Fifty Guaranteed Happy Makers

London Eye view

Last week, I went to an event that made me very happy – the nice folks at Getpaidto invited a bunch of bloggers to the London Eye to find out about the launch of their new site.

It was a gloriously sunny, clear day and the views from the London Eye were spectacular – and the champagne and canapés didn’t hurt either.

If you haven’t heard of it, Getpaidto is rather a clever site where you can go before you buy pretty much anything online – and save money. You might earn cash-back, you might get a special discount, or you might earn points in your Getpaidto account, which can be cashed out or turned into gift vouchers for major retailers. It’s a bit of a no-brainer if you can remember to do it, isn’t it?

Getpaidto also conducted research that shows 80% of us love to shop to get happy. It’s painfully true – I’ll admit that buying something new for the house often cheers me up on a crappy day. Or booking a holiday, although for obvious reasons that only works about once or twice a year. But not all cheering up needs to cost a fortune – I asked around some blogging chums are here are 50 simple, quick and inexpensive ways to boost your mood when you’re feeling blue:

    I would like to add – completing a To Do list (obviously don’t make it too long), cooking, an early night with a good book, eating (I’m not really fussy what but I prefer savoury), and not eating and feeling virtuous about it. Wine is also good.

    As I scrolled down this list I was like “Yes! That too! Definitely! Oh, that’s me! I am so wise! Why didn’t I think of that? Yes! This! Running? Oh I don’t think so. What madness is that?!”

    Thanks for including my excellent suggestion!

    I feel like I should use this as a checklist and tick stuff off each week. 🙂

    I love this list – so many little things to do to help chase the blues away. Ten minutes on my own followed by a hug from the kids always works well for me as does the opportunity to sit in a coffee shop eating cake and watching the world go by 🙂
