Guess what today is?? Exercise!
A crowdfunder for the Museum of Happiness was launched.
It is in the United Kingdom, however.
I sure wish one would take place on this side of the pond, here in the United States.

As a recreational therapist, you are no doubt regularly looking for enjoyable and meaningful activities for your clients to succeed in achieving their therapeutic goals.
Whether working with clients or even co-workers, a new game might make an awesome addition to your collection of tools!
Choose Happiness @ work is more than just a game; it’s a tool that can solve morale, motivation, and teamwork problems to help individuals and teams thrive at work.
While the game’s creator, Scott Crabtree, Chief Happiness Officer at Happy Brain Science, recommends playing with 4-10 people for the ideal experience, the game also includes solitaire modes.
It’s a fun way to learn about the science of happiness and each other while you play. It gets your group talking, laughing, and solving real-world workplace problems.
By playing, you’ll learn
- science-based strategies to boost happiness, productivity, and collaboration.
The game includes:
- over 50 common problems from the real working world,
- 100 solutions to those problems (grounded in solid science),
- an instruction booklet, and
- online resources.
Discounts for government, nonprofit and education organizations are available.
