to the person who looks the most
The rules are simple:
1) The person must
wear the badge all day.
2) No-one must saying
anything negative to that person while they are wearing the badge
and it works even better if people can find positive things to
say to them. They basically have a whole day of "positive"
energy directed at them.
3) At the end of the
day, the now "Happy Person" chooses the next recipient,
based upon who they think needs it the most.
works best where everyone within the group knows the rules, but
questions like "why are you wearing that badge?" will
quickly bring the opportunity to enlighten others that you meet
along the way.
Have a happy day!
