Episode 28 – Amy Scott – 100 Happy Days and Beyond

Amy Scott interview on Simple Daily Practice Podcast

Amy had been seeing various gratitude practices and challenges going around social media.  When a friend started the 100 Happy Days Challenge (take a photo of something that made you happy for 100 days), she was intrigued.

She went to the website, and decided to do it.  It felt doable to her.  She was already taking and posting photos regularly, and her schedule looked very stable for the next 100 days, so she dove in.

She found that the challenge really did shift her viewpoint from what she didn’t like in a situation to what she did.  It wasn’t just the 5 minutes it took to take the photo and post it to social media.  She found herself noticing what was making her happy throughout her day.

Hear Amy’s story of how this practice has changed her life and her experience of daily practice.

In this interview, Amy shares:

  • how she dealt with capturing things online that made her happy
  • her reaction to days she didn’t post a picture
  • why this practice felt doable to her
  • how the public accountability shaped her experience
  • the value of doing a practice for a set number of days
  • her tips for linking your Instagram account with your Facebook profile and pages
  • her commitment to continue posting photos every day until our follow up interview with the hashtag #nomadlife

  • Thanks for interviewing me, Peggy! What a great idea to continue to add on to this interview over time and see how my practice has unfolded since I finished the challenge.

    • I had a great time with you, Amy. I loved the multiple installments, too, and I’ve started another one with Britt Nemeth on her year long photography practice for 2015.
