Suggestions for a happier YOU

Sunday, August 3, 2008

Faced with inflation, job recession, and other stresses in our modern lives, we need to be creative to find ways to stay afloat sane during these times. We deal with personal problems daily, as well as handle difficulties with our relationships with people, be it with our family members, partners, friends, co-workers, or even strangers. In a dog-eat-dog world, it really is a busy and stressful life.

So, is happiness elusive? I don't think so. If we know how to balance our priorities, invest our time on the things that matter most, I think we will find fulfillment and at least a little happiness that we are looking for. Sometimes, we don't have to look far, because being happy depends on our behavior, our way of life, our lifestyle and way of thinking. Nevertheless, an article from Reader's Digest gives 20 tips on how we can be and how to stay happy.

Here they come

1. Practice mindfulness.
2. Laugh out loud.
3. Go to sleep.
4. Hum along.
5. Declutter.
6. Just say no.
7. Make a list.
8. Do one thing at a time.
9. Garden.
10. Tune out the news.
11. Take a dog for a walk.
12. Scent the air.
13. Ignore the stock market.
14. Visit a quiet place.
15. Volunteer.
16. Spend time alone.
17. Walk mindfully.
18. Give priority to close relationships.
19. Take care of the soul.
20. Count your blessings.
