Day 2: two random acts of kindness
Day 3:three items of food that you eat mindfully

Day 6: six minutes of silence – just listen to your breathing
Day 7: seven people who have made you happy this day, week, month, year. Think about them, tell them, thank them.

Day 11: eleven minutes’ walk in the fresh air (at least)
Day 12: twelve ways to be more mindful in the new year: think of them, write them down, tell someone else what they are!
