CODE Community Support Group – Week 18 – Happiness

12 March 2021

“Happiness can be found even in the darkest of places, if one only remembers to turn on the light”

We are still offering our support group once a week, giving you the best support and advice possible.

Coventry – Wednesdays, 1pm – 3pm

Leicester – Thursdays, 2pm – 4pm

Tackling the topics that are most important to you, we want to make sure you get the support you need.

This week we looked at how focusing on your mental health can bring you happiness and how focussing on happiness can improve your mental. We also looked at things you can do to make yourself happier.

Being happy means so many different things to so many different people, so it is important not to compare your happiness to others and to focus on what really makes you happy. Your happiness is more important than others.

There are daily, weekly, monthly and yearly habits you can implement to help kickstart your happiness journey. We’ve summarised a few below:


  • Smile
  • Exercise
  • Getting plenty of rest
  • Be grateful



  • Declutter
  • See friends
  • Plan your week
  • Ditch your phone (for an hour a week)



  • Give Back
  • Take yourself out
  • Create a thought list



  • Take time to reflect
  • Re-evaluate your goals
  • Take care of your body


There are many other ways to improve on your level of happiness, all of which can be found in our session content.

So, if you were unable to make it – or if you wanted a refresher- you can download our session content here.
