2011 Happiness Challenge: For those of you following the 2011 Happiness Project Challenge, to make 2011 a happier year — and even if you haven’t officially signed up for the challenge — welcome! This month’s theme is Creativity, and last week’s resolution was to Force yourself to wander. Did you try that resolution? Did it boost your happiness?
This week’s resolution is to Take time for projects.
If you want to read more about this resolution, check out…

How about you? Have you found that doing a big project has boosted your happiness? What kind of project?
If you're new, here’s information on the 2011 Happiness Challenge. It’s never too late to start! You’re not behind, jump in right now, sign up here.
