Leading up to Christmas and into the New Year, I’m sharing one happiness hack a day, so that you can kick start 2019 feeling positive and with the best mindset for creating change.

If Mary Poppins was a life coach she'd be saying, "A spoonful of gratefulness helps the melancholy go down" and she'd be right. Well she's never wrong really, is she? (Side note - can-not-wait-for-MP2!!!!).

Everyone has something they can be grateful for and anyone can do it. It works because it makes you stop and see how good life already is or what good can be found in life, when it doesn't feel good at all.

My partner and I practiced 30 days of gratefulness when our lives felt fragile ad uncertain. We had moved to a new country with no idea how things were going to work out and our worry about money was REAL BIG. This was affecting our relationship and general happiness, at a time when we wanted to be enjoying the sun, the sea and the Sangria.

Finding something to be grateful for on a daily basis, gives you a focus and positive perspective on life and have I already said... it's really EASY.

So watch today's video for a spoonful of how gratefulness can help you and if you loved this - stay tuned.

Hey, I'm Lydia Kimmerling I am MAD, CRAZY, PASSIONATE about helping you to create a life you're super excited to wake up to. Being happy...ish, inspired...ish and fulfilled...ish is never quite enough, is it? When you feel like there is "more" out there for you, it's because there is. A life where you can't remember the last time you worried, stressed or doubted yourself and your friends ask you "What's your secret?" because you GLOW, SPARKLE and SHINE. That can be you and I will show you how. I got my first television job at 17, ran my own restaurant in Panama at 22, taught Hip Hop in Cornwall at 26, was cabin crew for Virgin Atlantic at 28, coached CEO's on confidence at 29, then at 30 took the leap as a certified life & business coach with The International Coaching Federation to launch my very own transformational company called The Happiness Explorer. I am a master of change, so I can tell you that there is NEVER really anything to fear, but has it always been easy? NO! I have blocks, down days and self-doubt too, life doesn't stop throwing you curve balls, it's how you catch the ball and throw it back that changes. Plus, you never know until you try, right? At 32, I now know what the key is to waking up every single day excited about the life you live. It is to know yourself inside and out and to love every part of who you are.The more you know yourself, the more of you there is to love and the more you love yourself, the more you want to give yourself a life you love. The question is…What do you really want?
