What a great year for SoHaPP, and this community made it so – from Carol Decker to Laughter Therapy, Dick Van Dyke to Forest Bathing, and don’t forget the Dalai Lama or those kids zooming around the bases, having fun crawling through boxes and stomping balloons. Our movement is growing, and it’s all thanks to those living on the Plateau and beyond.
We’ve learned a lot this year, all with the goal of mental wellness. Do you want to strengthen habits that improve mental well-being? Join the movement. Learn more at our web site, www.sohapp.org, and share our Facebook page.
But for the moment, we’re going to celebrate with food and drink and dancing! The Friends of SoHaPP — Science of Happiness and Positive Psychology — is gathering at The Claw this Friday to end out our year to learn some Scottish country dancing, otherwise known as “ceilidh” (pronounced “KAY lee”). Learning a new dance happens to be the best activity to keep your brain healthy, tying music to body movement with social interaction.
Apparently it’s simple to learn and do, even for kids. They do it at the Danish Hall every Monday, but this Friday, it’s happening at The Claw. And it’s just for Friends, so do you want to become a Friend of SoHaPP? Please contact us at our website (www.sohapp.org) and share our message far and wide.
Watch for us next November when we start anew strengthening our Habits for Happiness, becoming more grateful, positive, mindful, kind and active.
