Action for Happiness Over 50s Lifestyle

Time for ‘Meaningful May’ – Action for Happiness

May 1, 2023

May is here! We are well on the way towards mid year and it really only seems like yesterday we were celebrating a New Year. Life can become so hectic that we live by ‘just going through the motions’ and not really appreciating life.

We search for ways to put more meaning into our life – to have a purpose, a reason to get up each day. The Action for Happiness calendar for May has put the focus on being more meaningful.

When we rush through life it is easy to lose the meaning and we can become unfulfilled and always looking for something but not sure what that ‘something’ is. Putting the focus on giving meaning to all that we do for ourselves and others is a great place to start and the Action for Happiness has some great ideas.

I particularly like Day 21

Look up at the sky – we are all part of something bigger

Here is the calendar which you can download and use to help you find more meaning in your life.

    What a great theme for May – I love the idea of being intentional and positive in our interactions (with others and with ourselves).

      Hi Leanne, I agree with you re the theme for May. We are almost halfway through the year and life is probably wearing everyone down so the timing of the calendar and the reminder to bring more meaning to life is perfect.x

    I love these tips Sue, and some of them are so simple but so effective at the same time. Thanks for sharing these monthly calendars with us all.

      Thanks, Deb. I like the calendars for the prompts and usually they are all very doable. We just need a reminder occasionally. xx
