Start a Happiness Jar Now to Have a Year’s Worth of Memories to Look Back On

Rather than ending the year wondering what you did for the past 12 months, keep track of your best memories with a simple DIY. All you need is a mason jar, scraps of paper (or Post-its), and a pen.

Starting today, write down your happiest moment on a sticky note either daily or weekly. Fill up your jar throughout the year, and on Dec. 31 read them all one by one! And don’t overthink it. It can be as meaningful or silly as you want it to be – whatever moment brings you joy is worth adding to your jar. See 12 ideas ahead to get you started!
