Can positive, happy feelings really improve health and promote healing? Welcome to the launch of The Pollyanna Plan

I know if I don’t announce my plan to the world, I’ll never get around to doing it.

So, here we go…. (drum roll)…. the launch of The Pollyanna Plan.

A little background: I have been ill/sick/unwell, whatever you want to call it, pretty much most of my life in one way or another. But for the last 6 years, my health has deteriorated and things have been tough. I’ve been unable to work, socialise or lead a “normal life.” In fact, most days I am too unwell to leave the house or do much at all.

But, enough about that, because I have a plan! Inspired by a wonderful book I read recently, called Excuse Me Your Life is Waiting: The Astonishing Power of Positive Feelings by Lynn Grabhorn and also by the film Julie & Julia, I have set myself the ultimate challenge, which I have named “The Pollyanna Plan” after the literary character, Pollyanna, who always looks for the best in every situation. I want to find out if positive, happy feelings really can improve health and promote healing.

So, The Pollyanna Plan goes something like this:

  • 365 days – yep, I’m committing to doing this for 1 whole year. Yikes!
  • 365 reasons to FEEL glad/happy/joyful – that’s 1 reason every single day for 1 year, regardless of what life throws at me. Double yikes!

Easier said than done, I’m sure, but I’m a girl who thrives on a challenge and likes a plan. I’m hoping that I will inspire some of you to join me along the way.

Let the fun and happy feelings begin!

    In case you’ve been wondering how The Pollyanna Plan came about, here is my first ever blog post from January 24th 2013. 🙂

    Two and a half years on, I’m able to say for certain that YES, positive, happy feelings really can improve health and promote healing. I’m the living, breathing proof. Yippee! 😀
